    A few years ago I subscribed to a magazine called 'Miniature Quilts'. It was wonderful, but sadly went out of business. Do any of you know of a similar publication?

    Nothing on miniature magazines, but this is a great site to check out w/just about anything you're looking for: softexpressions.com. I already checked there and at ericas.com. Both are good sites to look at. You might do an int'l search. I can bet Australia probably has one. :wink: :lol: 8) :roll:

    I would have thought that there would be several of these magazines, since miniatures are so popular in everything... :?

    I think New Zealand has a miniature quilt magazine, if it hasn't gone out of business yet.

    I just thought about France. They have some featured with doll accessories and I think it's for doll enthusiasts and accessories.

    I enjoyed the Miniature Quilts Magazine, have several issues. Paper piecing is especially helpful for miniatures.

    Not exactly what you are looking for, but I happen to have a 79 page book called "Little Quilts: All Through the House" that I am willing to sell if you are interested. Authors are Alice Berg, Mary Ellen VonHolt and Sylvia Johnson. Put out by That Patchwork Place. I paid $21.95 for the book (as per back cover). It is in mint condition, since I never really used it. I am willing to sell it for $10 plus shipping.

    I found a few issues for sale at my local library today. Should you find another source for more magazines, would you please post here?

    I'm working with 4.5" blocks right now and am looking to start smaller work with my scraps. The issues I bought were published in 1991 & 1992.

    Thank you.

    Can I come and be apart of your guild? I love doing the small stuff too. The Spring 1989 issue of Miniature Quilts was my first exposure to small quilts. I made one, cut a couple more out, but never sewed them, but kept picking up copies of the magazine. It was almost 15 years later when I got excited about making things small. The "Little Quilt" gals from Marietta, GA got me going again and I have referred to that first magazine as well as the others over and over again. The later issues tend toward more PP which is not enjoyable for me to do. About 4 years ago I tried making blocks with 3/4" pieces (a 9P), just to see if I could and I am totally hooked. Make sure you check the miniature section here on the board and with Rhonda's posts. She does beautiful work.

    Hi Kellie! No, I sure don't. Someone wanted to buy the whole lot of 30 of them so I sold them to her. I've seen some around. Let me find the links for you and I'll post them here. There are 2 places I've seen them pretty cheap, both being online shops. Also, it's best not to post your email addy online due to security issues. If you want to give someone your email, simply send them a PM (private message) by clicking on their name, then click on 'send PM' and to receive a PM, simply click on it whenever it is lit up in 'yellow highlight' at the top of this page. Will get back with you on this. Thank you for your interest! n2

    Ok, I found the online auction site has 4 Min.Q. mags for $4.00~! A great buy. I couldn't remember the name but just found it! It's called IOffer and there was one other site I'll see if I can find. Here's the link for IOffer:

    http://www.ioffer.com/i/66046106

    Also, there may be other offers on this site, but I stopped when I found this one. n2.

    In just looking at ebay, I found right many ads listed. Here's one of an '89 issue for $3.00 which is not too bad. Here's the link:

    Hope this helps! n2

    They were sold right away as soon as I posted. Someone wanted all 30 of them I had so they bought the whole lot. But in the previous posts, I show links to some on ebay if they haven't sold already, I'm sure there are new posts by now. You might check there and at the other links I provided. Good luck in your search!
    ;) ;) :D
