Coral Reef Swirls Mini Quilt

During March the Island Batik ambassadors are sharing mini quilts that are smaller than 24″ x 24″ made with some of the new Island Batik fabric collections.
Coral Reef Swirls made with Island Batik fabrics for Mini Madness
For my Coral Reef Swirls I used a stamp set which is 5 inch squares of Coral Reef, a cream batik background, my Sizzix Big Shot.

The colors are so bright and vibrant and I thought it would be fun to make a table topper for my granddaughters to have in their bedroom. I think they will get a kick out of this!

I did a free motion straight stitch around the swirls in matching thread and then did a simple meandering on the cream blocks.

The size of my mini quilt is 18″ x 18″. It would have made a cute pillow too.

Remember that Island Batik also has a store locator on their blog to help you find their batiks. Joan, from MooseStash Quilting recently showed her Mini Madness project and also shared that Hancock’s of Paducah is having a sale on Island Batik fabrics, you might want to check that out……I did!

  1. It's an exciting little mini! I love that you used both parts of the cut out for your appliques! Great job Connie!

  2. I think it is just awesome and the fact that you used both the swirls and the background of which it was cut from-yep another great project Connie!

  3. I just love mini's and all the crazy fun things you can do on them! Oh you found the Island Batik sale at Hancocks too??? My package should be here Friday. I can hardly wait! Great job you did on this one! 🙂
