Have you tried one of the Little Bites patterns from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.? They are so much fun! All of the Little Bites feature using Moda Candies (if you're not familiar with them, you must check them out, they are a smaller, oh so cute version of a charm pack measuring 2.5" x 2.5").
This quilt is made from the pattern called Tidbit. She features three different versions of the pattern. I made the top one, but decided to add colorful borders instead of the solid background color.
The little candie pack was so fun to use, I usually don't make small quilts but I really enjoyed this one! Her techniques were great, and really cut down on individual piecing.
Here's a picture of the back. So, a fatquarter isn't quite large enough for a backing... sooooo I cut what little scraps I had remaining and used them to splice the back to make it just big enough (and boy do I mean just big enough!). Don't get me wrong, I love scraps and making more projects from them, but I feel so accomplished when I can use all the fabric I have in one quilt!
So there you have it, you must put it on your list of adorable small quilts to make!

I'm not known for small piecing, I'm more of an instant gratification type of girl. But I just couldn't resist busting open one of these Boho candies!
Aren't they adorable? We have a whole assortment of mini charms, more and more lines are coming out with them. If you haven't had the opportunity to work with them, they sure are fun! 42 squares in a pack (just like a charm pack), but these little guys are only 2.5" x 2.5". Check out the mini charms we have available, it's hard to choose between them all!
Those little pieced squares are only 2" x 2", maybe not the smallest blocks out there but they sure are cute! I'm only about half way done...
Make sure to check back to see how this little mystery quilt turns out! I'm hoping to be done with the top this week if all goes according to plan.
