IG Mini Quilt Finished!

by Nicole

If you’ve been following along with my IG mini quilt making, you’ll remember that I’ve been working on lots of tiny blocks. For more on those blocks, see my previous posts here and here.

I’m happy to report that those little blocks grew into this mini quilt.

The quilt measured 18″ by 24″ with each block finishing at 4.5.”

I used invisible (AKA monofilament) thread for the quilting. I love using invisible thread when I have lots of different colors in the quilt and don’t want the distraction from a contrasting thread color. It blends right it!

One of the blocks that didn’t work for the front of the quilt became the label on the back.

Along with the quilt, I included a few extras for my partner: Tula Pink fabric, a seam ripper, thread, needles, and a pincushion.


I made a little lined drawstring bag to hold the extras. I used a tutorial by It’s Organised that I found through Debbie’s Sew Mama Sew post.

The mini quilt and extras have arrived at their new home with Julie of Quilty Sewing. From what I can tell from Julie’s comments on IG, they are getting lots of love!

Linking up to Finish It Up Friday!

How beautiful! I love the fabrics, the blocks, the quilting (I quilt with monofilament a lot, for the same reasons!). Beautiful package!
