Big and Small Scattered Quilt

Do you like to make full-size quilts or minis? I like both and have to admit it can be a lot more fun making a mini to try out different fabrics.

Here is the original size of my Scattered quilt without a border and then the mini I showed the same quilt as a mini. Big difference in size!

What I like about miniatures is that you can put quite a few quilts up in the same amount of space that would only be able to show one regular-sized quilt.

Here is the Mini Scattered with my Roasted Coffee table runner to give you a better idea of the size.

This is another mini Scattered with a border on it. I bet you are surprised to see a quilt that doesn’t have batiks in it! I pieced this back in September and blogged about it here when I was experimenting with the pattern.

Here it is with the other mini so you can see it with or without a border.

    Love the stain glass look. Keep up the walking! I track mine with my iPhone. Works great. Been a walker for 40 years! Makes the day better and gets the endorphin's going!

    I love mini quilts too, instant gratification. Your scattered quilts are so pretty and so different. How wonderful that you are walking regularly. I can't wait to get out again as soon as I am over this flu that has me confined to the bed currently.

    Every quilt in every size that you create is amazing. The Batiks are super stunning and look so much like stained glass. I LOVE them very much. Fun small size for lots of uses. Love seeing your photo and looks like a great day with friends. Congratulations on your walking so much. Embracing Creative Bliss…

    Those minis are so darned cute I'm thinking you could become addicted to making those. I like the mini without the border probably because of the stained glass effect but both are super.

  11. Beautiful! I love the colors of the batik.

  12. I lived in central Illinois from 69 to 97. Many a trip to Princeton to that packed fabric store from the BMI area! But I lived in small town in Whiteside Co before 69. We would have to travel near Princeton to go visit family. Fulton, in our back yard practically!

    They look like stained glass! 🙂

  15. I love mini quilts too. They really make it fun to decorate the house and allows you a chance to "try" a pattern to see if you like it.
