    I wondered why so many enjoyed making miniatures and now I know! :-) Yep! I'm hooked and plan on making some others for Christmas gifts. This one is made from the fabric Grandma gave me so I'm going to have it framed and hang it in my sewing room. That way when I'm in there working on a project Grandma will be making sure I do everything right. ;-) Lily, my supervisor, fell asleep on the job and and I now have pictures to prove it. LOL!!

    May I ask where you've found your patterns?

    What a precious mini! And to have fabric from your G'ma makes it even more so. What size are your squares?

    I make lots of miniatures and usually come up with patterns on my own. I was first inspired with the Minature Quilts magazine years ago but it's no longer in print.

    Some sources for larger patterns
    1. The "Little Quilts" ladies from Marietta, GA have several publications. http://www.littlequilts.com/
    2. Lori Smith--http://www.frommyhearttoyourhands.com/Qstore/Qstore.cgi
    3. Kathleen Tracy--http://www.countrylanequilts.com/
    4. Darlene Zimmerman--http://www.feedsacklady.com/

    You did a great job! How nice to have such a sweet and beautiful handmade piece in your sewing room to remind you of your Grandmother! Thanks for sharing!

    I like "Confusion". Think that will be my next project to use up some more of the fabric I have from Grandma. :thumbup: I have 2 boxes from her and there are no pieces large enough to make a regular size quilt. Thanks for the ideas. :-)

    Did you have a pattern for this? If so, what is it called? I am wanting to make a variety of mini quilts to hang in my office at work and I love this one. Please let me know if you had a pattern or not. Thanks.
