    Beautiful work! I have become very interested in minis after going to a mini gallery show a few weeks ago. I keep thinking it would be a great way to use up scraps from larger quilts I've made; colours already co-ordinated, and a "souvenir" I guess of a quilt I've given away.
    Where do you source patterns? Are you aware of any books that would be good to get me started?
    Any help would be great.

    Those fabrics are so rich. How big does a mini measure?

    I'm sorry, I should have posted before that it measures 16" square. There are rules as to what constitutes a true mini, and I don't know them. I have several books that I've gotten from my DMIL that have mini quilt patterns in them and I've purchased two from a LQS that were authored by Elizabeth H. Carlson. I got the Miniature Medley and Traditions in Miniature after seeing the Christmas one made up at the shop. I did the Lonestar which finished just under 10", and then made another one a little larger which finished at 16 1/2". I'll post photos of those here as well. Here is a link to her website:

    Thanks for all the compliments, Helen

    I can't get the link to work so you'll need to copy and paste it into your browser. Sorry!

    Here are the other two. Enjoy, Helen

    The first one is the 16 1/2" one and the second picture of the first one shows the true color better. It has something to do with the flash and the lighting. The blue one is the smallest at just under 10" and I made it for a block lotto at a retreat I went to. I have two other minis I've made but I've not photographed them yet.
