Scrappy Mini Quilt

Project by Angela Harkness

I have made this mini quilt using the Search Press book “Twenty to Stitch: mini quilt blocks” by Carolyn Forster. It is one from the ‘Twenty to stitch’ series of books which I really like and retails at £4.99. I chose to use this book as inspiration for making a project using leftovers from a fat quarter pack of Craft Cotton Company “Abbey” fabrics as I think it is a lovely fabric range, and I wanted to utilise the leftovers and just to show what can be made with scraps and some added blender fabrics. I used my leftovers from the Abbey fat quarter bag project I did before Christmas and some blue blenders and basic white cotton and managed to get 16 mini quilt blocks.

Here are a few of my scrappy mini blocks:

The book is full of different patchwork blocks, perfect for any project. It includes handy piecing instructions and colour variations for each block. There is also a little reference section on either making the mini blocks into coasters or making a quilt.. To find out more about the book visit

The little book is a great one to have on your shelf to dip into and get using up some of those scrappy leftovers!
