Today, I have a new mini quilt pattern available in my pattern shop: Playful Partial Seams! I created this mini quilt pattern as an introduction into some of the techniques needed for my larger quilt pattern, Sesen. I often find that a lower risk, small project like a mini quilt is the perfect way to try out new techniques without feeling stressed about the outcome.
Not all seams can be assembled with a continuous straight line; sometimes a piece has to be set in. These seams are often referred to as inset seams or partial seams. In the Playful Partial Seams mini quilt pattern, I walk you through piecing 90-degree inset seams and gentle curve partial seams. I call this design playful because it is meant to be low risk and allow you the opportunity to try a new technique before committing to a larger pattern (like Sesen) that contains these techniques.
I gave the pattern a final test last week when I made the Blue and Yellow version as I meditated on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the ongoing humanitarian crisis.
Playful Partial Seams is a perfect pattern for showcasing some of your favorite large scale prints. The fabric requirements are:
- Fabric A – 1 yard (Tula Pink elephant print in the above photo)
- Fabric B – ½ yard (Stripe print in the above photo)
- Backing – 1 yard
- Binding – ⅜ yard | 3 strips
The Playful Partial Seams mini quilt digital pattern is on sale in my pattern shop for $8 through Monday, March 28th.
