Munki Minis

Munki Minis

Over the weekend I had a burst of creativity and everything I had been working on was pushed aside. *Months* ago I had made a couple Munki Munki blocks for fun. I had no idea what I was going to do with them, but I just really wanted to cut into that cute Heather Ross fabric. Then they sat in a little box….so sad and lonely. Then suddenly on Saturday, it hit me! Mini, modern, one-of-a-kind baby quilts!

Munki Minis Fronts

I decided I needed to make a rainbow of them (minus purple – I really just don’t have that much purple in my stash!) I am so very excited with how they turned out.

Each one uses a bit of my Heather Ross fabrics. Some I had from trades, some I purchased from Kerri over at Sew Deerly Loved. Kerri sells bits and pieces of the Munki Munki pajamas – pure genius!

All Detail

Each mini quilt measure 18″ x 21″. The backs coordinate with a fabric used on the front in the block and the binding also matches the backings. I quilted them in modern, “random” (I marked them before quilting) straight lines. I just love how they turned out!

    These little quilts are absolutely adorable! I love how bright and fun they are. I especially love the backing and binding of the red quilt. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog– I’m so glad you did, as it led me to yours, and made me want to run to my sewing machine right now to work on new projects! You have a great sense of color and I love your quilts!

      I didn’t know that! Not to make you feel pressured, but if you decide you want something “boy” for him, I have blue VW van fabric too.

      I made Anna a rag lovey for Will using the goldfish and it would have been cute with the vans as well.

    These are so cool and modern! I love that you’re just using a small bit of the Munki fabric. It really becomes the star of the quilt. Your binding choices are fantastic too!

    Can I ask how you mark your quilting lines? Do you use a washable fabric marker?

    Another stroke in the column of “Less is More.” *Fabulous!* I just love these – great idea to make small amounts of such great prints the “star of the show.”
