Trinket is a quilt pattern by Alison Glass. She recently hosted a Quilt-Along for the pattern on Instagram and I decided to join in. I thought the blocks were unique and adorable finishing at 4" square.

I used Alison Glass' Kaleidoscope fabric in Sapphire for the background and set the blocks together in the checkerboard design featured in the pattern. Since I used the Sapphire for the background of the blocks, they appear to float on the quilt, losing the checkerboard effect. All of the blocks finish at 4", and I placed them on the quilt from smallest to largest motif.

For the quilting, I used angled straight lines that were spaced more closely at the top of the quilt and further apart toward the bottom the quilt. I started at 3/8", increasing by 1/8" increments until I got to 1" spacing.

I decide to create a bit of an "X" design near the top for more interest in the quilting. The thread color is a medium gray. (Note: this photo was taken indoors and the above photos better represent the color of the quilt).

A couple of my favorite little blocks...

This quilt is a really fun one to make as long as you like paper piecing!


  1. That is a great quilt with a wonderful combination of unique blocks. I really like the feather!

  2. Cindy, what a gorgeous quilt. I started to join-in on that event but backed out. Is the pattern suited for a beginner with paper piecing?

    1. Many of the blocks are very easy, a few bit more complicated. A beginner could definitely make it - I would start with the simpler blocks first. Hope that helps!

  3. I love how they float on the background and great idea to sort them by size! Congrats - and enjoy your finish :) xo Melanie

  4. I love your layout from smallest to largest! Very clever. It turned out really great. Congrats on the finish :)
