    I have a dollshouse, and of course my dolls are quilters, too. ;-)
    So "they" created some little quilts during the last years.

    Some little bags (around 1.25 x 1.75 inches), because dolls need stylish bags, too. ;)

    I just browsed through the "miniature" section and found other miniature enthusiast! That makes me really happy! :-D

    Oh wow, very impressive. I like to do small quilts, but I have not tried a true miniature yet.

    I especially like the little trees and houses and the railroad crossing one.

    Wow! I am completely in awe!! If no one has ever tried to work in small scale they may not realize just how careful you have to be and how difficult it can be. Any mistake is highly magnified when working so small and your work is just lovely. I am so impressed!!

    What is your favorite tip or secret when working so small?

    Thank you so much! Iīm happy that you like my minis.

    The paper piecing definitively helps a lot to sew precisely. If you really sew on the lines, it canīt go terribly wrong.
    I leave the paper in until I sewed the blocks together, and take it out when the top is done. For me itīs easier this way.

    Whoa!!! Those are absolutely amazing! I am stunned that you can make such beautiful works in such a tiny size! Very awesome. :) I used to have a 'miniature house' (I never called it a doll house, lol) and I know I would've had a kitten over these back then!

    Steffi they are -- I hate this overworked word but it applies here -- they are amazing!!! I can't begin to imagine how difficult it is to work on such a small scale. Your quilters have a wonderful sense of color and they are very talented. Really enjoyed your photos.

    So tiny and cute. Saw a demo on paper piecing the other day and it didn't look as hard as I thought. This woman used tracing paper from Staples. Gotta try it!

    I am very very impressed with these! I had no idea it was even possible to produce quilts this size. Do you have to get special finer fabrics? The seam allowance would be bigger than the piece! And your seams and points look so accurate. I adore them all! Please keep posting pictures of your work.

    Wow, you are so very talented! Your miniatures are perfect. I love your guild meetings,lol,where the dolls are showing off their new treasures, for surely they are treasures. Thank you for sharing.

    One question "do you wear magnifying glasses when you make these little jewels?

    WOW! I am speechless! I have problems with 1 inch pieces in a 6 inch block, LOL!

    I always wanted a big, beautiful dollhouse. I never had one as a child.

    I did buy a kit that is from the 60's at a thrift store. Its beautiful! I will be putting it together soon, and making some things for it. I hope you don't mind if I pm you?
