Tiny quilt pattern

The Tiny quilt has 9 blocks 3″ x 3″ blocks assembled with sashing.

I made all the blocks with foundation piecing. In such small sizes it’s a lot easier to get an accurate block that using traditional piecing.

I normally use regular copy paper but in small sizes it can be a bit thick. You can use special paper for foundation piecing if you prefer.

Blocks can be made with traditional piecing or with foundation piecing.

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.

Buy individual chapters of my book

Now that my publisher is going out of business I have bought the rights to publish my book. Now you can download individual chapters. Each digital download is a bundle with 4 quilt patterns in it.

As well as the instructions and fabric needs to make the blocks you’ll find a section on quiltmaking basics at the end of the pattern that discusses:

  • Tools
  • Squaring up blocks
  • Borders
  • Assembly and quilting
  • Binding

  3. Is there a recommended fabric requirement if I want to make all the blocks coordinate? I’m trying to decide between random scraps or using 3 or 4 fat quarters for the blocks

  4. I don’t have any recommendation for it but 4 FQ and a background fabric is plenty. I used more than 4 fabrics because I was working off some of my small fabric scraps. But I made sure I had the same background and the pink fabric with small red triangles in several blocks to give it a more cohesive look.
