Monthly Mini Quilt for January 2018 – Flora!


Flora Mini Quilt by Molly and Mama - 4.jpg

I’m so excited to share with you the pattern for our first mini quilt of 2018… Flora! This beautiful little quilt was designed by the very talented Lauren of Molly & Mama. I am enchanted by her blog and all the lovely things she makes!

About the Flora Mini Quilt Pattern, Lauren writes:

This darling mini quilt design embodies everything I love about sewing; tiny florals, pretty details and hand sewing hexies! Made using my favourite fabric, Liberty tana lawn, it features simple patchwork borders accentuated with hand quilting. The precious flower in the centre also gives an easy introduction to the process of English paper piecing. It’s always such a pleasure to design something that suits all sewing levels. You can keep it simple with the included instructions or try something new and different to give the Flora Mini Quilt your own special touch. I can’t wait to see all the different versions you create!

It’s simply perfect!


You may have seen my slightly-more-modern version made with Pixie Dot fabrics from Ink & Arrow. Read how I sewed it completely by hand while on our family winter vacation in Tennessee.

When she gave me the pattern, Lauren provided comprehensive step by step instructions with LOTS of photos. I can’t show them all here, but I didn’t want to hold anything back from you, so I prepared the pattern for you as a PDF.

Note: the instructions direct you to use 1” hexi papers. I have included a separate sheet of printable 1” hexi’s with the pattern. Make sure you print it at 100%, no enlarging or reducing.

    I’ve just begun receiving your blog and want to tell you how much I appreciate it. I’m looking forward to a year of new mini quilts, as well as possibly tackling some from 2017. Your sweet family picture tugs at my heart, a beautiful family reminding me of my younger days with three beautiful children, a handsome husband (as yours is). Closing in on 82, I cherish my memories and love seeing young families such as yours, giving me hope that all is still right with the world despite current challenges. Bless you and all those you hold dear.
    Looking forward to trying this lovely little quilt – love the choice of fabric, very well named.

    I don’t know which I love more: Lauren’s sweet embroideries or the Liberty fabrics! Combining them just melts my heart.

  6. Thank you so much for the opportunity to design a monthly mini for your readers, Caroline! I hope they enjoy making the pattern their own. Happy sewing everyone!

  7. I started hand stitching this during my monthly infusion treatments. You inspired me! I finally finished the border yesterday! So happy!
