The best things come in small packages: sooo mini, must see! (+ giveaway!)

Peek inside the teeny-tiny world of Italian quiltmaker Serena Boffa Soda—it’s a place where petite pleasures abound!

Small Wonders

Study Serena’s sweet quilts with their fast-to-fuse appliqués, and you’ll discover delightful details upon a closer look:


Thumbnail-high houses complete with doors and windows


Itty-bitty pumpkins ready to harvest


Mini sheep grazing in a mini meadow


Laundry hung on a pint-size clothesline


Birds the size of sunflower seeds taking flight

Only basic sewing and embroidery skills are needed to make the projects in Small Wonders, and Serena’s packed these pages with how-to for every step (so don’t sweat the small stuff!). As you stitch you’ll learn what Serena knows to be true: it’s the little things that make all the difference.

We love what Serena says about the little things in the introduction to Small Wonders:

Serena Boffa Soda“This book is dedicated to the simple life, pulsing with slow, cozy rhythms and marked by the harmony of nature—an ‘old-style’ life that today’s modernity has overshadowed. In this world, everything is made small but with great attention to every possible detail, because the details matter the most. It’s the details and the love we put into them that transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.”

We are so excited to share with you our Q&A with Serena today—all the way from Italy!


Stitch This!: Tell us about how you first started sewing.

Serena: I started sewing late, when I was 29 years old. That year I fell in love with patchwork. I couldn’t resist the call of the fabrics, singing to me like mermaids to sailors! But sewing has always been around me. I have been lucky to experience Grandma and Mom’s sewing talents since I was a young girl. I was fascinated by their talented hands; they taught me everything I needed to shape the quilter I am today.

ST!: What is the sewing scene in Italy like right now?

Serena: Italy is a relatively young country on the patchwork scene, but we’re famous all over the world for our clothing! Quilts are not part of our traditions, but in the last few years we’ve started breathing new air. Something is changing—a new generation is willing to learn, the offerings from shops are improving, and long-arm machines have landed here too! Not to mention our manufacturing industry: we are very proud to count Aurifil thread as an amazing representative of our country inside the quilting market.

ST!: What inspired you to write Small Wonders?

Serena: I love houses and villages and everything that goes with them, so the recurring theme for Small Wonders was easy to imagine. And I knew I had to make them mini! My love for embroidery, appliqué, and English paper piecing completed the idea. I had to think about a different way to look at hexagons, apple cores, and other English-paper-piecing shapes—they became a part of my little landscapes, and I absolutely love the result. Small Wonders is dedicated to the serenity of the heart, where handwork and machine piecing are well balanced.

ST!: What’s your typical process for designing your quilts, and where do you find your inspiration?

Serena: I sketch on paper first. When a new idea comes to my mind, I put it in my special inspiration notebook. Ideas disappear as quickly as they come, so it’s important to get them on paper! You may not need them immediately, but once they are sketched, they’re ready to use. Once a project takes shape, I can move to the computer for the final details. But almost the whole process is done on paper. That doesn’t mean I’ll follow the original plan to the end . . . some things may change along the way, but the first idea is very important. Simple things are the most inspiring to me, and nature is the most important source. There’s such beauty in simple things—we should never get tired of them!

ST!: It’s obvious that you love the little things in life! What is it that draws you to working on such a small scale?

Serena: I have always done it! Since I was a little girl, learning different things, I’ve been working on a small scale. From cross-stitch to painting, if the subject was big, it wasn’t as appealing to me. It had to be small. In small things reside the most beautiful details, which I love the most. Little things speak to my heart in a language I understand.

ST!: How do you use your little quilts? How do you like to display them?

Serena: I love to be surrounded by my mini-quilts in my sewing space, where I spend most of the day. I have them hanging wherever possible, and not only on walls. When I get bored, I simply switch them! Mini-quilts are super easy to take care of and don’t need much space!

ST!: What do you love most about being a quilter?

Serena: I do what I love and this makes me a blessed girl. I’ve had the chance to meet amazing people who share the same passion. The sense of community around the quilting world is something really special to me. That’s why I love teaching—it gives me the chance to get in touch with lovely people!

By the Seaside PillowST!: Finish these sentences for us:

  • One reason making small quilts is so fun is: They are quick to finish! You won’t be haunted by UFOs and guilty feelings about not finishing a project.
  • If I had a three-word quilting mantra, it would be: Relax, enjoy, and keep it easy.
  • My best tip for new quiltmakers is: Don’t be too hard on yourself. Always try your best to achieve the maximum you can, and take care of the details that make all the difference.
  • Before I begin a quilt, I must have: All the fabrics prewashed and pressed!
  • If I had a quilting superpower, it would be: Super-sight for tiny details!

