Make a Mini Periwinkle Quilt with this Free Step by Step Tutorial! Featuring Rebecca Bryan!

Hi everyone! I’m Rebecca Bryan, of Bryan House Quilts, and author of Modern Rainbow: 14 Imaginative Quilts that Play with Color (Stash Books, 2015). I’ve been quilting from a fairly young age having grown up around quilting. I’ve always been artistically inclined, and quilting has been a constant way for me to keep creating and discovering.

Today, I’m showing you my mini or table topper version of the Mini Wacky Web/Mini Periwinkle. Some of my favorite quilt designs center around a simple, geometric block. Which is why I chose to use Jenny’s lovely Mini Wacky Web Tutorial. The Mini Wacky Web is perfect for me!

Ready? Quack! Let’s go. ๐Ÿ™‚

Make Quilting Easier with the Sizzix Fabi Machine! Easy Periwinkle Quilt Tutorial

For my cutting, I used my Sizzix Fabiย and Mini Wacky Web Die to cut up my Cotton Couture charm pack. You could also use the Mini Wacky Web Template (Jenny shows you how in the original YouTube tutorial).

Here’s a glimpse of my process. I wanted to choose my colors fairly randomly (but let’s face it, I still like to choose favorites) so I used a ceramic fruit basket to toss the colors about. I made all my blocks just as Jenny instructs. To make a table topper, I decided to make 16 blocks.

At this point, I was loving my blocks. But to make each block pop, I decided to add 1” turquoise sashings and borders.

The unfinished Mini Wacky Web block measures just around 6”. So I cut 2 strips of 1 1/2” widths of fabric from my turquoise yardage. Then I subcut 12 rectangles 1 1/2” x 6”. After I decided on my block layout, I added a 1 1/2” x 6” strip to the right side of 12 blocks. And then sewed the blocks into rows.

Then I added 1 1/2” x 25 1/2” sashing strips between the rows and sewed the rows together.

To finish off the quilt top, I added 1 1/2” x 26 1/2” borders to each side.

Instead of machine quilting this table topper, I couldn’t resist hand quilting with black perle #8 thread. I love hand quilting, especially small projects. ๐Ÿ™‚
