Mini-Mod Quilts
Half-Day Workshop
12 pm - 3 pm EST, Saturday, May 1

Inspired by Mid-Century Modern design, we will start with a simple, modern color palette of neutral fabrics with a flash of color. Clean lines combined with simple design give each tiny composition a sophisticated feeling. Participants will learn the quilt-as-you-go method, and a PDF materials and supplies list will be emailed in advance. Hand stitching adds a sleek, linear element. Finishing techniques will be demonstrated.

Students to Provide
Neutral fabric plus some bright-colored scraps, cotton quilt batting, sewing machine and notions. A complete PDF supply list and pre-class instructions will be emailed to students.


Please Note: 
Try out your walking foot attachment before class until you are confident it is working properly.

Materials List:

Cotton sewing thread to go with your fabrics: a medium grey works great, or match the neutrals you’re using.

6–8 scraps of fabric: choose solid or subtly printed quilting cotton fabrics in a neutral color family. Very subtle textures are OK but no strong prints, please. Choose colors in one family with similar values, such as ALL light grey, ALL medium grey, ALL black, ALL tan, ALL navy, etc.

If you use prints, make sure they are very small. Yarn dyed woven fabrics are nice for this project and provide a texture contrast to the printed cottons.

2–3 small scraps of solid accent fabrics: choose strong, bright, modern colors. No prints, please.

1 piece of quilting cotton for the backing: cut into 5" x 5" squares (cut 6–8)

1 piece of cotton quilt batting: cut into 5" x 5" squares (cut 6–8)

OPTIONAL: #8 or #12 perle hand quilting cotton thread and a sashiko or embroidery needle

Please cut the above materials to size before class, so you can have as much time as possible to work on your mini quilts.

Home sewing machine with walking foot and quarter-inch seam allowance foot (or standard foot)
