Scrappy Mini Quilt Keychain

Today I will show you how I made a mini quilted keychain using a quilt-as-you-go method!

I decided to start with a really small beginner’s project to build my confidence, thus this keychain.

Materials Needed:

– Backing fabric square – mine was 4″ x 4″ – Batting fabric square  – Fabric scraps – Scrap of ribbon – Two buttons


So I already had the backing fabric cut into a square from when I had cut up a bunch of scraps. The backing square was 4″ by 4″ so I took that as my starting point.

Choose your backing fabric.


If you have cotton batting to hand you can absolutely use it for this.

Cut your batting square.

The main thing I was looking for was for each strip to stretch across the batting square diagonally.

Pick your Scraps!



I placed my first two strips right sides together diagonally on my batting square and sewed through the strips, the batting and the backing all at once.

Get quilting!


When I was done sewing on my strips I flipped the block over and pinned back the excess backing fabric.

Cut off excess


Once the edges were all cleaned up I folded each side of the backing fabric over twice and placed over the edge of the batting square. I then stitched it!
