Small things amuse small minds



This little sweetie is just 12 1/2 inches - well it will be when it's finished. Each star block is only 3 inches.

It's a design by Ann Hermes and I used the lovely reproduction fabrics purchased at the quilt show. Ann uses snippets of vintage fabrics in her projects.

Thanks to some handy hints from Ann this quilt was easier to manage than my first effort.

I do like miniatures.

I have just discovered that Shabby Fabrics have a blog. I do like this shop and they have lots of lovely fabrics and projects.


Happy Stitching

  2. Ann, it's wonderful, I have never made anything small, its on my list of things to try, but not yet. I made those stars last month at 6 inches and wanted to scream! I need a new iron and more paitence I think =)

  6. Ann I love this little quilt.
    You did an amazing job. Because they are smaller, they are sometimes even more difficult.
    Will You frame it or finish it and hang it up?
    Just amazing.Great job.

  15. You've done a terrific job Ann, and the colours are gorgeous!

    I usually stay away from miniatures, getting those points right causes too much frustration! :D
