Bust-A-Kiss Block Mini

HellofromCat Bust-A-Kiss Block - Cover

Last week Cat from Cat & Vee posted a fabulous tutorial for her Bust-A-Kiss block on their blog.    Did you see it?   Trust me, you are definitely going to want to check it out!    It took me about 1 second to know that I had to make one, it was going to be a mini and, that I was making it with Fresh Cut, the gorgeous new Moda fabric line by Basic Grey!

Cat’s tutorial is for a 12 1/2″ unfinished block with step by step directions that are super easy to follow.    To make the mini I resized the block by starting with a 7″ square.  The centre strings were made by joining five mini charm squares together and then trimming each set to 2″ x 10 1/2″.

After making and joining four blocks together I added a simple border…

… did some simple straight line quilting, binding and voila! one completed mini top all in a couple of hours.

And then I started thinking that this mini would make an awesome cushion cover!  I haven’t sewn another one just yet but you can bet I will do in the near future.   In the meantime, my mini and I will be hanging out with the gorgeous flowers I picked up this morning, having a cup of tea and a read.   Looks blissful doesn’t it!  Hope you enjoy your day too 🙂

  1. Well, that’s refreshingly springlike. I love how you’ve highlighted the peach in your first photo – my tea times never look that pretty (doesn’t help that I’m usually drinking coffee). It’s great to see Cat’s block all Peta-rized! 😉

    1. Thanks Kirsty, you are a treasure. Those flowers were pure luck since I have a serious flower budget to stick to, they are pretty though aren’t they. Since I’m yet to hang a mini on a wall I figure they using them as table toppers is a pretty good idea. Thanks again 🙂

  2. Oh it looks gorgeous!! Look at you with the beautiful styling too – the flowers, Kate Morton and Vivienne W cup and saucer – looks awesome. Thanks for doing a resize and saying the measurements too, you know quilt maths is my enemy. Thanks so much for sharing it. xx

  3. This is such a cute mini!! I love the spring colors and the quilting is perfect for it!! Great job!!
