Mini Quilted Trio

I've been keeping this under wraps for a little bit of the many little secret things I've mentioned... and I'm so happy that I get to share it with you now!

I have a pattern in the Summer 2012 issue of Stitch Craft Create magazine!! You may remember that I shared this little sneak peak a couple of months ago...

My pattern in the Mini Quilted Trio, a series of three mini quilts that each use the same number of pieces and techniques to form three different traditional quilt blocks framed with a log-cabin style border.

These three mini quilts include instructions for making the traditional Snowball, Shoo Fly, and Friendship Star blocks. I made these minis using Kate Spain's Terrain and white Kona, and each mini finishes at 12" square. But wait (!!!) maybe they don't have to be displayed in a mini quilt gallery... maybe there are other options...

The awesome crew over at SCC (and trust me, they're a pretty rad bunch) decided to showcase the minis in a few different ways - placemats anyone? Pretty chair covers? The minis are actually featured throughout the magazine in a variety of different settings and uses.

But enough about me, because the magazine itself and the projects in it are all pretty and oh so delightful! And yes, I would say that even if I wasn't in it! When the magazines arrived at my house I was on the phone with my mum and just kept exclaiming how pretty the whole magazine was. I don't think my photographs do it justice at all. There are some really fun projects that I will definitely be trying out - yarn dying? I can do that! - and I wish that I had the time to complete them all because I really think they all look awesome. See that pillow up there? It's designed by none other than the super-talented Corey of Little Miss Shabby - if you haven't visited her blog, which I'm sure a lot of you have, I'm sure you've seen her beautiful quilts and amazing Ringo Pie blocks all over the interwebs.

The magazine will be hitting the newsstands on May 8th, but I just couldn't wait to share it with y'all (dudes, I've already been sitting on this for a few days). I hope that you take the chance to peruse the magazine and find it as pretty and delightful as I do. And if by chance you decide to make some minis using my pattern, I hope that you'll share them with me either via email or in my Flickr group.

Now, let's see, do I have any neutral yarn hanging around that I could try dying? Hmmmm...


  1. What a sweet project, Kaye! I'll have to see if I can get my hands on a copy of this magazine.

  2. Congrats, Kaye!! Love your minis and all the clever possibilities for them! The styling of the article complements your beauties perfectly. Can't wait to get my hands on the mag. Thanks so much for using Terrain!! xxoo

  3. Hey, way to go!! Congratulations Kaye. You're right, the styling shots are gorgeous and your minis so pretty. I've never heard of this mag, but I'll keep a look out. Who publishes it?

  4. SOOO pretty, Kaye! I love the way they styled them! Hopefully I can find this mag locally. :)

  5. Congrats for being in the magazine! Your trio is adorable.

  6. Congratulations Kaye! They are all so pretty, and what a wonderful idea to show three different ways of putting them togheter - too clever. I think they look lovely on the wall.

  7. I passed this up the other day - not knowing you had a project in there - I will now promptly go back to get a copy! Congrats Kaye! How fun and very cute!