  • hi, the wonderful thing about small quilts is that you can work on it on the go, and quick to complete.
    I work full time and my job gets very busy and stressful. I long to hold fabric, needle and thread. So at times like these making little quilts is the best antidote for people like me. We can get quick satisfaction that we are still putting needful to thread to fabric.
    Small wonders are the ideal projects for such quilts.
    thanks

    —Judy Zei on August 8, 2018
  • I like everything about them. the problem is that sometimes I don’t know what to do with a small project once its done. I like that it shows a few options. I had not thought of putting them together and making a table runner. I love that idea.

    —Kathy Oppelt on August 8, 2018
  • So simple. I love small things to stitch.

    —Lanetta Oxford on August 8, 2018
  • I also love things that are "miniature" and always have. I especially like mini quilts because I can complete them quickly, and they can be hung almost anywhere. I also did a lot of them when I was a beginning quilter because I could afford all the supplies at that time, and get them done when I had small children. This book really speaks to my heart!

    —Amber on August 8, 2018
  • Those are the cutest patterns I ever saw! I love the simplicity of the patterns which is what makes them so adorable! I am a quilter, but stitchery was my first attempt at crafting and was taught to do stitchey by my grandma. I would love to give these a try., because they incorporate all, stitchery, a little appliqué and quilting.

    —Cheryl Hays on August 8, 2018
  • Looks difficult but so sweet!

    —Elaine Davis on August 8, 2018
  • I love the sweetness that all little quilts have. I just want to hug them. These "small wonders" are especially adorable.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win this book.

    —Mary on August 8, 2018
  • To me the genius in this work is that the results appear simple but the inspired use of the shapes (esp. the apple core!) reflect a complex, thoughtful mind.
    LOVE THESE!

    —Jetta on August 8, 2018
  • Her work is so meticulous and so darn sweet💕

    —Martha Cook on August 8, 2018
  • The thing I like about small quilts is that it can usually be finished is less time than a large quilt. Another thing I like is that it can be hung on the wall to admire.

    —Rita Lusk on August 8, 2018
  • I love the tiny details packed in these little quilts…..so sweet!

    —Barb Spurr on August 8, 2018
  • I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book and especially the My Blessings table topper pattern with the house that says Believe. I would like to get a copy as I hand embroidery is my favourite thing to do and I am always looking for patterns and books with houses and animals in it and would definitely make all the patterns in the book!!

    Kerri Mitchell on August 8, 2018
  • So sweet, sweet, sweet!!! Thank you!

    —Janey on August 8, 2018
  • So Satisfying!
    Small projects help break up the timeline of larger projects. A large quilt may take me weeks and when I hit the "I hate it" stage of work, a small break with a small project gets me past the rocky part of the process. Small projects help me get the larger projects finished instead of being put away and maybe forgotten.

    —Stephanie L. on August 8, 2018
  • So sweet!

    —Susan E Torrington on August 8, 2018

    —Kathy Dwan on August 8, 2018
  • What I like most about small quilts is how cute and quick they are to do and also the detail especially in the projects in the book and so far my favourite is the My Blessings table topper and The Simple Life but so far from the pictures I love all the patterns and would definitely make all of them!!

    Kerri Mitchell on August 8, 2018
  • I love the intricacy and details needed for little quilts – they are definitely “so sweet”! I’m looking forward to adding this special book to my collection.

    Belinda K-N on August 8, 2018
  • Small quilts finish more quickly but need more care and precision

    —Gail on August 8, 2018
  • It is the simplicity as well as the speed, however there is one more thing, the size. With small items you can be constantly "redecorating" without any bother.

    —Kathy on August 8, 2018
  • Speedy, simple and sweet!

    —Carol on August 8, 2018
  • Little quilts are so speedy when compared to making a large bed quilt. They’re approachable and so I tend to work on smaller projects much more often, see progress in just an hour or two a day, and complete them in a reasonable time period. "Small Wonders" by Serena Boffa Soda takes little quilts to another level by employing embroidery and applique into the delightful projects. I absolutely love them all! Serena’s tiny stitches amaze me, and her attention to detail is lovely! Thank you, Martingale, for another wonderful give-away!

    —Linda B. on August 8, 2018

    —Jackie Lewis on August 8, 2018
  • I love tiny quilts because they can be used in so many places on a shelf, table, wall, doll bed, etc. and they are like mini large quilts. I can use tiny pieces of fabric and complete a whole quilt. The tiny objects in small wonders make it especially fun and tells us to stop and take time to enjoy life.

