A couple of years ago I made my Tumbling Spools quilt for Quilt Now magazine. I decided I wanted to redesign it before releasing it as a pattern. I wanted it to be smaller so it would be perfect for most people’s craft rooms. I also wanted to make it a bit more interesting! So, say hello to the Tumbling Spools Sampler Mini Quilt.
This super cute mini quilt finishes up at about 22x32 inches and will cheer up your crafty space! It features a stack of spool blocks on the left that appear to be tumbling down. To the right are words relating to quilting: Cut; Stitch; Baste; Quilt; Bind; & Repeat.
The blocks are foundation paper pieced. You can choose to make up the six different sampler blocks if you like, where the centre of each block is a different pattern. But there are also patterns where the centres are plain so you can fussy cut your favourite fabrics instead. The lattern option is a simpler option better for those just beginning with FPP.
There are also two options when it comes to the words. Quilt them in place. Or appliqué them. Totally up to you. Templates and instructions for both are included.
Why not make a Mini Mini and just make one quilt and one word!
This comprehensive 23 page pattern includes:
- Full materials requirements
- Full colour instructions
- Cutting Instructions
- Piecing instructions
- Eight foundation paper piecing patterns
- Tips for effective foundation paper piecing
- Word templates for applique or quilting
- Guidance on scrappy binding
IMPORTANT: This pattern assumes the reader has the knowledge to baste, quilt and bind the quilt. However for those of you new to quilting I have added some tutorials on this on my website in the Tutorial Section.
If you don’t know how to FPP then check out the FREE video tutorial on my website.
Make sure to read the whole pattern all the way through before beginning your project.I'm hosting a Quiltalong for this mini quilt in January 2019! Plenty of AMAZING prizes from AMAZING sponsors!! You can sign up to a Quiltalong Newsletter so you don’t miss a thing.
