Simple Whatnots Miniature Quilts Club
We are excited to announce the new Simple Whatnots Miniature Quilts Club featuring Vintage Farmhouse fabric by Kim Diehl beginning in July! Miniature quilts are everywhere these days and this program gives you a great excuse to sew one up each month to round out 2014. Kim Diehl, the designer extroudinare behind the Simple Whatnots Club is here to tell you about all six quilts in the program, so keep reading for a closer look at these miniature quilt patterns!
This colorful little patchwork quilt is simple to stitch, and I really love the sense of movement that the rows of triangles bring. Because I'm one if those quilters who think everything is better with a little dollop of appliqué, I decided to offer this design in both a patchwork and appliqué medallion version. So, the only question is...to appliqué, or not to appliqué?
This little quilt features traditional patchwork in a rainbow of colors, and the scaled-down block size really adds a lot of charm to the finished look. Nothing fancy, nothing formal, but I think there's a little bit of magic happening here.
This sweet little quilt shows off six patchwork blocks in a simple setting, with endless possibilities for mixing and matching your prints. The red sashing strips are stitched from one of my favorite Vintage Farmhouse red prints, and I love how the black corner posts make them look almost transparent. Best of all, the small size of this quilt means it can be pieced in a snap!
This small quilt combines traditional patchwork with a classic color scheme, and the finished look is truly timeless. If piecing is normally your technique of choice, this project, with just the tiniest bit of appliqué, may be the perfect way to dabble in something new...and you may discover a new favorite past time!
This little patchwork quilt shows off one of my very favorite things...checkerboard squares. To me, there are few things more homey and inviting than small-scale squares stitched from a rainbow of colors, and I love how they look like quilted confetti!
This pint-sized quilt combines easy-to-appliqué leaves with a sprinkling of tiny yo-yos, and it's a cinch to stitch with the help of Clover's extra-small yo-yo maker. The petite size of this quilt also let me indulge myself in some big-stitch hand quilting, which is a rare treat, and it's the icing on the cake!
