I really love getting to make special quilted rewards for my Patreon supporters, and last month I had the opportunity to piece a mini mini quilt for a patron who has enjoyed watching my fussy cutting skills evolve through the Splendid Sampler 2. They also mentioned liking purple, teal, and gray. Now that the mini mini quilt has been sent and received, I can share it here, too!
My favorite detail in this mini mini quilt are the two tiny fussy cut rabbits in the corners. They were the very first fabric I cut while establishing my sewing space in Wabi-Sabi Overland.
The teal is an Alison Glass Sunprint that also provided great opportunities for fussy cutting, and the purple is my absolute favorite print by Rashida Colemand Hale, Mochi Floral Purple. I still have a few tiny snippets of the print left and plan to use it to the last thread.
Rashida’s print is so perfect it had to be the backing for the mini mini. It has just the same shade of teal as the Sunprint. Perfection!
I used matching 50wt Aurifil thread colors to the gray, teal, and purple prints to quilt simple straight lines to finish the mini. My mother gifted me with a lovely spring time bouquet which kept my home smelling delightful for a week and also served as a fun backdrop for these photos.
Have you given tiny making a try? I’ll be talking about how important these small makes are to my design and creativity process while helping workshop attendees step into the world of fun mini mini making in a full day workshop at Vermont Quilt Festival on June 28th.

I love it more each day and the flowers are a nice touch, 🙂 Katie
Delightful! I can see how this tiny rendering could contribute to future design… next chapter:TBA.
Your tiny quilt is exquisite, I like aqua and purple too.
I clicked on the link to your Wabi-Sabi post and was fascinated by all of those pictures! I had wondered if you’d find a way to include your sewing machine – and a way to cut and press too! I don’t know about you but I’d go into withdrawal if I couldn’t sew at least 4-5 times a week ; -}. You and your husband are an impressive engineering team. I hope your journey is safe and full of fun. How long do you plan to be on the road?
Good luck and God bless.
Precious little quilt! LOVE that backing fabric too! I’ve used it in several projects.
Wonderful quilt for a Patreon!
Those are great prints. I haven’t made a mini in a very long time. Maybe time to revisit…..
So very cute! I just uncovered a small one like that I made while cleaning and mine was so misshapen and stretched out. Yours looks great!
I find the idea of working so small fascinating – you always manage to get the scale of your designs just right.
Lovely tiny quilt–I love making minis and have them displayed year-round. They are also perfect for gifts to shut-ins as they don’t take up much space and bring a splash of color. Your mini is terrific!
so sweet!!! LOVe those fabrics!
I need to make some more mini minis as they’re such fun. Love this one, ah purple and teal: perfect combo!
beautiful little mini Yvonne, and perfect too. All the straight lines are straight and the corners are cornered.
I love this mini because your craftsmanship stands out so well. It’s a gem!
