This Raccoon Mini quilt was a really fun make! I love the rainbow feel of this wee quilt. It’s refreshing for me to be able to dig into those solids every now and again.
These are not my first sneaky raccoons…..
There was an entire quilt full here…..
And some of those raccoons, shared in that post, were half sized blocks.
The babies were especially cute!
I had some leftover fabric from making the backing for my original Dog Gone Cute quilt that I used to piece the backing for this mini. It’s Windy Day in Aqua from the Backyard Baby collection by Patty Sloniger for Michael Miller Fabrics. I love the soft blues and greens. And the pop of contrasting orange used to make those wee birds.
I added corner tabs for hanging this mini. All you need to do is drill a hole in the center of a yard stick after cutting it to the correct length. Then you can hang this mini invisibly. I think it would look adorable in a nursery!
You can find the Raccoon Block pattern here in my shop.
The block pattern includes instructions for both the full size and half size blocks. And the instructions for turning the full size blocks into a mini quilt can be found here.

The mini is so cute and I like the idea of a ruler with a hole drilled into it for the hanging.
Perfect for a baby's room. Bright colours, love them.

I do love your racoons (not an animal we have here in NZ) but they look like such bandits LOL! Awesome work, I love that backing fabric.
So cute, love the solids! Great tip about the yardstick, I'm gonna try that!
