Micro Mini Bunny Quilt

Micro Mini Bunny

With Easter approaching I simply had to share with you all this super darling little bunny pattern, especially with the Micro Mini Sew along coming up in May! Find the pattern at the end of the article with a link to download. Finished quilt measures 5" X 4 1/2" tall.

(Micro Mini sew along from May 1-31, 2022)





What is the Micro Mini Sew Along? During the month of May on my Instagram and Facebook page, you can join in the fun of “sewing small”! Dig out your tiny scraps, reduce patterns, or simply go for it and stitch up a quilted project that measures 8” or less. There will be challenges throughout the month including, “smallest quilt”, “treasures from the trash” (sewing a project with only fabrics from your trash bin). Will there be prizes? Oh yes! There will be 15 sponsors this year and some amazing prizes including fabric packs, patterns, quilting tools, needle minders, and more. 



How can you participate? All you need to do is create your own Micro Mini Quilt and post it during the month of May using the hashtag #microminisal on Instagram or Facebook, sponsors will then choose their favourites as winners. I must warn you, once you start sewing small, it can be very addicting, and you will begin to look at your scraps in a whole new way :). Need some inspiration? This will be the forth year of the sew along and there is plenty of teeny tiny quilts posted on the #microminisal page on Instagram for you to admire. You can also find how-to videos showing tips and tricks for sewing your little makes such as, tiny binding, making a 1 1/4” nine patch, and plenty of improv ideas.



Even if you decide you would just like to follow along in the fun, that would be great too! We love comments, feedback and sharing. See you in May!

Micro Mini Log Cabin Heart Pattern

Love is definitely a funny thing. The dictionary describes it as an intense feeling of deep affection. Wikipedia explains love as ‘encompasses a range of strong and positive emotional and mental states.’ However we try to explain it or understand it, love is very exciting, complicated and even painful.  I have spent a good portion of my life dedicated to those I love, by comitting my time, energy, and efforts while creating lasting and meaninful relationships. I have collected these lasting memories that are being stored on the shelves of my life. James M. Barrie said it perfectly; “God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December.” I still remember my first love...Ah! The sweetness of young love! We were in Grade 1, and on Valentine’s Day he presented me with the most wonderful handmade gift, a stuffed heart. It was made of flannel and had white lace around the outer edges. It looked like it was something he made, with hot glue holding it together, although I am sure he must

Mini Paper Pieced Egg

 Mini Paper Pieced Egg There is always time for a last minute gift, and you can whip this sweet egg up in no time!
