Katy’s Teeny Tiny Mosaic Tiles Quilt Pillow: : Mosaic Tiles Quilt Along

Hello! I am Katy, better known as LethargicLass, and I am excited to be a part of this quilt along. I met Lindsay last fall at Sewing Summit, and I bought my copy of Modern Bee directly from her. Sadly, I didn’t think of asking her to sign it though lol. When Lindsay asked if I would like to be a part of this blog hop quilt along I was thrilled! I immediately started thinking of what I could make. I wanted to keep the look of the quilt, but without the size. I am a very slow quilt maker, and I knew I wouldn’t have the time. So I went small. Really small.

I drew my plan up in my trusty little graph book, and then attempted the math. Several times.

Finally I figured out that I needed to start with 2” centers and one inch borders to create my original block before cutting into fours.

I like to work at different stages of things at one time so I don’t get bored by something like a huge pile of trimming. You can see what I mean below.

I finally finished the pillow at 20”x20”. That is when I realised that my 20” pillow form was actually 18” lol

It most certainly isn’t perfect, but I love it :) Here is the backside. I used one of my favourite prints from Connecting Threads and I don’t have much left.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I made, and I would love to know if anyone else attempts one this small :)  Please check out the rest of the Mosaic Tiles Quilt Along!
