Chandelier Quilt

The Chandelier Quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Do you remember discovering precuts for the very first time? Vanessa Goertzen sure does! 

It was 2010, and Vanessa had just learned that her new baby was going to be a girl. On the way home from the ultrasound, she stopped at a fabric shop to pick up something pink.

There, she laid eyes on a stack of precut 5 inch charms, and a creative fire was lit! (12 years later, Vanessa designs incredible precut patterns for her very own Lella Boutique!)  

This week, Jenny is stitching up one of Vanessa’s prettiest patterns. Chandelier is a quick and easy charm pack quilt that is made extraordinary with an on-point layout.

Mini Quilts!

I have recently joined a few of the mini quilt swaps that are going on around the internet. It has been really fun to make mini quilts. Its totally new to me as I have always made larger quilts, or table runners. But, mini quilts are so small that you can really be creative and try out all kinds of new things. You can do things that seemed hard or too time consuming. I have experimented with embroidery, new blocks (Dresden plate!), free motion quilting, and using scraps in a creative way.  It is something I highly recommend! So, enjoy these pics of a few of my mini quilts!

My first Mini Quilt. I adapted a pattern for a pillow from a magazine! Its made with Anna Maria Horner’s Good Folks Fabric and measures 13 X 20. I did some free motion quilting on the squares then finished off the bottom of the quilt with an all over pattern called “just roses”. I love this one!

This was my first attempt at a Dresden plate! Of course, I used the nifty Dresden plate ruler! It is made using a Tranquility Charm pack and some solid yardage from my stash. It is quilted in an allover pattern we have here at the shop called “flower”. It measures approx. 25 X 20

This is my most recent mini quilt! It was made for Doll Quilt Swap 7. (Such a great swap group!) I used Riley Blake Fabric and after sewing a large four patch for my background, I appliqued the rings in a large circle using a blanket stitch. It is machine quilted using an allover pattern called “jills bubbles” It is adorable! It measures 24 X 25.

Making mini quilts is so  much fun…and you can try all kinds of quilting challenges out on a small scale! So, get brave and try something new! Then show us a pic in our forums!

Happy Quilting!
