Here’s the fall mini quilt I sent to my partner Chris in Alabama.

The fabrics: a gorgeous leaf print, that was in my stash, sadly without selvedge so I’m not sure where it came from. The three coordinating fabrics are from Ricky Tims’ Rhapsodie ColorĂ©e III line.


The 1/2 square triangles finished at 1.5″. They were pieced using Brenda Henning’s Triangulations CD. I love this CD, makes 1/2 square and 1/4 square triangles in various sizes… so accurate!

I quilted in the ditch around each seam and echoed straight lines in the outer border.

Here’s the gorgeous mini quilt I received from Rebecca in Australia.


A close up of the swirls, which I love:


Here’s a mini magic tiles quilt with batiks that will be used as an angel quilt. Magic tiles is a pattern by Kathleen Bissett. To complete the pattern correctly you would start with 12 fabrics and end up with 12 blocks. I did this one as a test, to see if 9 fabrics would work too (it didn’t, but I still like it). My starting blocks were 6″ square.

    Re: the magic tiles quilt pattern–
    I don’t understand how exactly to shift the
    12 fabrics once they are in the process of being cut.
    Thanks to anyone who can help me out.

    Hi Dianne,

    I don’t have the pattern in front of me right now, so you’ll need to check it to see what it says. Here’s what you do. You have your blocks of fabric in front of you. Make the first cut in your stack of blocks. Then, as indicated in the pattern, move fabric from one of the sides of the cut pieces to the bottom of that pile. The pattern will indicate which side of the blocks to switch and how many pieces of fabric get moved to the bottom.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Mishka,
    Thanks for your reply. I do not believe that my pattern indicates how or when or the number pieces of fabric to move. If your pattern has this information I would appreciate having it. Thanks.
