To solve my own problem, I came up with the anti-mini quilt. And I really enjoy making these Maxi Quilts. So fast, and so fun.
My first is the maxi version of my Catching Rays quilt. She takes just 8 fat quarters plus your background fabric. Four blocks and a border later, you have a 72" square quilt. Perfect for a picnic blanket.
Make it with Christmas fabrics and it's a stunning wall quilt. Doesn't it look just like a big snowflake? (I used Kate Spain's newest holiday line Jingle).
My second is the maxi version of my Fresh Air quilt. I wanted to try an all solids version, but you can make this quilt with 8 different half yard cuts (you'll end up with some great scraps, or you could use the extra for a scrappy binding).
She finishes at 90" square (36" blocks) and really showcases larger prints that get lost in smaller blocks.
My last is the maxi version of my Flower quilt. Flower has been my best selling pattern, and I knew I wanted larger blocks. I decided to make some sunflowers with it, but she looks fantastic with so many other fabrics.
The blocks are 32", and she finishes at 76" square.
All these patterns are for sale in my Craftsy store. Enjoy!
Oh, and mini quilts are on their way. I suppose it's time to give in. And checking off the Catching Rays Maxi from the 1QFAL list.
