After a really big finish, like the 100-Patch Quilt, I often seem to have a burst of creative energy directed at something small.
Since first built the Hundred Hugs Quilt I have thought about how it might look small. Small as in starting-with-1-1/2″-squares small. So, it was time to give it a try.
Eeeep! Too cute!
If you like “mini” give it a try. I’ll be glad to help with the math if you would like. 288 pieces. It finishes at 18-1/2″ square.
Speaking of “mini” and “Hundred Hugs,” here is a picture of those babies at about two weeks old with their Hundred Hugs quilts. Oh, it does a quilter’s heart good to see quilts doing their job.

Thanks for sharing a photo of the babies. They’re gorgeous.
I really like the mini quilt. The points on your triangles look so crisp.
it does a quilting GRANDMA’s quilting heart good to see her new grandbabies all snuggled under their quilts..what a darling picture.. and i do like the mini 100 hugs..would be a great pad to have in the diaper bag for changing them on…love the colors…
Love the blues and oranges. And the sawtooth border.
Awww. Too cute with the babies and their quilts! I like how you quilted the mini-quilt on the diagonal. That has a nice look to it.
Look at those little sweeties! Both asleep at the same time? How often does that happen?
Now we know why the word “cute” was created!
The babies are adorable. I wonder how hard they had to work to get a picture of both of them sleeping at the same time. =) I love your mini version. I’m not a mini person, as far as sewing, but I do appreciate them hanging on a cute little hanger on the wall!
very cute babies and quilt may have to make one
Your mini is so cute. You really are tempting me to give it a try.
Oh! those beautiful babies make my heart skip. I will be a Grandma again to another grandaughter early December. Last week I went to the Doctor with DIL (son couldn’t make it) and I got to hear the heartbeat. Truly amazing it was. The end of September she has booked me in to go with her for her ultrasound. So I will get to see the little precious all snug and happy inside. New life and modern technology are amazing. I can’t wait to get time to start her 100 hugs quilt and lots of other pretty pink girly stuff.
The mini quilt is darling and so are those babies.
