It's so fun to make mini quilts! My mom and I like to make placemats and doll quilts because it gives us a chance to play with the fabrics on a smaller scale and try new methods of quilting and new designs without being committed to making a large quilt. If you feel like you don't have time to quilt, I encourage you to try a small project like this. It's a win-win situation because you get a little bit of fun, crafty, quilting time and you can finish your project in just a couple of short sewing sessions. Plus you can make fun gifts for your kids or fun decor for your table!
