Whip Up Mini Quilts

Today’s the day that I’m part of the Whip Up Mini Quilt book blog tour! Hurray!

Cover

It’s such a great book. It starts with a very thorough run down of quilting – how to and loads of tips and tricks. All the info you need in one place. Then you get to the quilts… oh the mini quilts!

Mini1

Mini

Mini3

That last one there was made by Liz, a member of my guild, the LAMQG. In an aligning of the mini quilt stars, we had a mini quilt swap at our meeting last night.

Mini quilts are so wonderful because you can try something new or whimsical or out of your comfort zone, on a small scale.  You can take a risk or two that you wouldn’t dare take on a huge project that takes you ages to make.

Check out some of the great quilts from last night with their happy recipients…

Kelly Terri Jamie
Quilts made by Latifah,                 Emily,                                                                  and Lori

That last one deserves a zoom in…

On the To Do list?

“Buy more fabric” – so clever!

Whip Up Mini Quilts divides the many included patterns up into different categories.

I think the one I made fits nicely into…Geometric!

Right?

My Mini Quilt

Mini quilts are great because you don’t have to concern yourself with the functionality of making a quilt – you’re just having fun with an artistic expression.  The book  captures that so wonderfully, providing such a great mix of practical information and pure inspiration.

    What a fantastic book! You know I had seen it somewhere, it escapes me now, but I was very intrigued by the whole concept. It looks like a great way to get inspired to make smaller quilts for that quick gratification. I think that is what I like best about the book. But I also like the fact that it is spiral bound so it lays flat. Congrats on the shout out in the back!

  • Jennifer

    I love mini quilts because, like you said, they are prime for experimentation. Right now I’m interested in super super mini quilts. My friend and I just made one together that was 4.5×4.5″. I’d like to continue experimenting in tiny sizes…

  • Stella

    June 8, 2010 at 4:33 am |

    I love the geometric quilt!

  • Tricia

    June 8, 2010 at 4:35 am |

    Mini quilts are ones that have a better chance of being completed! I also love decorating with them; they can warm up smaller places. Good for you for being included in the book! Love the pictures from your mini quilt swap. Thanks for sharing!!

  • Bellgirl

    June 8, 2010 at 4:42 am |

    What’s great about the mini-quilts book is that a new quilter like me can learn a host of quilting techniques through making small-scale projects, and they look great displayed as a group. I’ve drooled over it at the Melbourne Stitches and Craft Show!

  • Debbie - Esch House Quilts

    June 8, 2010 at 4:50 am |

    My brain seems to think in 80″ square quilts. I NEED this book to shrink in down some! Mini quilts look like a lot of fun.

  • Melissa H.

    June 8, 2010 at 4:56 am |

    I’ve never done a mini quilt before, but you’re right, it would be great to try out new patterns and techniques without committing to a huge quilt. Looks like a great book!

  • Michelle kumar

    June 8, 2010 at 5:07 am |

    That’s a great surprise to see your blog in print, congrats!

    Thus is defnitely being added to my growing list of books I need!

  • Tara

    June 8, 2010 at 5:09 am |

    what’s great about mini quilts is that they’re quick (well, sometimes) and always adorable!

  • Kristy

    June 8, 2010 at 5:24 am |

    My favourite thing is exactly what you were saying about being able to try out new things. And I love the quilts for the swap, they are great!

  • Melissa R.

    June 8, 2010 at 5:25 am |

    I think my favorite thing about mini quilts is the low risk-factor with new techniques. And also that they are fairly easy to complete.
    Everyone’s quilts were so creative and fun last night! :)

  • Tong

    June 8, 2010 at 5:34 am |

    Mini quilts are so versatile, and so quick to whip up, not to mention that you can try new and fun designs without having to commit too much time. Thanks for the chance!

  • amanda

    June 8, 2010 at 5:41 am |

    That looks like an amazing book! I hadn’t seen photos of the inside before. My favorite thing about mini quilts is that they’re a quick way to spruce up a wall space. I have yet to actually do so myself, though!

  • Katie

    June 8, 2010 at 5:41 am |

    I like that they’re perfect for baby dolls!

  • kate C.

    June 8, 2010 at 6:00 am |

    The thing I like most about mini-quilts is that I can (usually) finish one without getting distracted by another project or just life in general! (So far large quilts have taken me years and years to finish… or still aren’t finished.)

  • Maggie

    June 8, 2010 at 6:04 am |

    My favorite thing about mini quilts is that I don’t have the stamina for a big quilt, so it is a great, fast project. I also love that you can get super creative.

