I'm currently infatuated with making mini quilts for small doll and teddy bear displays. I was prompted to do this when I found a teddy bear bed made by Boyd's that is darling but TINY. So I investigated what it would take to make a very small quilt, and now, here I am eight quilts later and planning more in my head as we speak!
Here are what I've made so far. Three of them are in vignettes that I didn't want to disassemble so the photos are of more than the quilt, but you can see the details. The quilts are about 10" x 12", or 10" x 10" to 11" x 11". The piecing is difficult working that small because the seam allowances are so thick they distort the quilt somewhat. I'm learning more as I progress.
Now, here's the show:
A log cabin with 3/8" wide strips. This might be my favorite:
These quilts only consist of top and backing, no batting since it would make them too stiff to drape over a doll bed or small quilt rack. If I wanted to display them hanging I would have used batting. I've started eyeing those small standing display racks that hold a quilt up to 12" square. Hmm............
