Here's a little tutorial explaining the process of my mini quilt:
I used water soluble glue, sparingly, to secure the doily to the linen. Then I sewed the doily around the edges with matching thread. I didn't secure in the center, but you certainly could if it needed it.
After that I spray basted the quilt sandwich and hand stitched the little mini.
I used some Liberty of London fabric for the binding. Very simple and easy.
This mini quilt is 12 X 12 inches.
