Weekend Warriors: Make Mini Quilts That Will Amaze!

Are you ready for this weekend’s quilting challenge? For our true weekend warriors, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite easy mini quilt patterns to sew this weekend!


For some of the easier patterns, you could sew up the top, create your quilt sandwich, quilt and bind in a day! If you choose a more intricate patchwork or paper piecing pattern, take Friday night to plan out your approach, cut fabrics to size and print our your templates. Saturday can be for piecing the top, and Sunday for quilting and binding.

Ready… Set… Sew!
