2017-9 Storm at Sea Miniature Quilt



This little quilt was made last spring to enter in the fall fair in the miniature quilt category.  It was fun to do, but I have decided that the next one I do will be paper pieced.  So much easier to achieve accuracy with paper piecing!  I quilted this on my domestic machine, stitch in the ditch technique with a walking foot, using Navy  Bottom Line in both the bobbin and on top.  Because the thread is so fine, it sinks right into the ditch, disappearing while giving surface texture.    Finished size is 10 inches by 14 inches.

In my imagination, a future grandchild will value this as a doll quilt.  I sure hope Ipads do not replace dolls!



2013-23: Miniature Whitework Quilt

Whitework Miniature Quilt

This  doll sized quilt is made to resemble a traditional whitework wholecloth quilt.  The designs are Barbara’s Feather’s by Donna Klienke of One Song Needle Arts.  It is quilted with a very fine thread called Bottom Line both on top and in the bobbin.

It was fun to make!  Maybe someday I will have a granddaughter to whom I can give this little delight!

Project 2011-13: Doll Quilt

Doll Quilt

This tiny quilt was made from four patch blocks left over from a music themed quilt I made for my brother-in-law.

I like to keep my sewing room clean of left-overs, so I quickly assembled the blocks, used a scrap of batting and backed it with a coordinating scrap of cotton sheeting.  It was quilted with a grid stitch on my domestic sewing machine.  The whole project went together very quickly – less than two hours, including machine sewn binding.

I have no grandchildren yet, but someday, there will be a little girl visiting and I will be able to give this to her for her doll.  It feels good to have a stash of quilts from with which I can indulge my generous impulses!
