Guest Author - Kim Noblin

January Thaw Mini Quilt

Quilt Size:  32-1/2" x 32-1/2"

Block Size:  6"

Number of Blocks:  16

Technique:  Foundation Paper-Piecing

Materials:

  • 1/2 yard Orange fabric
  • 1/3 yard Yellow fabric
  • 1/2 yard Purple fabric
  • 1/4 yard Red fabric
  • 1/3 yard Light Blue fabric
  • 1/2 yard Light Orange Print fabric
  • 1/2 yard Green fabric
  • 1 yard Dark Blue fabric
  • 38" x 38" piece of backing fabric
  • 38" x 38" piece of batting

Cutting Instructions:

Note: When paper-piecing, I cut larger pieces than I actually need to ensure that I won't have problem covering an area if I don't place it in exactly the right spot. The cutting instructions below are for larger pieces. If you'd rather cut smaller, more exact pieces, feel free to do so.

Instructions:

Step 1: Print out SIXTEEN COPIES of the paper foundation pattern. Cut out each of the paper-piecing units just outside of the dashed lines of the seam allowance.  WebTV users may click here to view a printable image of the paper foundation pattern.

Step 2: Using a VERY short stitch length setting on your sewing machine, paper-piece each unit following the numbers on the printed foundation.

Step 3: When all of the units have been pieced, carefully trim away the excess paper and fabric by cutting on the dashed lines of the seam allowance.

Step 4: Arrange the paper-pieced units according to the quilt image at the top of this pattern.  With right sides together, sew units together to form four rows and press seams on each row in opposite directions.  Sew the four rows together to finish the quilt center and press seams in one direction.

Step 5:  Carefully remove paper from the back of the quilt.

Step 6: With right sides together, add the inner borders by sewing the shorter strips to the left and right sides of the quilt center.  Press seams toward the inner border.  Sew the longer strips to the top and bottom of the quilt and press seams toward the inner border.

Step 7: With right sides together, add the outer borders by sewing the shorter strips to the left and right sides of the inner border.  Press seams toward the inner border.  Sew the longer strips to the top and bottom of the inner border and press seams toward the inner border.

Step 8: Quilt and bind as desired.