  • kaelin

    June 8, 2010 at 6:08 am |

    bravo on the mention in her book! how exciting is that?! my favorite thing about mini quilts is that you can easily use them to decorate your walls instead of framed pictures. everyone has pictures on their walls, but how many people have awesome mini quilts to decorate with? not many. :)

  • Jacque

    June 8, 2010 at 6:10 am |

    I have only ventured into one mini quilt.. am anxious to try more and this book is the inspiration needed.

    Thanks for an opportunity to win.

    This looks awesome and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy….via this giveaway or some other method (library perhaps?). Thanks for the chance to win :)

  • Lucette

    June 8, 2010 at 6:20 am |

    The little quilts you featured are whimsical and playfull and this really appeals to me. Thanks for this giveaway of a fantastic book.

  • Ellen Ban

    June 8, 2010 at 6:23 am |

    Mini quilts are great because….they get finished!!!

  • Julie W.

    June 8, 2010 at 6:30 am |

    Beautiful quilts!! I’ve never made mini quilts, but will have to give it a try one of these days. I’d like to learn to stipple, so this would be a great way to learn!

  • Chandra

    June 8, 2010 at 6:50 am |

    I’ve never made a mini quilt but they look like fun! And I love that they are not a huge commitment either. :)

  • Simone

    June 8, 2010 at 6:58 am |

    I love mini quilts for practicing new technigues for quilt tops and that I can do my own machine quilting on them. My daughter loves them for her dolls!

  • Jeni

    June 8, 2010 at 7:02 am |

    Ooo, I like this. Mini quilts are so fun bc you can try out a new pattern without over-committing!

  • Virginia

    June 8, 2010 at 7:02 am |

    I love the fact that mini quilts don’t take too much fabric, and that they’re a great way for a beginner like me to learn some more techniques without getting overwhelmed by the size!

  • Sharon

    June 8, 2010 at 7:06 am |

    I’ve never made any sort of quilt, but my favorite cousin is having a baby girl this summer. I need to make her something special (eventually), and mini quilts will help me learn the methods without the resource commitment of a full-sized project.

  • Teresa

    June 8, 2010 at 7:30 am |

    I can’t believe I nearlly missed the bit about winning a copy of this book. I was so busy gazing at the sweet little quilts in the photos. What I love about mini quilts because they are a great way to practice new methods and designs. I’d love to make one and alwasys have little designs in my head that never make it out!

    what a lovely book! i love mini’s because I can start and finish in one day! sometimes you need that fix!

  • Audrie

    June 8, 2010 at 7:42 am |

    Awesome book! That To-Do list one is just hilarious!!

    Minis are great because you can finish them super quick and they can be hung up to be enjoyed instead of folded and squirreled away like most quilts.

  • Necia

    June 8, 2010 at 7:44 am |

    Mini quilts to me would probably be great for me, because Ive yet to quilt a top. For some reason I am TOTALLY OVERWHELMED with the idea of possibly ruining a totally perfect top that Ive pieced together, and by now I have quite a few waiting to be quilted. This book definitely appears to be one I should check out.

  • Megan

    June 8, 2010 at 7:49 am |

    What a great little book! I’ve been thinking about doing some mini-quilts lately for just those reasons you mention: you can try out new techniques and ideas without the major commitment of a full-size quilt. Plus, it’s a great way to use up scraps (not that I have any of those lying around).

  • Audrey

    June 8, 2010 at 8:14 am |

    This looks like a really neat book, and congratulations on having you blog lilsted! That is really neat.

  • Lindsay

    June 8, 2010 at 8:34 am |

    I love that you can try different quilting techniques that you wouldn’t on a big project and you still have a cute finished project!
    Fun book!

  • Rita

    June 8, 2010 at 8:37 am |

    I love the limitless possibilities in a limited space.

  • Ginger

    June 8, 2010 at 8:39 am |

    I love mini quilts because I think it is fun to make things on a small scale. Plus, since I don’t make true miniatures, I often finish them more quickly than a larger quilt.

  • Alisa

    June 8, 2010 at 8:54 am |

    Mini quilts gives you the opportunity to try a few new blocks or styles without having to complete anything in large numbers. Gives me the motivation to start something new and try new fabrics together. :)

  • Jo Ann

    June 8, 2010 at 9:02 am |

    These mini quilts are great; I’d love to win this one

    I love mini quilts because they are quick start-to-finish projects and you can more easily experiment with new techniques, ideas, and fabrics. Thanks for hosting this great giveaway!

  • Wendy D. P.

    June 8, 2010 at 9:20 am |

    So fun! I love mini quilts because of the instant gratification – so quick and fun, so there’s no time to get bogged down in certain steps!

  • DianeY

    June 8, 2010 at 9:27 am |

    I’ve never made a mini-quilt, but I can see that they would be a great way to experiment. Love the quilting you did on yours!

