Pattern for Valentine's Mini Quilt designed by Sarah Ashford of Sarah Ashford Studio.
You will need:
- 5 Fat 8ths from a Ruby Reds Fat 8ths Pack
- Grey for the background - Sarah suggests Lipari Pollara, Colourshott Vintage Silver, Colourshott Charcoal, or Scandinavia Stockholm
This design lends itself equally well to table mats, cushions, wall hangings, quilts and more - designs that last the year round.
To accompany the pattern, Sarah provides some hints and tips for successful Foundation Paper Piecing:
- All seam allowances 1/4” unless otherwise stated
- Make sure you print your pattern pieces at ‘Actual Size’ with no scaling on your printer
- Shorten your stitch length to allow for easier removal of papers
- An ‘Add a Quarter’ ruler is really useful to get accurate seam allowances
- Make sure you cover all the seam allowance with your fabric. Hold it up to the light to check
- Press as you go
- Backstitch at the beginning and end of each line to reinforce the seam
- Happy stitching!
To construct the mini quilt, join
- Block A to block B
- Block C to block D
- Blocks A and B to blocks C and D
