There Much To Be Grateful for…

More mini quilts! These are 12” x 12”. In order to do this design you cut 3.5” squares to allow for the 1/4” seams. I stitched in ditch and bought the lettering to stick on the finished mini quilt.

The above is even simpler. I fussy cut the 4.5” squares. Another stitch in ditch and binding with a hanging sleeve in back and you are finished.

Back to 3.5” squares. I did 1/4” stitching on seams and satin stitched the lettering.

These mini quilts are perfect for practicing matching seams. My friend, Linda, suggested to me to sew 4 squares together then sew the block to another block of 4 squares. It makes matching seams easier than sewing row by row or column by column of single squares. It seemed to work for me. I’m pleased with the way the seams matched on these mini quilts.

2020 has been a scary year with the pandemic, hurricanes, family unemployment and illnesses, along with the normal ups and downs of life. But, as I made these mini quilts, I was reminded of how many things I am thankful for this year.
