Fun-Size Quilts BLOG HOP!

Hey there, thanks for stopping by on the blog hop!

For the longest time I couldn't understand why people would make mini quilts. The idea just baffled me. And then I got the opportunity to design on for this book and I totally get it now. They are so fun, quick and easy and the design options are endless!


I am so fortunate to be among some of my favorite designers in this book. 


My mini- "Skyline" -features fabrics from my stash as well as several prints from my Technicolor fabric collection for Michael Miller Fabrics.

Do you want to win an e-version of this fun book for your self? All you have to do is visit the Martingale blog and then hop along to the rest of the designers on the blog hop to have a look at their quilts (you can enter to win an ebook on each of their blogs). Then come on back here and leave a comment telling me which is your favorite (it doesn't have to be mine!)

It could be-

"Hedgehog Heyday" from Cheri Leffler

or "My Little Garden" by Jackie White

or "Fox in a Box" by Jeni Baker 

or any of the others- there's 19 different fun-size quilts!

Can't wait to see which one you choose! Contest will run through July 30th. 

HAPPY SEWING!

I have to say that all the mini quilts are wonderful. I think the hedgehog is my favorite, but I'm excited about making all of them.

Beth said...

I think my favorite is the elongated triangles, but there are several good ones.

jane said...

There's such a great variety of styles! I really like Elongated Triangles.

I love the hedgehog, but would love to make the patchwork one from JayBird Quilts, all those, teeny, tiny, bitty pieces..... What fun....

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I love them all, but I have never made a hedgehog - how cute.

Pauline Perry said...

My favourite - it has been hard to choose there are 5 I love - I am mad about pinwheels right now so I guess Sunshine would be my #1 favourite - also love the hedgehog.

Carol said...

My favourite is the 'To-Do List' quilt.

Vicki in MN said...

I love several of them so I will just say Quiltalicious for now.

Lisa Marie said...

I'd like to make a bunch of these quilts! I'd start with the one with the improv triangles because it is different than anything I have done before.

Sandra said...

That would be really hard to pick just one when I really fell in love with all of them. Thank you for giving me the chance to win a copy of Fun Size Quilts. I know that I will enjoy this book so much.

I like the sunshine quilt.

Lavonne Hansen said...

Hedgehog hayday - for my grandson for next to the gerbil cage.

G&G said...

I love your skyline mini !

Anita said...

My favorite is the Stalagstripes. Thanks for the giveaway!

Kathy E. said...

Although I love your mini quilt, my favorite is Heather Valentine's with the applique flowers. I want to make one just like it!

Marguerite said...

Hedgehog Heyday is catching my attention. But I do have to say that when I saw your quilt, I immediately thought of skyscrapers. And then, you called it a skyline. I guess I'm not totally lacking in are perspectives.

Marianne said...

They are all good. I'd like to make My Little Garden first though.

Louise said...

I like Fox in the Box, and I want to make yours, too. I have several vertical strip quilts pinned on Pinterest: that type of design always calls me. It never occurred to me to do one as a mini! I think it will work well, though, because then you can see the whole design as a complete piece, rather than rumpled and folded the way my bed quilts always end up.

Cecilia said...

I like the To Do List quilt. It's sew cute. Thanks for the giveaway.

Anne D said...

I love them all but would make fox in a box first. Actually would make 2 as I have twin nieces.

KittyAnnArt said...

I adore yours Emily!! Simple and colorful, just my style! This is a fun hop! >^,,^<

MoeWest said...

There are so many great ones! I think I would start with those cute hedgehogs.

Havplenty said...

All of the minis are great. I too had to get why quilters made minis. They are fun sample size quilts.

Faves: Fox in a Box, To Do List, Quiltalicious, White Stars, etc....

Miggsie said...

I love your Skyline mini, and the adorable foxes!

Kate in Iowa said...

I love your Skyline! I want to make it! It's the best of the lot. Congratulations on designing such a beautiful fun-size quilt.

jillnjosh said...

I don't have a favorite. There are too many inspiring quilts to choose just one.

suzanprincess said...

There are at least six quilts in this book I'd like to make for myself, and others for friends. I think I'd start with white stars; I don't think I'd like it full size, but it looks so cute as a mini!

Jayne said...

I love all of them, but I think “Quiltalicious” is such a bright, fun Mini!

terrieannie said...

The first two I would make are the "To Do List" for my sewing room, and Jeni Baker's foxes for my son.

Coser Tejer Crear said...

I like Perhaps the most!

Wendy said...

I love Sunshine, though i love those hedgehogs too!

Gill said...

I like Thomas's Perhaps

Monica said...

Skyline really is my favorite! I love how simple and geometric it is :) thanks for the chance to win!

Jacklynn said...

I can see making any one of these quilts, but I would start with Julie Herman's White Star mini, thinking of using Christmas prints in the background and my white has white snowflakes on it. Thanks for the give away!

Susan said...

It's a toss up between the White Stars, the Fox in a Box, and the Woven Stars.

Donna W said...

I love pinwheels, so I will have to go with Sunshine by Kimberly Jolly.

GrannyTo8Boys said...

I like to make mug rugs. I have never made a mini quilt but am absolutely going to make the hedgehog quilt.

Lee Ann L. said...

I'm liking the “Four-Patch Shift” by Jilie Herman and “Stalagstripes” by Pippa Eccles Armbrester along with your Skyline quilt. (I can never choose just one!)

Thank you for a chance to win!

Katie said...

There are so many I've seen from this book that I just love. I am torn between three of them however in trying to choose a favorite. Those are My Little Garden, White Stars, and Sunshine.

Your quilt would look great in a child's room! I am drawn to Melissa's zig zag quilt.

jellybean said...

Hedgehog fan all the way Sorry

Marcia B said...

"Sunshine" is calling my name since it reminds me of my family reunions from when I was a young girl. My two cousins would play their accordions while the rest of the family members sang "You are my sunshine...."

quilt for fun said...

Love all these mini quilts, but the one I want to make first is Sunshine.

Deb said...

I like yours, but the hedgehogs and sew sew sew are my favorites.

Jeannine said...

I like most of them... think that yours & "Perhaps" are my favorites

Emily Reznechek said...

I like the sunshine mini!

Mary said...

I am leaning towards "perhaps" but think all of the quilts would be fun to try.

Karen said...

Maybe my favorite is the elongated triangles. It's really hard to choose one, and I keep changing my mind!

jrt14 said...

My favorite pattern is White Stars. Thank you for a chance to win.

Weatherbee ;) said...

I think your quilt is great! I also love the Fox in a Box, My little Garden, and White Stars!

Jen Beatty said...

I'm a mini kick, great time for this book!

Mary Terry said...

The whimsy of the hedgehogs is terrific, but Fox in a Box is calling my name! Great job everyone!

Mary Terry said...

The whimsy of Fox in a Box is calling my name!
