World’s Smallest Quilts


I created these quilts in 1985 and they were documented in Quilters Newsletter in 1986. In this photo you may be seeing them life size or larger depending on your computer screen.



The above article is clickable to see a larger version that you can actually read.
It's hard to believe I made these 30 years ago. Where does the time go?
In the smallest quilt the strips are 1/42nd of an inch wide. The quilts have a very thin layer of batting, are hand quilted and have the narrowest binding possible. They are real traditional quilts made in a block format, rather than a single block or an embroidered quilt.

Oh I love miniature quilts! These are darling, the Roman Stripes pattern is a favourite of mine.

I have a bunch of old issues of now-defunct miniature quilt magazines and I still enjoy looking through them.