  • Lisa M./New England

    June 8, 2010 at 9:37 am |

    Mini quilts are fascinating! And, you can finish them! I just picked up some patterns for 18″ cuties at a sewing show. Waiting until I finish some much larger UFO’s before I start. And so it goes….

  • rosamaria

    June 8, 2010 at 9:37 am |

    mini quilts are so great because you can make them so fast! and always looks amazing on any wall!
    love your geometric mini quilt!
    many thanks for the chance, the book looks amazing!

  • Andy

    June 8, 2010 at 9:38 am |

    Things in miniature = adorable!

    They can also be an opportunity to use designs that just don’t translate/read well in large scale.

  • Teresa p

    June 8, 2010 at 9:43 am |

    My favorite thing is that they are little works of art. I have Liz’s mini quilt she made for the Valentine’s swap pinned to my design wall. It’s super inspiring. I’m bummed I missed the meeting last night, but I was so exhausted from the trip back from Squam. It looks like it was fun!

  • Asiyah

    June 8, 2010 at 9:53 am |

    Oooh, please do enter me. I would love to have that book.

    BTW…what does that little post it on the To Do List quilt say? I can’t zoom in on it since your Flickr page is private.

    All in all, great quilts. Thanks for sharing and for the giveaway!

  • Amy

    June 8, 2010 at 9:54 am |

    It looks like a great book! I am loving mini quilts at the moment.

  • bruinbr

    June 8, 2010 at 9:55 am |

    This book looks fantastic! I love mini quilts because they seem a lot more approachable than the larger full sized versions. I’m relatively new to quilting and so mini quilts sound like the perfect starting point! THanks for the giveaway!

  • Anamaria

    June 8, 2010 at 10:02 am |

  • Melissa P

    June 8, 2010 at 10:17 am |

    My favorite part of mini quilts is that you can try new techniques on a small scale… plus they come together quickly, so you have almost instant gratification.

  • craftytammie

    June 8, 2010 at 10:20 am |

    I love matching doll and baby quilts for little girls, so sweet!

  • Lisabee

    June 8, 2010 at 10:24 am |

    What a cool-looking book! I’ve never made a mini-quilt because mostly I’ve made quilts as gifts (for babies, etc), but it looks like it would be really fun to try. I like the idea of being able to try new techniques without dedicating a TON of fabric and time to the project.

  • Mary on Lake Pulaski

    June 8, 2010 at 10:32 am |

    The thing I love about mini quilts is that I can have lots and lots and lots of them!!

  • Kate

    June 8, 2010 at 10:32 am |

    I love mini quilts because I can make them and they are always appreciated by the three-year-old in my house!

    Ooh, mini quilts are such fun! They’re quick to make, you can try new things, and if it doesn’t work out like you imagined it, you didn’t waste much time or fabric. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • ara jane

    June 8, 2010 at 10:36 am |

    honest to god, i wasn’t at all interested in mini quilts until i saw this post. that little to-do list has captured my heart and now i see the mini-quilt light.

  • Gale

    June 8, 2010 at 11:17 am |

    I love mini quilts because they are the most whimsical that I make and they go so quickly. I hand piece and hand quilt (starting to rethink that however) and would love this little book to give me some new, fresh, fast ideas!
    Thanks for this great giveaway!

    My favorite thing about mini quilts: the quick closure of a job well done! :)

  • Victoria

    June 8, 2010 at 11:37 am |

    Mini quilts just beg to be embellished! If I don’t like what I have made, the grand girlies make off with them for doll quilts. Those plastic babies will never be cold.

  • Kristina

    June 8, 2010 at 11:38 am |

    My favorite thing about mini quilts? I can quilt them myself! I’m still kinda new at this and I’m afraid to quilt my bigger quilt tops (and am a major slacker about sending them out).

    Thanks for the giveaway:)

  • Jen

    June 8, 2010 at 11:48 am |

    I love that you can create something so cute and fun with a small quilt. It is like the saying, “Good things come in small packages”

  • arlette

    June 8, 2010 at 12:49 pm |

    Oh my godness!!!!, I got a headache watching the book, it looks so so so cute!!!!!!!!, I’d love to have it, I’m sure it would be really helpful because I’m into miniquilts, they’re fast to make and you can go over and over again, you get fast results and being a small quilt looks lovely as well, I can’t get tired of making them!

  • Johanna

    June 8, 2010 at 12:53 pm |

    I love that I never have to wonder if my fabric will be enough for the quilt or if I have to spend hours online searching for the exact colour that I have been using and which seems to have magically disappeared…

  • Amber

    June 8, 2010 at 1:22 pm |

    I love mini quilts since they are so fast to bind :-) plus it’s fun to try out new ideas on a small scale!

