I'm very interested in miniature quilts, but I've only made one so far. You can see it at the link below. I have my fabric ready to make another mini, but I haven't started piecing it yet. Have you made any? If so, please, please post pictures. :D :D

I like miniature quilts too. I have fabric for a kitty quilt but the pattern in my miniature quilts mag has been lost in my box room (a summer project - to tackle that one). Hee Hee this was before I learned to paper piece so I cut all the pattern pieces out and couldn't figure how these itty bitty pieces were supposed to go together... oops... know better now... lol. I like the minature quilts bc they can be sooo detailed even though they're so small...

Melissa - I want to make a quilt for myself like the one in the picture. It was a Christmas gift, and when I made it, I cut out enough fabric to make two. I'm not sure what pattern I'll make after I finish that.

Barbsbus - Thanks. It is paper pieced. I really enjoy paper piecing and I think the miniature quilts are easier to do with that technique.

There are a couple other posts with pictures of miniature quilts, but I'm not sure who posted them.

I love miniture quilts....but I have found that the cutting seems to be as long as a full size quilt ....HAHA!
