    I used French Braid Quilts by Jane Hardy Miller. Sorry about how this thread came thru, but I was just trying to figure out how to do this and didn't think it would really go thru. With this pattern I just cut the size down to 1/4 the size it calls for. I like to make my mini's from regular patterns, just smaller.

    Grand job. It looks adorable.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    I love it! Your fabric placement makes the quilt radiate. Are the cornerstones 1/4" finished?

    Yes the corner stones are 1/2". Yes I figured it out for one time.
    Love your log cabin you have in your greeting picture. I found it in the miniature page. So small. I love it!

    Thanks, almond. Like you I make my own designs by taking a larger idea and downsizing--so does jillnjo. Often when I start mine, I use "precut" pieces--in other words leftovers in my scrap bins ranging from 3/4" to 2". I never know how they will turn out or what colors I will be using. I very seldom cut pieces to make a specific design. You could say they are all scrappy.
