Mini Patchwork Sampler Quilt Tutorial Series.

Mini Patchwork Quilt Tutorial Series.

There are so many great quilt blocks out there I’ve been itching to try. I just don’t like the idea of making the same block repeatedly for one quilt. So, why not a sampler quilt?

I’ve decided to make it different than your average sampler quilt. All the blocks will be mini versions of themselves, because I have so many itty bitty scraps to use up. Basically, I’ll make each 12” block a four-block block of itself. (If that makes sense!?)

Originally, I intended to do this slowly, one block at a time over many months and when I finished a block share it with you here on the blog. But I thought: why not show you how I made the block with a tutorial.
Yes, I’m planning a Mini Patchwork Sampler Quilt Tutorial Series.

I’m hoping to make 20 blocks, so with sashing and border, I can make at least a 6’ by 7’ quilt. So far I have about 13 in mind. (If you have any suggestions for interesting blocks, speak up!) Every week I’ll share a new mini patchwork block tutorial. (I’m hesitant to call it a “mini block” because they will be the traditional 12” block when finished.) So it should take five months total. Totally sounds reasonable, right?

The tutorial series is only for the blocks themselves, in the end you’ll have to have the knowledge and creativity to finish the quilt as desired—piecing the top together, quilting it, binding, etc.

This post will be home base, where I list all links to the blocks as they go live.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing this — I’ve actually been perusing many quilting sites trying to get my mojo going to use up scraps and fabric bits that I have on-hand. Obviously, I’m going to use your tutorial — it’s just what I want!

    It’s a great idea, Liesl! I’m thinking these are going to be tricky at such a small size. Do tell us how much time they take you, k?

    How lovely! Can’t wait to see your blocks!

    As for some ideas… I love Log Cabin and string quilts. Ooh, you should do a dresden block or maybe wedding ring. So many choices!
