This sweet Mini Mushroom Quilt was so fun to sew up and just perfect for fussy cutting!
I’ve been wanting to practice my paper piecing after sitting in on Christopher Thompson’s paper piecing class at the Garden of Quilts! I’d done a little paper piecing last year with the fun Ugly Christmas Sweater mug rugs but I really need to keep practicing!
Aren’t they sweet?! It’s hard to tell in the photos but these are nice and small. They work out so great with showing some of the little details in the fabrics. I love how the kitties worked out – and you can even spot a little lady bug here and there!
To finish the mushroom quilt I added sashing around the mushroom to make the block 5″ x 5″. Then I added 5″ x 1 1 /4″ (finished) sashing with 1 1/4″ x 1 1/4″ corner blocks. Super easy to do and it is such a fun way to show off all the mushroom blocks you’ll make when you see how fun and easy they are! :) I ended up with a finished 21″ x 21″ mini quilt! Perfect for a little wall decoration or table topper. It’d be a great pillow front too!
To make up the mini mushroom quilt I added white sashing around the block, then sewed together the blocks with more Rose Lane prints for sashing and borders. I used the Rose Lane Main White print for the back. And isn’t the hexie print fun as a binding?!
