Sugar Pop N Change Mini - A Finish and a Tutorial!!!

I am super excited to be sharing a new Moda Bake Shop Tutorial today as part of their December Mini Celebration!!! And wouldn't you guess, it's Purple!!!!

The Moda Bake Shop asked some of it's chefs to take one of their favorite Moda Bake Shop tutorials and make it mini for this month ;)  I choose one of my first tutorials, the Sugar Pop N Change quilt ;)  This was so much fun to make in mini.  Those little "coins" are just 1" x 2".  So cute!!!

I choose to use Vanessa Christensen's Simply Colorful 2 in wonderful Purple.  And all you need is a cute little Junior Jelly Roll and a bit of white ;)  It really goes together super fast, don't you just love that about mini's, and would make an adorable last minute Christmas Present ;)

When it came time to quilt it, I decided to go with some tiny grid quilting.  I used Mono-Poly by Superior Threads.  It is an invisible thread and I just love the way it gives it so much awesome texture but doesn't take away from the design at all.  It was just perfect for working on such a small scale ;)

So that is my Sugar Pop N Change Mini!!!  I hope you love it as much as I do!!!  You can find the complete and free Step by Step Tutorial on how to make this 23" x 23" adorable mini at the Moda Bake Shop, right here ;)    And if you make your own, I would love to see it!!!  Send me an email at or add it to my Flickr Group ;)  I can't wait to see what color combo's you use ;)

And you know this is already hanging on my purple wall of purple mini's ;)  I decided to hang this right by my machine and it makes me smile every time I sit down to sew :)

Thanks for popping in today!!!  Have a Happy Quilting Day!!!!

Linking up this finish to Amada's and Sarah's ;)
