    Hi welcome to the board. There used to be a publication just for minis but I don't think it is around any more. There are some PP patterns on the net for minis. I have found a pineapple and snails tail 3" mini blocks for free on the net. Here is a link.

    I make lots of minis by resizing the standard block (i.e. a 12 or 10 " block) to the smaller proportions and take if from there. How small do you want to go? Are you interested in standard piecing or paper piecing?

    Look for Rhonda here on the board. She does minis and has e-books and a great website on how to do them.

    I'm looking for 4"-5" blocks. I'm not really into piecing. I'm a beginner to quilting. I didn't know if I could take the cuttings for a 8" or 9" block and just cut them in 1/2. thanks

    Hi! I'm from southern Minnesota. I'm new to quilting and computors. I'm starting out doing table runners and wall-hangings. The project I'm working on now is very special to me.I started this about 2 years ago when I was diagnosed with Ovarion cancer. It is redwork panels of snowmen. I don't want it as large as the patttern is,so I'm getting ideas how to finish it smaller. I want to be creative,that's why I'm looking for the mini patterns. I have visions of snowflakes... thanks

    Welcome to the board! I am a miniaturist. I have shortcuts I use to get intricate looks in my minis. I have lots of quilt blocks I have designed. I use a 1 1/2" template to make a 6 1/2" quilt block but I also use 1 1/4" and 1" templates. If you are interested in looking here are the links for the Topics Lists
