We are thrilled to partner with Make Modern magazine for a unique challenge to kick off Summer!
We don’t know about you, but we love the adorable mini quilt trend! We’re busy moms with a huge sewing wish list. And while, we would love to churn out a bunch of big bed quilts, we simply don’t have the time in this busy season of our lives to get to all that we want to do. Clothes for the kids tend to win out over other sewing projects. And dang, we sure have fun stitching for our littles. This is where mini quilts fit in perfectly. We can try out a technique, play with some inspiring fabrics, and complete a project without adding to our dreaded half-finished sewing pile. What could be better than mini quilts? How about mini mini quilts?!
Make Modern magazine is hosting a challenge honoring these itty bitty works of stitched art & we would love for you to join in!
It’s simple to play along:
1. Make a mini mini quilt (no larger than 6″ square)
2. Share a photo of your finished quilt on Instagram with the hashtag #MMminimini and tag @makemodernmagazine
3. Repeat from step 1 as many times as you’d like before June 20th.
Did we mention there would be PRIZES?! Phat Quarters is a sponsor! You could win from over 30 prizes worth over $1000 including fabric (yay fabric!), patterns, kits, sewing notions, gift certificates, & more!
This is open to all International sewists! Feel free to enter multiple mini mini quilts, but please just share one photo per quilt (be sure to use the #MMminimini hashtag & also tag @makemodernmagazine). The challenge is open from May 20th til June 20th, 2016. The lucky winners will be announced in the Make Modern newsletter on July 8th.
Make Modern has issued this very important warning:
“Making mini mini quilts may be highly addictive and may cause you to neglect every other WIP, partners, children, pets and significant others that require feeding, and your housework! Given that you are probably looking for reasons to neglect the latter, go forth and create!”
We can’t wait to get started on our own mini mini quilt creations! Be sure to follow us on Instagram as we’ll be sharing some mini mini quilts that shine as well as our own! There’s a ton of inspiration in the latest issue of Make Modern, which is available today!
