    I have a dollshouse, and of course my dolls are quilters, too. ;-)
    So "they" created some little quilts during the last years.

    Some little bags (around 1.25 x 1.75 inches), because dolls need stylish bags, too. ;)

    I just browsed through the "miniature" section and found other miniature enthusiast! That makes me really happy! :-D

    Oh wow, very impressive. I like to do small quilts, but I have not tried a true miniature yet.

    I especially like the little trees and houses and the railroad crossing one.

    Wow! I am completely in awe!! If no one has ever tried to work in small scale they may not realize just how careful you have to be and how difficult it can be. Any mistake is highly magnified when working so small and your work is just lovely. I am so impressed!!

    What is your favorite tip or secret when working so small?

    Thank you so much! Iīm happy that you like my minis.

    The paper piecing definitively helps a lot to sew precisely. If you really sew on the lines, it canīt go terribly wrong.
    I leave the paper in until I sewed the blocks together, and take it out when the top is done. For me itīs easier this way.
