    Miniatures - Easy Patterns & Ideas

    Can anyone recommend a web site, book or magazine on miniature wall hangings, quilts or other items that I might use to starting learning to make miniatures? i think I would like to try these! I would appreciate any suggestions.

    I just did a Google search and came up with these selections:

    There was an older episode of F&P and their guest speaker just made blcoks a little larger than after pressing them, she trim them down. She also mentioned to slow down to achieve accuracy. There is also a monthly "Quilters Magazine "Bitty Blocks"". You might want to sign up for the thread:

    I love doing minis. Ask friends to save their scraps. You will be suprised at how small a piece ypu can use. Several friends save ehat would otherwise be thrown out for me and then they are amazed at what I do with them.

    You might try searching on Pinterest using their search box. There are also pincushions, needlecases, doll quilts etc.

    I use the book "501 Quilt Blocks " by Better Homes and Gardens. I got mine 2nd hand from Amazon. Think I paid like $5.00. It has every imaginable quilt block in 4" size you can ever want. I have used it a lot.
    Good luck!

    The 501 quilt blocks by Better Homes and Gardens has all 4" patterns of everything imaginable. I use it all of the time. Lots of visual helps also.
    I got mine from Amazon--2nd hand. Think I paid$5.00 for it; well worth the money.
