I’m so excited to finally share this project! I started working on it right after finishing my Scrappy Chevron Mini Quilt, but had several other projects needing to be finished first. This mini quilt features a scrappy column on one side and a larger section where you can feature the print of your choice. I chose this cute Frozen fabric since this is part of my DIY Disney series, but you can chose any fabric you like.
This is the perfect little project to practice several different techniques. I incorporated paper piecing, adding a decorative lace, hand quilting around designs, and creating continuous bias binding all into this one mini quilt! It is also a fat quarter friendly project! So if you have a fat quarter you love and just can’t seem to cut into this is the perfect project! You only need to trim a small section off the fat quarter and the rest will be the main focal point of your mini quilt.

The feature fabric is cut to 14 1/2 by 22 inches and the scrappy section measures 4 x 22 inches so the mini quilt finishes about 18 x 22 inches. However you can scale it up or down to suit your needs. I think it would look really fun as a crib size quilt with a scrappy panel on all four sizes and a large feature print in the middle. You can use a regular piece of fabric to feature as shown in the video tutorial or a piece cut from a fun character sheet or pillow case.
When you are ready to finish the quilt make sure to check out last week’s post where I teach the EASIEST method for making continuous bias binding for your quilting project. I also created a helpful chart showing exactly how much fabric you need to create the length of width of bias binding you need. It’s something you definitely want to pin or save so you can refer back to it any time you need.
