Modern Mini Blanket Plans

Hey! Did you know that Leah Day is having a quilt along this month? If you've ever thought about quilting, but just don't know where to start, then this may be the perfect opportunity. This will be a modern quilt, with no strict rules to follow, no tiny pieces to cut, and no finicky angles to match. In fact, the more crooked your lines, the better it will look. If you have a ruler and some kind of cutting implement, then you can make this quilt top. Head over to this page to see some sample quilts and find out what this is all about.

Since I am currently quite far from home, with only an iPad and an airplane appropriate sewing kit (no scissors allowed), I have scaled things down considerably. I plan to make this a mini blanket for donating to a local animal rescue organisation.

I've cut some flannel squares and picked out a solid navy blue background for this project. Here is what I'll be working with:

Looking forward to seeing everyone's take on this modern quilt!


  1. What are you going to cut with? (on the plane)

  2. You are a real quilter to be able to work without a machine! Hope will be posting more details on how you do this!

  3. Ah! I should specify that I will be home in time to get this machine sewn! I've just brought along enough small hand sewing projects to tide me over until then :)
