Lil' Red and a Fat Quarter Friendly Mini Quilt by Sandee Pacific

Posted on January 18 2016


My fat quarter bundle of Lil Red from Loulou’s Fabric Shop arrived in mid December and between all the hustle and bustle of Christmas and New Years it took me a while to dig into it.

I really wanted to showcase how adorable this fabric is so I decided on bigger blocks. My mini quilt measures at 30x30. The quilt consists of 16, 7 1/2 inch blocks. 6 square in square blocks, 6 hourglass blocks and four squares in the middle. I finished it with a 2 inch border all around with fussy cut 2 inch corner squares.


I had intended to quilt it but in the end I tied it, because let's face it that's what Lil Red's Granny would've done!

I thought it would be fun to do a picture tutorial of my method for creating these blocks, let's get started!

Square in Square block - this is one of my favorites and it's so easy.

(all seams are sewn at 1/4" and pressed to the side)


Hourglass Block

 Are you ready for more cuteness overload? There's a panel in the fat quarter bundle of Lil Red from Loulou’s Fabric Shop. It includes a Lil Red doll, skirt, cape, mini quilt, pillow and funny guy named Mr. Big!
