    Donation mini quilts

    I take my bits and pieces and make minis...
    The first two for our local hospital. The dolls measure 3" tall. The Log cabin is made from 3/4" logs.Name:  2016 .jpg

    These two for another fundraiser. The flying geese were paper pieced and measure 1 x 2" finished. The center square of the second is made from 4P measuring 1/2" finished and hand quilted

    I have yards of that doll print fabric. Didn't use because no idea how to design . Like your pattern.
    Have the clothing to put on dolls so should get to it in summer before it becomes an antique.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Wow! cool quilts. I don't think I'd have the patience (or the skill) to deal with those tiny pieces.

    PPrincess..I see you found this...I was going to let you know I posted this.

    Thanks everyone...for you moratorium followers, do you see why I don't need to buy anymore fabric?....it'll take me a millennium to use what I have at this rate....yikes...

    I've mentioned this in other mini threads, but I rarely cut dimensional pieces for the basic blocks. Yes my fabric bins are sorted as small as 3/4", 1".....I will mindlessly sew blocks and then decide what to do with them often using pieces from other
    sized bins for setting triangles, squares, borders and binding...

    Your quilts are so awesome and inspiration for me. I just started participating in the mini swap here on the QB and it is so much fun making really little quilts. I wish there was a special thread for minis just because they are special and your quilts are very special.
    peace