  • Allison S.

    June 8, 2010 at 1:39 pm |

    I haven’t done a mini quilt (only have 2 completed quilts under my belt at this point) but I think the sense of accomplishment at finishing quickly would be fabulous!

  • Molly

    June 8, 2010 at 2:00 pm |

    I bet you could try out some nice new quilting ideas on such a small quilt!

  • Megan

    June 8, 2010 at 2:13 pm |

    Oh that book looks great!

  • Jen

    June 8, 2010 at 2:36 pm |

    What a lovely book! I have yet to make a mini quilt but really want to for the chance to try out new quilting (namely stippling). That seems like a great opportunity–to try new things without committing too much :)

  • Vicki

  • Morgan

    June 8, 2010 at 2:59 pm |

    My favorite thing is that they are so quick to make! It’s not a huge time commitment like full-size quilts are. You can test out new ideas and patterns really easily.
    Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    June 8, 2010 at 3:06 pm |

    Oh gosh, mini quilts are perfect because they are so cute for everything! You can plop them on a table, showcase them on a wall, put them on the couch. You can do so many decorative things with them, and they’re so easy to complete!

    I think mini quilts give you permission to not be perfect. That way you can try anything and it doesn’t matter if it works or not but if it does then you can go bigger.

  • Monika

  • Bridgid

    June 8, 2010 at 5:46 pm |

    Thanks for the great book review – definitely one to add to the library. My favourite thing about mini quilts would have to be that I can quilt them on my domestic sewing machine without feeling that I am wrestling an anaconda to get the whole thing through!

  • Krista

    June 8, 2010 at 5:49 pm |

    I love mini quilts because they come together so fast and you can really make the details special. They don’t get lost like they can in a larger quilt.

    Wonderful giveaway!

    It is so cool that your name is listed in the resources. Thank you for hosting this giveaway and providing the book review. I’ve considered making a mini-quilt yet somewhat fearful about it. If win this book, then should help me get moving on a project.

  • Maeve

    June 8, 2010 at 6:11 pm |

    This book looks like so much fun and inspiration! I like mini quilts because it is so easy to just improvise and play with fabrics to come up with a quick design. You can finish a “project” in little time and have something really fun as a result! I’d love to win this book.

  • katielea

    June 8, 2010 at 6:49 pm |

    While I haven’t yet made a mini quilt, I love that they allow such freedom for creativity & experimentation without the commitment of a larger sized quilt.

  • Jackie H

    June 8, 2010 at 7:03 pm |

    With 3 kids 5 and under, my fave thing about mini-quilts is that I can usually finish it in 2-3 nights (since I can only sew at night after everyone is asleep!) LOL!

  • Heather

    June 8, 2010 at 7:10 pm |

    Ohh looks like a great book. Thanks for the chance to win. I think mini quilts are great because I have a chance of actually finishing them! With a one year old I don’t seem to be able to get long term projects done :)

    I like mini quilts because you can utilize those last tiny scraps of your favorite fabrics and get a little more use from them. I can’t stand to throw away even tiny bits of my precious hoarded fabrics!

    I have not made a mini quilt yet (I’m just a beginner!) but I have already taken requests from some of my neighbors’ girls. I don’t feel quite so intimidated by something smaller!

    I love mini quilts because of the mini quilt swaps I do with Flickr!
    I have ‘met’ a lot of nice people all over the world, and I have improved my technique A LOT ! (it is super motivating to quilt for others)
    These mini quilts are hanged on my walls, and I have place quilts too!

    well…i’d say the favorite thing is they’re mini!!! but of course i also love that they pack a punch in tiny form–and mini can be teensy weensy mini or a lot bigger–what fun. and what fun is that book? how cool it’s already spiral bound–i’m always having dear hubby take my quilt books in to be bound for ease. have a great day and thanks for the chance at the giveaway!

    Instant gratification! I love that I can sit down during my boys’ naptime and have a finished quilt by the time they’re up :D

    The mini quilts are so impressive (in a small form). Quicker to make and so easy for people to use/display as they are smaller

    What a nice way to potentially used up some scraps and end up with something small and wonderful :)

    My favorite thing about mini quilts is that I don’t get overwhelmed and feel like I’ll never finish! And I can purchase the beautiful fabric I love in small amounts – without breaking the grocery budget!

    oooh, I just love mini-quilts. I think my fav part is the sharing. I rarely keep a mini – they are always for gifting or swapping. Plus, I do love a good binding job and it’s so easy on a mini to keep it all straight, flat and perfectly perfect (the way I like ‘em). Thanks for the book giveaway and nice review!

    You know, I’ve never made one but would love to make my first to give to my newborn niece!
