    No I don't think so. I'll go look it up. I think it is a 4 x 4.
    This is the center of a doll quilt I made for the doll quilt swap several months ago. I love samplers can't you tell? This was the second one I did for the doll quilt swap.
    The hardest part wasn't making the blocks it was deciding how to put the sashing. I arranged and rearranged a dozen or more times. It is also the first time I ever used any embellishments. I added 2 little heart buttons and the bow. Not alot but my first try at it.

    the rules of the swap are anything between 12" and 24" in any shape such as circle or rectangle etc. I think this one was 14" x 18" or there abouts.

    As for a mini that is matter of personal perception. I have seen people call a quilt a mini at 36" x 36". It is all in how you view it. I prefer to keep mine under 14" because they are easier to quilt down. I am not good at that part and the smaller it is the easier it is for me to handle turning it under the needle and less bulk to deal with. I got frustrated with one I did that was 18" because I am not used to having to move bulk around. I kept having to rearrange and move the excess and that frustrates me. One of the reasons I will never do a full size quilt again.

    Here's the whole quilt

    Yep, when I did my granddaughters quilts there was so much shoving and pulling and my shoulders hurts for days. So I'm making smaller ones. Although I have my day bed cover and two others that I am just making blocks and I'll put them together. Then I'll decide what and how I want to quilt it. Hate sending them out, costs more than I can really afford for the number of quilts I'm making.

    I love this. I'm going to have to start trying to make miniatures. I did figure out how to make "thinking outside the block" yesterday. I used 1 1/2" strips. I should have gone smaller like 1". But I wouldn't have even tried to figure it out if it wasn't for my #1 teacher......

    I hope to get back into the swaps someday. I had to bow out for awhile as I haven't had the time to do them.
    They are fun!!

    Rhonda:
    Loving your new avatar. Is it a mini? I've been out of pocket for a while. You have probably had it up for a while.

    It was one of the doll quilts I made for the doll quilt swap earlier this year. The individual quilt blocks are def minis. There are the 4 x 4s and then some are just a couple of blocks sewn together and stuck in there to balance the quilt blocks. Look up above where I showed the whole quilt. It was I think about 14" x 18" with the borders.

    Actually Doug I just put it up a couple of days ago. I get tired of looking at the same thing all the time. But I don't want to change it too fast as some have a hard time finding me if I keep changing too often.

    I never really paid any attention to how blocks were made. I would just look at the entire quilt and if I liked it, I'd make it. (with pattern) Because of what you taught me, I now look at every quilt block and see just how its made. This wasn't your design, but a few months back when I first saw someone on here who had just finished one, I thought I couldn''t do that. But not only did I do it, I did it without a pattern. You taught me how to look at quilts and how easy a lot of patterns really are. :mrgreen:

    Thanks Katie I am glad I helped you see the construction and not just the overall look. That is one of the things I have been trying to get across. You can look at traditional quilt blocks and "see" how they are made. Some of them can be made using my methods instead of the traditinal trace and cut. I love it when a "student" gets it!
