Spring mini Cricut Maker quilt tutorial

Spring mini Cricut Maker quilt tutorial

Sharing is caring!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

Cricut maker quiltSpring is right around the corner! Our yard & trees are still brown so I thought I’d sew up some cheery florals while I wait for the real ones to bloom. Instead of printing pattern pieces or measuring (and then double checking), I opted to try quilting with Cricut instead! I have the Maker machine with a nifty little rotary blade, allowing me to cut quilting cotton without any bonding to stabilize it. Cricut sponsored this post which means they provided materials & compensated me for my time, but as always, my opinions are my own.

I picked one of the cute designer fabric bundles that Cricut carries, this one from Riley Blake screams spring to me!

While I don’t mind cutting a few rectangles, I always struggle with cutting perfect circles and the Cricut does it easily! This is where the Maker really shines in my opinion; depending on the pattern it might not save a ton of time after you trim the fabric to 12″ wide, apply it, program it, and pull it back out. But the precision cannot be beat! It cut through the patchwork seams no problem and made a perfect circle.spring floral mini quilt tutorial

It’ll be hanging up on my sewing room wall by the time you read this post! I’m trying the safety pin on the back, hung on to a pushpin idea to display it. I’d love to hear how you show off mini quilts!

Supplies

  • Cricut Maker
  • Fat quarter bundle or 4 different woven cotton fabrics – this is a Cricut/Riley Blake bundle
  • Cricut felt
  • Cricut rotary blade
  • Brayer
  • Pink fabric mat
  • FQ of backing fabric
  • FQ of batting

Step 1

Trim your fabric to 12″ wide and use the brayer to roll it on to your pink fabric mat. Cut (8) 2″wX11″h strips.

Step 2

Sew the strips together with 1/4″ seam allowance. Use an iron to press them all open.

Step 3

Apply the patchwork piece on to the pink fabric mat and adhere with the brayer. Cut the 10.5″ inch circle out.

Step 4

Cut out a woven cotton piece larger than the circle, and a matching batting piece. Layer the woven cotton right side down, batting, and then center the patchwork circle on top. Use pins or safety pins to secure & quilt it!
