Maker Mini Wall Hanging

A little while ago, I signed up for Quiet Play's newsletter and got a free pattern as a little Thank You!

I had seen these all over Instagram - how cute is that?!  I'm not usually a big fan of paper piecing and there are some really tiny pieces in this block (the whole block finishes at 10"), but I just had to make this one.

It took a few evenings to get this sewn up - I got really close to my seam ripper in the process - but I'm really happy with it.

For the quilting, I went with fun wavy lines with the walking foot.

And now it's hanging on my sewing room wall - reminding me every day that I'm a maker!!  :-)

  1. It is a perfect mini to hang in your sewing space! I always get nicely acquainted with my seam ripper when I paper piece; I just don't do it often enough to remember what I should be doing. :) I really like that the word "maker" is so bright and vibrant.

  2. How fun! I love the 'maker' items I've seen on Ig etc.

  3. This is awesome. 10 inches is
