Mini Quilts and a Quilted Pillow
|My Pet Hamster mini quilt 24″ x 26″|
I have been feeling a little stressed lately. But sewing helps!
Even just ironing fabric helps.
My thoughts are all over the place.
I’m all over the place.
And this post is really all over the place.
These two mini quilts have been on my mental bucket list for quite a while now. So after finishing the Panda Please quilt I shared on Friday, I cut into those new fabrics I recently purchased and made up the Raccoon mini quilt shown below.
And the next day I made the My Pet Hamster mini quilt shown above.

It felt great to use some of those new prints before they settled into my stash for long. And I paired them up with some solids for the white and black and then the grey Tic-Tac-Toe from the Hopscotch collection by Jamie Fingal for RJR Fabrics was used for the background.
I have also been working on a new pattern called Kitten Kaboodle. The pattern calls for 6 kitten blocks, but I only wanted to make one kitten and then turned him into a quilted pillow.

I found a zipper to match and made a hidden zipper closure.
Unlike when I bind a quilt, for this quilted pillow I sewed the binding to the front and then top stitched to finish from the back.
Here is how the Kitten Kaboodle quilt pattern is laid out.

I reached out to a few pattern testers for this one and Susie of Susie’s Sunroom obliged. Please click here to see her mini Kitten Kaboodle quilt top!
