I had some scraps left over from my Cookie Dough quilt. I didn’t have enough to make the entire pattern, but I got 6 blocks squeezed out of it.

Mini patterns are a great way to audition a pattern and fabric choice.  This is such a sweet pattern, I think I’ll over the full sized pattern and make a larger wall hanging.

I used 4 blocks for the table topper and 2 blocks to make hot pads.  It should make a nice kitchen set to give away at a future date.

So, here is yet another project from the Smitten fabric line. The pattern is for a small wallhanging, but I revised it to make a cover for my Bernina 740.  It is so pretty. I just love looking at it.

I’ve never done a picture project like this and during the cutting process, I got a little scared.  There are a LOT of little pieces.

Once I got started sewing, I realized it just goes together in small easy segments and then you sew the segments together. It ended up taking a couple of hours to construct.  No problem!

To match my Swoon 16 Bed Quilt, I made a very small replica wallhanging, The Mini Swoon by Thimble Blossoms. The mini quilt measures 19″ x 19″ and uses the smallest scraps.  The Swoon block is a bit time consuming and this mini version is no exception. The small pieces can be a bit tedious but is well worth the trouble.

Mini Swoon by Thimble BlossomsI only had a few little bitty pieces of fabric left after finishing the bedquilt and this pattern has pieces so small that I could just eek out enough to get this one little quilt done and I love it.  It is one of those little projects that gives you a lot of bang for your buck with a large wow factor.

I added a Flange Binding like I did on the bed sized quilt.  I really like this binding technique.  It frames a quilt nicely and it can be done on the sewing machine without hand stitching.  I added Missouri Star Quilt Co. tutorial on Flange Binding at the bottom of this post.
