The other day I teased you with a sneak peak of my mini that I made for the Mini Quilt Challenge over at Amy Lou Who Sews. The challenge was simple enough, make a mini, and share it as part of Amy’s Sew & Tell. So, here it is, my Folded Star Mini. It is a play off the traditional folded star trivet. I added few more rows and used some bright and colorful Kona solids.
This mini was a little bit of a challenge as I had never made a folded star quilt before, and most of the tutorials I found online only included the first couple of rows, but I think I did a good job or making sure all the prairie points lined up. The hardest part was cutting the circle perfectly round and putting on the binding. Let’s just say I am using this mini as a learning experience. I have definitely learned a lot for next time.
Fabrics: Kona, red, orange, chartreuse, aqua, crocus, and coal
Finished Quilt Measurements: about 14" circle
Blocks and Piecing: prairie points
Quilting: none needed it is a quilt as you go process
Today, I am linking this up to Amy’s Mini Quilt Challenge. So head on over and check out what everybody else has made. Have a great day!
