    I re-sized the full-size Fon's & Porter Chatanooga Choo-Choo pattern to make My Little Rocky Road (16" x 22") for a Fon's & Porter 2004 Mini Challenge Contest. I made it scrappy to force myself "out-of-the-box" for me and used Civil War Reproduction fabrics. When I made this I was a beginning quilter. It was not paperpieced or strip pieced (should have counted all those squares). The center area is machine quilted, and the border is hand quilted.

    The second quilt was machine pieced, hand appliqued, and hand quilted. The plates are made from 1930's (? & 1940's) fabric I won on eBay. Measures 16 1/2" x 20 1/2"

    OBW can be done in mini and this was one of the samples I used in a class I taught in one of my Miniature Quilt Club meetings.

    You did a great job on the minis. I especially like what you did with the OBW. I like the way you separated the blocks.

    You have done a beautiful job with all three of them. They are wonderful eye candy.

    To add to the Mini virtual section-click on the tab "Add topic" at the top of your thread just above your first post.
