Big Announcement- My New Mini-Quilt Club!

Hi Everyone! I’m making a BIG announcement today! In my last newsletter, I mentioned that mini quilts are really popular- probably because they’re quick little projects that you can use to add warmth and personality to a room without spending a lot of time and money on them… So guess what? I’ve been working with my friend Michele from Mishka’s Playground to bring you a monthly club, called the Small and Sweet Mini Quilt Club!SmallAndSweetMiniQuiltClub-BannerC

I’ve designed the projects, and Michele will be the hostess. Beginning January 15, 2016, we will release a pattern a month, and it will run for six months. Each pattern will have easy to follow step-by-step diagrams and applique patterns- if you liked my Cozy Afternoon and Sew Sweet Simplicity BOM’s, you’re going to LOVE this! Each pattern will include a non-applique version of the quilt as well. The designs will be a mystery until they are released (although- you can get a sneak peak of a couple from the photo above!)

Here are the details:

Designed by: Jacquelynne Steves
Club hostess: Michele Foster, Mishka’s Playground, sign up for club here
Program details: Six monthly PDF patterns
Dates: January 15 to June 15, 2016
Finished size: Each mini quilt finishes at 26″ square
Skill level: Beginner – Confident Beginner
Technique: Pieced and Fusible Machine Appliqué
Price:$24.00 (USD) for all SIX patterns
Pattern Format: PDF files (download and save instantly)

And here’s how it will work:

The Club starts on January 15, 2016, and will continue until June 15, 2016. While I am the designer, this Club is organized by Michele at Mishka’s Playground. On the 15th of each month (around Noon Eastern time), you will receive an email from Michele, letting you know that the next mini quilt pattern is available. You’ll login to Michele’s website to download the latest pattern.

Why should you be part of “the club”?

There’s a huge advantage to signing up now! You will get all 6 adorable patterns for just $18! That’s an awesome price- just $3 per pattern! This is a Special Introductory Price- After December 25, 2015 the regular club price will be $24 (which is still a great value.) When you join the club, you will also get, for FREE, a very helpful PDF Fusible Machine Applique Tutorial with lots of useful tips and suggestions. The patterns will also be available for purchase individually for $8.00 each, but will not include the Fusible Machine Applique Tutorial.

We will have a lot of fun, hanging out over in Michele’s Aiming for Accuracy Quilt Along Facebook Group, which is a great community for sharing photos of your work and asking for help if you get stuck! You can also share your work over on Instagram- we’ll be using the hashtag #SmallAndSweetQuilt. There may be a few surprises along the way too- who knows?!

HeatNBondLite(By the way- a couple people have asked what kind of fusible I like for machine applique. I really love Heat n Bond Lite. One small pack is enough to do all six mini quilts, but there is also a larger value pack available, which we recommend if you plan on doing more fusible machine appliqué projects. These quilts are so much fun to make, you may find that you want to make several of each pattern!)


You can also grab a button below for your blog sidebar, Facebook, whatever to invite your friends along- please link to this page https://mishkasplayground.com/quilting-patterns/mqc-pieced-appliqued-designs/

    Hi Jacquelynne, I am looking forward to join in on the mini quilt sew along. Do you have fabric kits for these projects or do we need to get our own fabrics. This is going to be fun. I love mini quilts cause lots of time I don’t have time to complete a huge project. Thanks for sharing your creativity.

      Hi Mariann- there will probably not be kits for these kits. If I do kit them, I will let my newsletter subscribers know first- as kits tend to sell out fast :) I’m sooooo glad you are joining us for this! It’s going to be a lot of fun!!

    This is a different mini club from Michele’s?
    When does the intro rate end?
    I’m starting to like mini’s–it’s easier to whip up a bunch of minis for a donation prize than do a big one!

      HI Liz- yes, this is different from Michele’s current mini club. We haven’t determined yet when that introductory price will end- definitely by the end of the month, maybe sooner. We will make an announcement when the deadline approaches.

    I like the idea of a “mini” quilts group. I’ve just now signed up and was wondering if I missed supplies needed, or will this be in the first email around January 15? I want to be prepared as much as possible so I can keep up. Thank you.
    Merry Christmas, Gayla

      Hi Gayla- You will need fusible web. I like Heat n Bond Lite from Thermoweb- a large pack is more than enough to do all of the projects. http://shrsl.com/?~aojs
      You will also need thread for machine applique and piecing. Fabric requirements will be included in each pattern as it is sent out on the 15th of each month. Since these are small projects with small fabric requirements, you may find that you have fabric in your “stash” to complete them :)

    Hi there. My comment is not regarding the adorable mini quilt but about a free block pattern that I printed back in January. It is called Swirl Away. I thought that a free block pattern was going to be printed each month with yours featured in June. I wonder if I misunderstood and if so where might I get the block patterns?
    Thanks for your help with this, I so enjoy your site!
