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.
