I’m so excited to show you my new mini quilt and introduce the next designer in our Monthly Mini quilts series. It’s Jennifer Heynen who sews, paints, sculpts, makes jewelry, designs fabric, and so much more over at Jennifer Jangles!
I was so inspired by Jennifer’s happy and fun design that I pulled apart my stash looking for just the right ones to compliment it. I love the quilting on my mini – and I must admit that I totally copied the spiral quilting design (done with a walking foot) that I saw on Jennifer’s mini.
I threw this star fabric on the back for kind of a night and day theme. What do you think? (off topic: one of my all-time favorite movies is Knight and Day with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. It’s so hilarious.)
Now I just have to decide where to put it on my new mini quilt wall. I was planning to put the next quilt on the top right (see above), but this arrangement makes the sun shine down on nothing. Maybe that’s okay since I can put the next quilt to the right so the sun will shine on it?
Or maybe I should put it way up top to shine down on all the others? What do you think??? Tell me in the comments!
Are you dying to see Jennifer’s Sunshine Mini Quilt and get the pattern? Just come back Monday and it will be here! (our new mini quilt patterns are released on the 1st Monday of the month.)
So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.

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!

It’s time for the next free pattern in the SewCanShe Applique of the Month Club! My sketch book has been filling up with flowers lately, and this wild poppy made it onto a table topper with match stick quilting. Do you want to make one?
This little flower design is close to my heart. I’ve made three versions of it now. My original flower had over 20 petals! In order to make it easier for everyone, I changed the flower head design, making 3 layers of petals and each layer is a single pattern piece. That’s where I got the idea of ‘Firecracker Flower’ because it overlaps and bursts open like a firecracker.

There’s nothing more magical than Christmas treats! It’s what dreams are made of:) These felt Christmas donuts are perfect to use as yummy holiday décor or even play food for the little ones to make believe with. Come learn to…
I love the beautiful colors you used for your mini quilt. I think it looks good where it’s at. Can’t wait for the pattern. This would be a fun mini to make.
I tried to add a picture from my computer but it did not work again. I am #31. I can’t seem to make the instructions work.
