How to: Simple Spring Mini Quilt - Sunday Stitches

Hey there! So, I guess this week I am feeling extra generous! I shared a Sunday Stitches post a little early this week, but, since yesterday was National Quilting Day and the first day of Spring was on Friday I felt cheery and wanted to share another fun tutorial.

Before I get started I just have to say, thank you so much to everyone that shares these tutorials, seeing that you all like them enough to share them makes my heart so happy!

This mini quilt is the perfect quick project to add a little bit of spring color to your house. I love to use mini quilts as table toppers, or hang them in my sewing room.

This little quilt will finish at 15" square.
(The outer pink border is the binding.)



Bust out your stash, or head to the local quilt shop and pick up a few fun, bright fabrics and you'll have this mini quilt complete in no time.
