Mini Quilts Discussion: Video with Kimberly & Sherri McConnell!

We love quilts of any and all sizes, but there's something particularly fun about a Mini Quilt.  Not only are minis super adorable and perfect for wall décor or a table topper, but they're a great way to try out a new technique without committing to it for a big, time-consuming quilt.  Sew fun!  They also make great gifts and can be made into beautiful throw pillows!

Today we're pleased to share a final video featuring special guest Sherri McConnell - fabric designer and pattern designer.  Sherri shares her mini quilts with us, made from patterns sold at the Fat Quarter Shop, and they're gorgeous! http://www.fatquartershop.com/quilting-life-designs


We hope you'll pick a favorite pattern and share it in a comment on this post. We're dying to know which pattern is your #1 fav! Happy MINI Quilting!

Star Shine really shines for me in the minis, but I have to confess that my absolute favorite pattern from Sherri is Anasazi!

I've made her Mini Shine and love it. I was able to quilt it on my regular machine which I loved. I think I will try Hope Chest next.

Her patterns are gorgeous! I love dreamcatcher.

Cheryl said...

I love Hope Chest. I find it amazing how this pattern can look so different depending on the choice of fabrics. It's hard to believe the mini and full size are the same pattern! I love it!!

I just love Sherri's Star Bright mini pattern.

I'm torn between "Hope Chest" and "Summer Star", so I guess I'll just declare TWO favorites!

Summer star is awesome sauce.

My favorite block is broken dishes. Sherry's Hope Chest has a great setting for the block.

GranChris said...

I like a lot of them but Hope Chest would be my favorite.

Star Bright and/or Star Bright Mini. I'd probably make the mini. I've never made a mini quilt and this looks like the one to start with. The star block is a favorite of mine. Sewing stars together makes me think of summer nights spent outdoors (camping) with my family and my uncle Sam, teaching me about the stars when I was a curious young thing
