First Attempt in Miniature Quilting


After visiting the Washington State Quilt show last October (see the previous post) I caught myself on a thought that I have to try making a quilt in miniature. I always admired the quilts in real life size and always thought this is something I personally just don't have any patience for, and I don't, it is true. I've never in my life finished any real size quilt and don't have any skills for it. However, the desire to try it in miniature was so big that I picked up some fabric, cut little paper squares and,


using paper piecing method, hand sewn all squares together.



My first miniature quilt is finished. It is out of scale, each square measures 1/2", but it was my practice piece and Hank admires it.
