XOXO Mini Tutorial from Gotham Quilts

I’d like to welcome Ivete from Gotham Quilts today. She has offered to share a free tutorial with my readers just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Ivete says:

“I’ve had an idea for a simple XOXO mini wall quilt for a while now, and with Valentine’s Day around the corner this was the perfect time to finally do it!

The sample is made in Tula Pink Moon Shine, her latest collection, but I can see making this with some Cotton & Steel, or maybe in all solids? Or bold black and white would be fun too, for a totally different look! Oooh, or how cute would it be with a text print as the background? So many ideas . . . I may have to make another one for myself!

Looking to make one in the same fabrics I used? We have a kit available in our shop here.

Please share your XOXO mini on Instagram and tag it with the hastag #xoxomini so that I can see your creation! I can’t wait to see your versions start to pop up in my feed. Oh, and follow us on Instagram @gothamquilts!”

  1. This is really cute and simple. I love that my skills have grown enough for me to see how this is put together without even looking at the pattern. I think I’ll whip one of these up for my sewing room wall. Thanks for sharing, have a grand day!

  2. It’s so nice to see something that can be used for valentine’s day that isn’t made of fabric INTENDED for valentine’s day. Very cute!

  3. Sweet mini ~ they seem to be all the rage right now! Thanks for the tutorial ~ I’m getting right on it!

  4. Thanks Amy and Ivete. I will have to try this one of these days. I haven’t sewn anything in over 20 years and have never quilted, but I keep wanting to try something easy.

  5. I believe the pattern has an error. The instructions call for 16 2″X2″ background squares. According to the layout, it should take 32. ( 2 for each of the 16 squares that are 3 1/2″).

    It’s a beautiful little quilt. I start sewing it together tomorrow!
    Thanks for sharing the pattern.
