{Day Ten}’s gift suggestion is the mini quilt.

{Y’all knew I’d find away to get more quilts into these posts!}

Different than a full size quilt, a mini is a super fast gift idea.

A few of the mini quilts I’m showing you today have very tiny pieces. That’s fun, but you can also make a mini with just one quilt block. The low volume Dresden plate, for example at the top of the post is a single, simple block set in the center of a mini quilt. Don’t feel like it has to have a gazillion teeny tiny pieces to be called a mini!

As you can see, I make a lot of tiny quilts!

One year, I made all the women on my gift list a similar mini quilt. This allowed me to do each task assembly line. For example, I was able to do all my cutting at once. It made really quick work of these Christmas Dresden Plates! Be sure to add a small sleeve on the back so it can be hung on the wall!

Happy Christmas Crafting!
