Pint-sized quilting projects that pack a punch. Quilting. The word alone makes quilters of all levels think of the beauty…the creativity…the storytelling…the commitment! Well, now all the rewards of quilting can be enjoyed easier and faster than ever with Mini Quilts: Fun Patterns to Quilt in a Snap. Each tiny, 16-inch square mini quilt—there are 20 mini projects in all—gives you the freedom to master new quilting techniques that will serve you well when you turn your attention to the additional 5 larger projects at the back of the book. These include a tote, throw, pillow cover, baby quilt, and table runner.

Mini Quilts presents step-by-step instructions for all sorts of wonderful quilt techniques to sample and experience. Each mini quilt is a fun and worthwhile project on its own, a way to use leftover scraps or fabric stash, and can also be used as a component in a larger project. The 20 fabulous mini quilt “workshops” are quick-to-make little quilts, each highlighting a single quilting technique, including:

  • Hand-tying a quilt
  • Precision piecing
  • Appliqué
  • Embroidery
  • Curved piecing 
  • And more!

Mini Quilts offers you the equivalent of 25 classes in a single book, all taught by sought-after quilting teacher Jodie Davis. Full-size quilts can take months to create, but these projects can be made in a snap—offering you a satisfying way to master a host of techniques quickly and easily. The mini quilts have the added benefit of becoming useful components for a larger project if desired. With 200 photographs and illustrations throughout, you’ll find the instruction easy to follow and the results even easier to envision.
