Challenging free pattern tutorial will test your accurate seam allowances to make a mini quilt with 448 pieces.
We all have those days… and those projects! This project is the front of the mini quilt I showed yesterday in my mini quilt hanging tutorial. This mini quilt was my design for the Fort Worth Fabric Studio Mini Quilt Mania for the month of April.

It’s a challenging little miniature quilt. The blocks are 3.5″ finished, so each of those little squares and HSTs finish at 1/2″.
I really like the secondary design that is created by this block, and really wanted to try the block out, so it seemed like a good idea to try it out really small. Ask me again in a couple weeks if it was a good idea or not!
Not to scare anyone off, but there are 448 tiny pieces in this quilt.
If you are careful and precise, it is a do-able project, I promise!
I called it one of those days because as I was assembling it, I was making pretty good progress. Then, I noticed that one of these things was not like the others. So, I seam ripped, and pulled the offending section out and resewed it in place correctly.
What I did not notice, was that a second thing was not like the others. Not through pressing, adding borders, or until I was about 2/3 of the way done quilting and it was too late to tear it out and redo it because I had quilted too close around it. Like I said, one of those days!
At least my test to see how this block looks as a quilt was successful! Now to move on to the full sized version!
