Now that the baby quilts are finished and gifted to the respective babies, and the class quilt is finally done, I’m on to a new project. My mother in law, JoAnn, has a beautiful mini quilt hanging outside of her quilting room, and it inspired me to try one of my own. For my dad’s birthday I created a miniature star quilt using contrasting blues and yellows. I used Mary Graham’s pattern available here.
During this project, rather too late to use it, I discovered paper piecing. Paper piecing looks like a great way to deal with intricate patterns and small pieces. I’m not sure how it is in practice, but I’ll definitely be trying this method for my next mini quilt.
