Some more mini fun for Paper Piecing Monday

A couple of months ago I signed up for another mini quilt swap, this time for Heather Ross fabric… it was another opportunity to make a fun little quilt and I could not resist.

When I pulled out my Heather Ross stash I knew I wanted a quilt block that allowed me to do some serious fussy cutting…and after some umming and ahhing I decided on a simple triangle block.

These blocks are 2 1/2 inches square and are the perfect size to fit some of the darling illustrations on the fabric…

I made each block individually, so that I could play with layout and colour placement… and turn one block on its side….

But for the free pattern for this mini quilt, I included a two triangle block to make things a little quicker and easier, if you know you layout before you start.  You can find the free pattern PDF here….Triangle mini quilt pattern

I was away when the Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt swap sign ups were on… but with 1008 people signed up to play there is going to be a lot of mini quilt activity over the next couple of months on Instagram, Flickr and blogs.  I love it.

  2. Adorable! I love all the fussy cut triangles. I hope it’s OK … I shared your photo and a link here on BlockLotto.com We are making a larger version of these triangles (4 at a time) for this month’s block and I knew everyone would love to see your quilt.
