Swoon Mini for the March Minis Challenge and a Giveaway!!!

A bit windy today!
Fat Quarter Shop had a fun mini quilt challenge for the month of March. Sort of a quilting play on March Madness. I chose to make the Thimble Blossoms Swoon mini by Camille Roskelley. I used some of my Aunt Grace prints for the swoon blocks. I ended up not following the pattern entirely because I added star cornerstones instead of regular squares. The blocks were a bit soft colored so I used a bright red Lecien Child's Smile print for the stars. I wanted to spice it up a little!!!

The pattern is fun and I love working with the smaller pieces. Minis are just adorable! and I can add it to my quilt wall. A lot of people are putting minis up and making quilt walls. I love the look of each and everyone I've seen. There are many on IG.

This is my favorite block in the quilt! That green Aunt Grace print is my absolute favorite right now!!!

So now for the fun stuff! Fat Quarter Shop is going to give away a mini quilt pattern to one of you lovelies. HERE is the link to their mini patterns. Take a look and leave me a comment telling me which you would choose.


FQS is also having a super fun giveaway of their own!!! Check out the details HERE!!! Join in on the fun and share your minis using the hashtag #fqsmarchminis on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. 


P.S. I'll post the measurements for the star cornerstones on another post! 

Happy Sewing!

Very hard to choose a favorite Mini pattern. Fig Tree and Thimble Blossom have so many special ones that I want to make. I think the new 'Canning Jar' Mini is my favorite - as it reminds me of my mom's full fruit cellar. Happy Times!

Ruth Lutz said...

Oh what a fun choice of mini quilts! I fell in love with the mini Canned Pears quilt - my kitchen has a collection of Pears and this quilt would be perfect on the back of the breakfast area bench! Thank you for this fun giveaway!
Warm regards,

The mini Stitch quilt pattern by Fig Tree jumped out at me when I looked through the patterns. I do love your mini Swoon also, I have wanted to make a Swoon quilt for some time.

Liz said...

I didn't realize there were so many different mini patterns available now! I probably would start with one of the Thimble Blossoms patterns - Swoon or Dwell. I love your quilt wall, by the way. :)
