Feeling like you don’t have the space or time for another large quilt? Then it is time to enter the wonderful world of miniature quilts. Since I made several mini quilts this year - and enjoyed the process and the lovely results - I was excited to review the Moda All-Stars Mini Marvels compiled by Lissa Alexander for That Patchwork Place.

Mini Marvels offers a diverse selection of fifteen little quilts by fifteen different designers. As a result, the collection offers something for everyone. Some of the mini quilts feel traditional such as Little Love with its appliquéd hearts, Dashing with small Churn Dash blocks, and Mini Medallion with a Sawtooth Star center surrounded by Flying Geese and Broken Dishes. Midnight Garden is a spectacular 17-1/2” square miniature quilt with an intricate wool appliqué floral design.

The collection also offers several mini quilts with a more modern vibe. My favorites are Butterfly Kisses with four butterflies appliquéd in coral and black fabrics and Zen Chic with interlocking rectangles. A Pink Christmas depicts a charming small village at Christmas with wool and cotton appliqué and embroidery – all in an unexpected pink palette. It is easy to see how most of the quilts could read as either traditional or contemporary depending on the fabrics and colors chosen. I am eager to add Mini Marvels to my quilt library and think many other quilters will find it inspiring.
