Yes, you still have time to make a Valentine Mini Quilt for someone you love!
Download this free pattern: loved-mini-quilt-pattern and whip up this mini in no time flat! It measures 15 x 14 inches and can be completed by February 14th…honest!
I designed this mini quilt pattern to go together fast and easy. I’ve made three of these so far and plan to make a few more! While this pattern is nice for Valentine’s Day, I think it will work for other special occasions too, don’t you?
Maybe instead of the word “loved” you could insert a name…I might do that on my next one. I used fabric paint and stencils for the letters but for those of you who have an embroidery machine, the possibilities are endless for embroidering borders and words!
The mini below went to mom because she loves hummingbirds. I found this cute Cotton + Steel print and I fussy cut the birds…well worth the effort! Then I decided to go non-conventional and use navy as a border accent because the birds are navy.
Here’s a full view of the pink and white mini. This went to a friend of mine who has a cat. This print is called “Naptime 2” by Darlene Zimmerman, a designer for Robert Kaufman Fabrics.
I quilted around each letter and then went to town on straight line quilting the heart block and borders. These mini quilts are helping me practice my machine quilting skills, WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE ABOUT THAT?!
