I worried a little bit that the interfacing would make my quilt overly stiff, but it’s not stiff at all.
Here’s a diagram of my little quilt in case you’d like to try one of your own.
Fabric picking tips: I suggest gathering different shades of gray/black, blue, and violet from your stash (or scrap pile), cutting a few squares of each and arranging them from lightest to darkest, and then playing with them before you sew the mini-quilt together. Place the darkest pieces in the darkest spots, moving to the lightest pieces in the lightest spots. Have fun!
So my experiment was a success! I’m hoping to try a bigger quilt with gridded interfacing sometime. Have any of you tried it?
My friend Heather used gridded interfacing to sew a gorgeous quilt with all her Tula Pink scraps. Well, probably not ALL – but quite a few!

At my daughter Chloe’s high school (can you believe my baby started high school???), the lunch lines are so long that she has been skipping lunch! She’s always starving by the time she gets home because she doesn’t want to carry a big lunch bag as well as her heavy backpack – poor girl!
I am so in love with the beautiful look of simple patchwork quilts with lots of squares. This is the perfect way to use up fabric scraps like I did, or you can make a beautifully coordinated quilt with pre-cut 2 1/2’’ square fabric pieces that come in mini-charm packs.
I’m also in love with the process. If you feel like quilt making is your escape from the world and sitting down to sew for a few hours makes your troubles fade away… this is the quilt for you!

How’s this for a tiny mini quilt? We’ve been having so much fun making mini quilts lately (see all the patterns in the menu bar above)… that I decided to see how tiny I could make a mini. These tiny quilts turned out so cute, less than 2” tall and perfect for DIY magnets.

Caroline, what a cute butterfly! No, I have’t tried the gridded interfacing, but after seeing yours, I might have to try it! Thanks for hosting the link party!
Oh I love this cute quilt! Seems easy too! Thanks for the show off party! Happy weekend!
I have use the grided interfacing for a minecraft quilt – not yet finished, but it is so much easier to use the grids and get it all to line up beautifully! I wonder if I can sneak this butterfly into my son’s quilt!!
