    and I can start to put my bears in their beds. Well, after cleaning up the biggest mess ever!
    I made the experience that not all patterns work at this scale. Best are the once that can be done as 1" squares. To sew 3/4" stripes together accurately is very hard (like friendship star :wink: )
    the minis are 6" finished size.

    others....

    They are so wonderful!!!! Beautiful work and worth the mess (well, "I" don't have to clean it all up, though).

    Each one is pretty. I think we all make a mess when we are working on a project, it comes hand in hand I guess.

    Wow I cannot believe how much work that would take. They look amazing. What is the pattern called with the red and white triangles (stars?) It is so pretty. Actually I really love them all

    And what are you going to do with this quilt when you are done? I think I saw one of these finished on here before? Did you make that one too? With so much work into it I would almost want to keep it for myself instead of giving it to a little one :)

    T--these are so awe inspiring. Your work is exquisite, your color selection incredible. You are the Queen of PP and miniatures here on the board! G


    OBTW--small pieces = small scraps = small mess to clean up, Yeah, right?

    These are amazing! What will you do with them now? Do you plan to display them? Piece them all together? They are so cool. I'm sure the pictures don't do them justice.

    Wow, that is a very beautiful quilt.

    What are the measurements of the mini's and the final size of the quilt overall?

    To sew 3/4" stripes together accurately is very hard (like friendship star .

    Can't wait to see this one!

    Okay these are just the cutest little quilts! I just can't stand it! You did a fabulous job. My favorite would be the hearts. I would love to see close up pics of each of the bears in the bed. Where did you get this pattern? Its just the cutest thing!!!!

    These are wonderful! Makes me want to make a mini again. My favorite is the little house with the leaning tree. Looks like a Christmas block? Where did you get the pattern or what book did you get it out of?
