Mini Quilts Discussion: Video with Kimberly & Sherri McConnell!

We love quilts of any and all sizes, but there’s something particularly fun about a Mini Quilt.  Not only are minis super adorable and perfect for wall d├ęcor or a table topper, but they’re a great way to try out a new technique without committing to it for a big, time-consuming quilt.  Sew fun!  They also make great gifts and can be made into beautiful throw pillows!

Today we’re pleased to share a final video featuring special guest Sherri McConnell – fabric designer and pattern designer.  Sherri shares her mini quilts with us, made from patterns sold at the Fat Quarter Shop, and they’re gorgeous!

We hope you’ll pick a favorite pattern and share it in a comment on this post. We’re dying to know which pattern is your #1 fav! Happy MINI Quilting!


  1. I've made her Mini Shine and love it. I was able to quilt it on my regular machine which I loved. I think I will try Hope Chest next.

  2. I love Hope Chest. I find it amazing how this pattern can look so different depending on the choice of fabrics. It's hard to believe the mini and full size are the same pattern! I love it!!

  3. Star Bright and/or Star Bright Mini. I'd probably make the mini. I've never made a mini quilt and this looks like the one to start with. The star block is a favorite of mine. Sewing stars together makes me think of summer nights spent outdoors (camping) with my family and my uncle Sam, teaching me about the stars when I was a curious young thing
