Nine Patch Mini Quilt Tutorial

  I am excited to be a part of Melissa’s Simply Charmed Blog Hop today.  

In thinking about what I would like to make with a Charm Pack, I decided to replicate this little mini-quilt/table-topper that I made last fall. I loved having a little zing of color on my normally ‘blah’ boring kitchen table.

Thanks to the generosity of the Fat Quarter Shop I was able to make a festive Valentines mini to festoon my kitchen table for February. (Try saying that 5 times fast.)  And today I’ll share how I did it. Pretty simple – definitely not rocket science, but it’s always nice when someone else does the figuring, right?
In addition to the Charm Pack I used ¼ yard of sashing fabric, ¼ yard for binding and 2/3 yard for backing. You will only need 21 squares for the pieced blocks, which means a couple of things: 1) you could make another set of blocks=another mini quilt for a friend or 2) you could use your left over squares to piece a back or as a scrappy binding. So many options.

1. Take 21 of your 5″ charm squares and cut them into quarters = (4) 2½” squares.

 2. Mix-up the 2½” squares and lay them out into 9 sets of 9 squares.  Sew each set of squares into 3 rows of 3 squares each using a scant ¼” seam allowance.

 3. Press the seams toward the outside on the top and bottom row. Press the seams toward the inside square on the middle row. This will help in matching up all those little square points.

 4.  Sew 9-patch rows together. Seams pressed to opposite sides will butt up against each other, matching the square points at the corners.

6. Press from the front.  Here is what the pressed back will look like.  Make 8 more blocks using the same method.

 7.  From sashing fabric cut 5 strips 1¾” wide x the width of the fabric. From one of those strips, sub cut into (6) 1¾” x 6½” pieces.  Sew strips between the 3 sets of 3 nine-patch blocks.  Press seams toward the sashing strips.

 8.  From 2 of the remaining sashing strips carefully cut (2) 1¾” x 21″ sashing strips. (If you cut carefully, you should be able to get (2) 21″ strips out of a 1¾” x width-of-fabric strip.)  Cutting the sashing to the correct size, rather than just sewing it on and trimming the end, will help your mini quilt stay square. Pin the strips to the the sets of 3 blocks.  Find the center of your strip (10½”) and the center of your set of blocks. Pin at the center point and then pin at either end of the strip/set of blocks.  Then evenly space the rest of the pins along the edge to be sewn. (If you need help visualizing this technique, go here and scroll down to the part about pinning.)

 9. Sew sashing strips as shown at the top and bottom and between the three rows.  Press toward the sashing.

10. From your remaining sashing strips cut (2) 1¾” x 23½” strips for the final borders on the quilt. Use the same method as above for pinning on the strips before sewing to help keep your quilt square.  Sew using ¼” seam allowance. Press seams toward the sashing strips

11.  After carefully pressing quilt top and backing fabric (use at least a 25″ square piece of backing”) pin-baste the back, batting, and quilt top together.  (For more on quilt basting go here.)

12.  I chose to machine quilt my mini and I used this binding method.

And there you have a quick little mini.  I love how the simplicity of this quilt shows off the fabrics. It’s a quick project and using a charm pack is a simple way to get a variety of prints. 
It would be very simple to make a larger version – 4 blocks by 4 blocks using a single Charm pack as well.  You would need 36 charms for 16 finished blocks, 5/8 yard sashing, 1/4 yard binding and a yard for backing.

    I love the &quot;Simply Charmed&quot; feature! It is so wonderful to see what can be made with a smaller amount of fabric. Thanks for the wonderful tutorial. Reese&#39;s Cup Eggs would have to be my favorite Valentine&#39;s treat. It is hard to improve on the original, but something about the eggs and the trees is just a notch above 🙂

    GREAT tutorial!! Such a cute mini!!<br /><br />My favorite Valentines treat (and don&#39;t laugh!) are Wendy&#39;s frosties with french fries. My hubby and I made this our V day tradition when we were poor starving college kids. It makes me smile.<br /><br />Conversation hearts are a close second, though… 🙂

    What a darling table topper! Brightens up the table for sure. Thanks so much for the great tutorial and the figures for making it larger. Would be cute in brights for summer or in autumn colors as well. Well my favorite candy is chocolate and if it&#39;s combined with carmel or peanut butter, all the better. hehe.<br /><br />Thank you and Burgundy Buttons for the great giveaway and a chance to

    Thanks for the fun tute. Valentines is fun because it brings red and pinks into the boring after Christmas blags.Unfortunately, almost any chocolate is my favorite, and pretty much any time. My palate is not discriminating at all. I try to enjoy the holiday and I love the excitement in the air, I just try to ignore the food clues.

    What a cute little table topper! I love it.

I&#39;m just wondering if you could explain

    Cute little table topper! <br />My favorite valentine&#39;s candy in a box of chocolates is the square shaped caramel candies or the ones with toasted coconut in them. YUM! But if I don&#39;t get a box of chocolates for Valentine&#39;s Day, I would happily settle for some Dove chocolates with bits of almonds! 🙂

    Isn&#39;t it great how many wonderful things you can make with a simple nine patch? Thanks for a lovely idea! My favorite candy (any day, not just Feb. 14) would have to be high quality chocolate, say, Moonstruck. Just delectable!

    Lovely quilt. We don&#39;t celebrate Valentine&#39;s day in our house so I don&#39;t have any favourite candy. Although I do love chocolate!

    This is a great tutorial. You could switch out the Valentine themed fabric, and replace it with another holiday too. If I had to pick just one favorite candy, it would have to be milk chocolate, and then either covered caramels or cherries.
