Quilt 2018: Miniature Quilts

1

At the beginning of the year, you made a list of all the quilt making techniques you’d like to try in 2018 and put them in a jar. Then, you chose your own personal color of the year. You are ready!

If you missed last month’s project, check it out. We created Baltimore Album quilts.

Our style for this month is Miniature. Miniature quilts can be made in any style, but are characterized by their small size, generally 24” or smaller. Often miniature quilts recreate or simulate a regular sized quilt at a reduced scale.

Let’s take a look at miniatures in each style we’ve already explored during Quilt 2018…

Spring Stroll by Charlotte Noll showcases optical illusion.

Rollin’ on the River by Karen Kretchmar showcases landscape.

My Persian Version by George Siciliano showcases medallion.

Electric Rainbow by Caryl Brix showcases traditional bed quilt.

Chicken Vermeer by Jennifer Day showcases pictorial.

English Cottage by Karen Turnbull showcases broderie perse.

Mini Lone Star by Karna Lackey showcases single design.

Double Spaced by Bill Kerr & Weeks Ringle showcases modern.

Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend by Melissa Bieman showcases one-patch.

Chasing Liberty by Teri Barile showcases two-block design.

Cherry Blossom by Vicki Spiering showcases Baltimore Album.

We’ve shown you some fun miniature quilts. Truly no style is off limits so long as it is scaled down. 

Draw your technique from your jar, think about clever ways to play with your color of the year, and start creating.

Next week we’ll dive into construction ideas.

Give us a shout in the comments below letting us know your technique of choice or share with us on our Facebook group AQS Project Parade.

Let’s get started!
