    I have been looking at everyone's Doll quilts and I decided to share a mini wall hanging I made several years ago. I was doing everything by hand then and doing alot of what I call micro mini work. The quilt measures 26" square and the sampler blocks are 2" square. I was making billfolds back then by hand and my blocks within each mini quilt were usually 3/4" unfinished and 1/4" finished. So I love samplers and decided to take what I was doing on the billfolds and use it on a sampler. Tho the blocks in the pieced quilt blocks here are more 5/8".
    I don't do this much anymore -I do everything on my antique Singer now so I don't do it quite this small anymore.

    I have shown these before but thought I would include them for the newer members to see.
    These are billfolds I used and they show the wear and tear but I wanted to share some of what I used to make.

    Here is another one. Again it shows wear and tear and they have long since been retired to a keepsake.

    Hi Muffins yes I think any of my "blocks" are easy enough for a beginner. The steps are easy and then you just need to join blocks together into a Quilt Block. You can use any size template.
    I would suggest you try one of my free tutorials to see if you like the methods. and then you will have an idea of what is involved before you buy anything.
    If you have any questions I am usually here to answer. I love sharing what I do with other quilters and I wanted to show people how easy and great these shortcuts are!

    If you haven't signed up - you can sign up for Konstatin's(admin) newsletter Quilted Paradise. You will see a link above for the newsletter.
    There are lots of great free info and lots of good projects to try!

    Sorry Muffins I didn't answer all of your question. To order you click on the banner and it will take you to the sales page. Then Konstatin sends you a link and you can download the EBook from this link. Then you can print out the EBook. I have printed out the book for a couple of people who had problems getting it to download but generally you do it on your printer. If you need anything just let me or Admin-Konstatin know and one of us will help!

    LOL It won't be quite this small of work but I used to make diaper bags back then and I made a quilt with this size blocks and snapped the quilt on the diaper bag from the front to the back so the quilt went over the opening and laid close to the bag. This was for a changing pad that could be unsnapped and used. I don't do the hand work like that anymore. I don't have the time it takes to do those.
    Thanks I am glad you like them. I have a thing about challenging myself to do smaller and smaller things. I get bored so easily!!

    Here are some hearts I make. I like to see how small I can go. The ones in the circle are give or take 1" and the one in the middle is about 3/4"
    I make cloth hearts every year for valentine's day and my mom likes to give them as gifts. Plus she and I have them in wooden trays for decoration.

    Thanks Joanne! My motto is quilting is for sharing!!! I was raised to share with friends and anyone you could help. I get a lot of satisfaction in helping others. It isn't about money all the time it is about the art and the friendships it generates!!!
    I am so glad you like my work. It feeds my ego!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
    Makes me feel good about myself that I did something right. That is the payoff for me. I tell people if I never sold another thing I would still be quilting. It feeds my soul!! I have to quilt!! It is an extension of me. I am sending out little bits of me in everything I make.
    Even if noone knows who made the things I have sold- even if everything I have made falls apart - I know I have brightened someone's day and shared the beauty and that is so important to me.
