More Miniatures

Sparkle Plenty is a log cabin quilt made with 1/4 inch finished strips. The center square of each block is copper lame. The inner border is also copper lame and is less than 1/8" wide. It was a challenge making sure the same fabric was used on the correct side of adjoining blocks. This quilt has won a lot of awards.
It is 9 1/2 x 11 inches.

This miniature Amish Bars quilt is 7 1/2 inches square. It has a black background which the majority of my miniature quilts do. Many Amish quilts use black as a background color. If you have a group of colors and you need something that will look good with all of them you can hardly go wrong if you choose black.

Tonight you can go to my museum and do a Sparkle Plenty puzzle with people in the museum viewing it.

Having grown up near Amish Country in Penna, I have a special fondness for their quilts. Lovely, thanks.

The copper lame really shines doesn't it?

I really like the Sparkle Plenty quilt and hope to try something like that soon. You do such a nice job on these little quilts.
