Sometimes, it’s hard to be patient! I made this little mini quilt, called Tiny 3, last July. It was intended for an issue of Modern Patchwork but, when the magazine closed, they found a new home (and name) for it in the current issue of Quiltmaker Magazine. They have named the quilt Tiny Town and you can find it on page 36.
You know that I made this mini using foundation piecing, but they have made simple stitch and flip directions (I hear a bunch of you sighing with relief!). So, it’s a pretty quick sew. You just need to keep track of your fabric colors. While I used a modification of the Flying Geese block, I rotated the blocks to create new shapes. And I played with the background color making it change from white to gold and then to white again.
I quilted with vertical straight lines spaced a 1/4″ apart using a gold colored Aurifil 50 weight thread for the quilting. In some areas, it blends, and in others, it pops providing some added interest.
I really like the design of this mini so I am happy that I can finally share it with you and that the publishers were able to ultimately present it in the July/August Quiltmaker.
**Please note that the caption on page 36 of the magazine states that the fabrics in the mini are from my collection. This is an error. They are mainly Art Gallery Pure Elements and some Kona solids.
