I know I have lots of WIPs (WIP – Works in Progress) and many UFOs (Unfinished Objects), but I keep seeing other patterns that I may one day want to make. The Internet is full of talented designers and many are gracious to share tutorials and/or patterns.
- Tiny Trails – Baby Quilt – Tutorial at Orchid Owl Quilts Blog. This is listed as a beginner project that uses 5 fat quarters plus a small amount of yardage for both borders.
Finished Size: 38” x 47”. Because of the size you won’t need to piece the back! If you do not like matching points, this quilt is for you. Using rectangles and staggering the blocks, you won’t have to match seams. Check out her blog tutorial for tips in creating this quick quilt.
- Star Burst Wall Hanging – All People Quilt (dot) com shares this wall hanging or table topper which finishes 48-1/2” square.
This color way is bright and cheery! The center star block is 24” square and the double four-patch squares are 8”.
- Cider Row by Pat Sloan – A scrap-busting design which can be as big as you want it to use up your scraps.
If you are organized and have your scraps pre-cut into 2.5” squares, you can even make these blocks by stitching them as leaders and enders while sewing other projects.

Not exactly quilting, but could also be done with a pieced top. Can a new baby have too many receiving blankets or quilts?
If you don’t want a full-size project or if you have some scraps left over and want to make something to match, a Mug Rug is a great choice. Also a great way to practice small piecing, FMQ (Free-Motion Quilting) and binding.
Hope you’ve enjoyed seeing some of the projects that I’ve found this week. If you see something you like to add to your Bucket List, leave a comment on their blog sharing your appreciation for their efforts.
