You would think that making a miniature quilt would be a snap. It can be. But you would be surprised how many hours can go into a miniature that is meant to go to shows. I've spent months piecing quilts that are no larger than 16" square. This is the largest "miniature" I have ever made. It is 21 1/2" square. And the blocks are 3".
One of the best things about making a mini is the blocking process
It was hard to get a good photo.. don't worry, the border is cropped. Looks uneven but it isn't and the photo brought out the subtle blue in the solid blocks enough that it is hard to see the quilting.
I've had this quilt in my mind for a long time. It is for someone else, and I don't think I will make another for myself. I will have to think of another use for the fabrics.
Have a good weekend!
