It’s a Whiplash challenge! Miniature quilts for the month of May!
“A miniature quilt, otherwise known as ‘doll quilt‘, ‘fat quarter quilt’ or more simply ‘quarter quilt‘, can be made out of just about anything – try using scraps, or just a couple of fat quarters. There is no rule about the size of these, but usually small or miniature means not as big as a cot quilt, usually they are hung on walls, framed or used for a doll house. They can be practical – perhaps used as table mats or sewn into cushion covers. You could make them extra mini and turn into a greeting cards. Any sort of quilting method is suitable too, traditional patterns, random piecing, crazy quilting or journal quilting how about hand quilting a especially beautiful fabric. For more information check out a local miniature quilt guild near you.”
Looks like anything goes, as long as it’s a small quilt and not big enough to sleep under. Well, maybe a fairy could sleep under it! And to think that I just brought in two boxes of scraps from the Fabric Shed… better get started!
AHA moment – maybe you’d like to see some of my small quilts: Sporadic Packrat gallery.
