For me, nothing says summer like thoughts of spending time around water, whether on a beach, in a boat, at a pool, or in a summer rain shower. I selected a grouping of 9 cotton solids, and playing off a nautical theme I created a fun, skill building mini quilt.

This mini quilt will help develop consistent 1/4-inch seam allowance skills, agility in handling smaller piecing (1 1/2-inch wide strips), and familiarity with methods to make some standard quilt blocks that are building blocks for many other patterns. The resulting mini quilt looks less scrappy due to intentional use of blending backgrounds and the nautical flag theme.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 31 1/2-inches x 31 1/2-inches


  • 7 fat quarters
  • 1/2 yard of background fabric (navy)
