The Mindful Quilt Project aims to help you practise creating and sewing each and every day for just 15-30 minutes, working on a different block each month.
You can read more information about the inspiration behind the Mindful Quilt Project here.
By working on just one block style at a time, we are able to focus on the meditative action of sewing daily, rather than trying to remember how each new block goes together! The blocks have been chosen for;
EASE OF MAKING - Each one is relatively simple and shouldn’t take more than 15-30mins to sew up.
LEARNING SKILLS - hand-piecing, sewing curves, applique, prepping and organising blocks.
VERSATILITY - many of the blocks can be put together in different ways to create different patterns. Different options will be covered each month so that you can personalise your quilt.
SCRAP BUSTING - if you have a stash of fabric you would like to work through, this is an ideal project! Each block finishes at 4” and you will need pieces of fabric a minimum 1.5” square up to 5” square maximum.
- PROGRESS TRACKERS - because it's always good to see that those little moments each day are adding up to something bigger!
The sampler includes a total of 12 blocks.
