Lessons Learned making
A Quilt in Miniature
This one was a challenge for me.
Although I had made a few small quilts, I have never attempted to make a quilt in miniature.
And that is what I set out to do.
This quilt is designed suing Electric Quilt – EQ7 computer software.
That’s the easy part of the project.
The finished size of this quilt is 18″ with 4″ blocks.
I had hoped to have this done by the end of March as part of the Island Batik Mini Madness theme of the month.
I Laugh because it was a silly notion.
It’s not perfect, many of my tiny squares came out rectangular.
The only thing I can offer you with this quilt.
- It is an exercise.
- It is fitness for your quilting skills.
- It takes some patience to work in miniature.
- creative inspiration
My expectations were that this quilt would be a breeze to make because it was small.
That was just plain crazy!
Even my preferred quilting method was challenged; with many of the seams so close together, it hindered the flow of my work. A different style of machine quilting would have worked better.
The Finished Quilt with a changed layout.
- Small and tiny pieces = a slow process that can’t be rushed.
- It is time consuming but well worth the time and effort.
- It can only improve your quilting skills.
Please take a moment and share your thoughts on quilting in miniature.
