Patchwork City Mini Mini Quilt

I was resisting jumping into the Mini Mini Swap on Instagram until Lydia posted the pile of adorable mini minis that she had created. I just loved the Alison Glass star that she made (top middle), and offered to swap with her. Lydia's favorite colors are raspberry, mango, aqua and yellow. It took me a few days to formulate a plan, but I decided on a raspberry-colored half-sized Patchwork City block for the mini. Mine measures 4 1/2" square. I paper pieced the roof/sky sections of the mini so I wouldn't have to deal with tiny templates and the rectangular pieces were simply machine pieced. I went with crosshatch quilting, echoing the angle of the roof lines. I used Quilting Jetgirl's tutorial for mini mini binding.

This was a lot of fun to make and I think I'll make some more using the Patchwork City patterns. I hope people are still swapping mini minis on IG once I get to them.

  1. My goodness, Sarah, you have been busy lately! I have feeling you are always busy. I love this tiny treasure and the idea of half-sizing a Patchwork City block and making it into a mini mini quilt. It has your stamp on it, even though it is only 4 1/2" square. You continue to inspire me!

      Yes, I kind of am always busy. Though, keep in mind that some of the finishes I'm sharing this month were completed in November. :-)

      Thanks! I should have mentioned that the fabrics are from the Intrepid Thread Patchwork City block of the month. I really need to get back to that project. ;-)

      The mini minis I've made of the PC blocks were so fast and easy compared to the big project that is taking me forever. Ironically, I'm not a real fan of samplers, but I really do like the look of the whole PC quilt. Perhaps it's the rainbow color palette, or that each unit has a similar design with the three smaller sections. Thanks for visiting, Sue.
