Mini Lotus

One of my favorite Hex N More quilt blocks to create is the Lotus block. When I released my Mini Hex N More ruler (click the link to the ruler to see the video tutorial on how to use it), I knew it was only a matter of time to bring you Mini Lotus.

Quilt Details 
Fabric is Artisan Batiks: Asian Legacy 4 by Lunn Studios for Robert Kaufman Fabrics
Pattern - Mini Lotus, JBQ 143
Designed by me
Quilted by Angela Walters
Started on 3/20/14
Finished on 4/29/14
Mini Quilt measures - 17½" x 20½"


Once the cover quilt was ready for her close-up, I headed out to the park with a clothesline and some clips.

It was really windy so the mini quilt started flying!

At one point the quilt almost flew off the clothesline!

You can see some of the awesome quilting that Angela did on this close up photo.

Once the wind calmed down I was able to get a great photo.
The pattern is printed in full color, and it includes templates. Plus there's no Y seams! It's available now at local quilt shops. I posted a Single Fold Binding tutorial to help you finish this quilt easily.

Be sure to share your photos with us on social media using the hashtag #JaybirdMini so we can share in the fun!

I hope you enjoy making this mini quilt as much I as I have been!

This setting is gorgeous! I have the large lotus pattern and the larger ruler, other than a single fabric for the triangles, is there anything else I need to know to do this setting in that size range?
