Quilt Petite Blog Hop: Scattered Stars magical mini quilt

When Sedef of Downgrapevinelane asked me to help out with her Quilt Petite Blog Hop, I was happy to agree. The idea of small cute projects  made me happy, because we all know I like immediate gratification. Her Quilt Petite book from Tuva Publishing did not disappoint! It was hard to choose a project but eventually I went with her paper-pieced Scattered Stars mini quilt.



I changed things up a bit, but included one large and one medium star which were both surprisingly simple even though I've only tried the paper-piecing technique a few times. I think these would make great coasters or mug rugs as well all on their own. I had already pulled some fabric choices for a mini quilt to hang in my daughter and son's shared bedroom, so this was perfect motivation to actually make the mini! (Sometimes life is just too busy to make fun things!)



I added multiple hand-embroidered details like the white on white words: dream, explore, imagine. (The border fabric is the Magic line from the amazingly talented Sarah Jane with Michael Miller Fabrics.) I also added metallic gold french knots all around the mini to mimic the gold in the fabric.



This mini quilt was a lot of fun to make, but a little difficult to photograph. Several of the details are much prettier in person! At least the stars look amazing, and really, those are all Sedef, so go grab your own copy of Quilt Petite and make something cute today! Also, If you're looking for inspiration or want to see all the projects from the book, check out the schedule for the blog hop AND all the amazing makers. The list is on Sedef's blog along with several pictures of the projects so far. There are so many amazing finishes!

Happy Sewing!

I'm writing on this topic these days, 우리카지노 , but I have stopped writing because there is no reference material. Then I accidentally found your article. I can refer to a variety of materials, so I think the work I was preparing will work! Thank you for your efforts.