    —Darliss Peabody on August 8, 2018
  • I love the small quilts because I have 8 grandchildren and they each love their own small quilt to just wrap up in. And I let them pick their theme and colors.

  • So sweet!

    —Martha Henrichs on August 8, 2018
  • What can I say that hasn’t been said already except that I love these cute mini quilts. I love that they have such cute little scenes and the way that they’re incorporated into a table topper or quilt. I like the way they stand out in them. I’ve been sewing since I was a little girl. Now I’m 78 and still sewing. My grandmother and mom crocheted beautiful tablecloths. My mom also made wedding dresses of which I was a very proud owner of one when I married. I started with what was called Swedish Embroidery. Sitting on the porch in the 40’s and stitching is one of my very fond memories. I knit, quilt, embroider and paint. I will proudly buy the book if I don’t win it – I’m never lucky in winning anything so I’m planning on buying it soon. Thank you for the opportunity!

    Arlene Kuchcik on August 8, 2018
  • So sweet. They usually fill up a space that needs a little something and provide lots of interest. Also, easy to take along to work on when traveling if handwork is involved in making your little quilt.

    —Amy Cofer on August 8, 2018
  • Small does not always mean fast or easy – in fact some are very detailed. But small definitely has an appeal for sweetness and being easy to display/store. Serena’s designs are lovely.

    —Mona on August 8, 2018
  • I like how small quilts are easily managed and make a large impact for a small piece. Plus, I don’t have a lot of wall space in my house, so I can hang more of them!! These, especially will be good to do, as they involve hand work and I need more of that.

    —Mary Fogleman on August 8, 2018
  • I like small projects because they are versatile, useful for totes, pillows, hangings, place mats, and don’t take up much room.

    —Betty nelson on August 8, 2018
  • I have never seen anyone work in this style before and I love it! This is something I would definitely do. The are fast and easy to use for decorating.

    —Barbara on August 8, 2018

    —Sunnybec on August 8, 2018
  • I started sewing at about six years old. I loved watching my mom do Embriodery so I had to learn so I could make pretty things too. Which lead to other types of sewing, i.e. mending, replacing buttons, and making my own clothes in high school. In my 40’s I started quilting and paper piecing. My interest in paper piecing was it’s portability since my husband travels for his job. Our guild is having a miniature category planned for next year so this couldn’t have come at a more perfect time😀 Also making small wall hanging is so satisfying. Love your ideas – so beautiful.

    —Denise Campbell on August 9, 2018
  • I think that with all the simplicity, sweetness, speed and intricacies… comes another word to describe these tiny wonders.
    And it is one that when people see tiny things, it sets them apart in another world of elite works of art. In order to do tiny things such as these, I believe it takes a nack & steadiness to get that smooth seam & precise Lil French Knot Judy right, or maybe adding your own lil Stitch in there to bring it to completeness. But the word I’m thinking of here is precise Delicateness elaborate! Just like a tiny babies dress that has French smocking on the front, and then painstakingly embroidered little details that make the whole dress just come to life! Wether it be flowers or a Little scene of ducks in & around a small pond! The grace these tiny stitches gives to their subject, wether a table runner or small quilt, gives words & meaning to the art of her craft. And Serena has done an explicit job of rendering a perfect art form! Thank you Serena.

Your unique ideas are beaut iful, and awe inspiring. My mind immediately went to several possibilities from tree skirts, to baby gifts, momento’s, to added spice for a dull spot. Love the cuteness and originality. Thanks for a moment of bliss. Hope to be able to finish several for Christmas gifts.

    —Ola K Norman on August 10, 2018
  • What a delightful book. I love the little sheep – they make me smile. The Simple Life Table Runner picture made me think of the ‘old timey’ sampler that a young girl would sit and learn how to stitch upon. I was taught that way and developed a love for sewing. This book is different than any other miniature quilting book. The blocks come together in such a different way with circles, hexagons, etc. ‘Sew Creative’. This is a book that will be used by many who just want to slow down and enjoy the process. Just lovely.

    —Cathy Wilson on August 10, 2018
  • I love the detail in these quilts! Much faster to finish than a bed size. I’d love to win the book.

    —Gwen H on August 10, 2018
  • So simple. Sometimes you just want to sew, but want quick results. I have been making tiny art quilts because you don’t really have to think about them too much. However making something with a theme appeals to me, so i will be making some tiny pictures in the near future. Your work is an inspiration.

    —Cynthia Maki on August 10, 2018
