Make Mine Mini: 13 Miniature Quilts from Traditional to Contemporary by Christine Carlson
Scaled-down versions of their full-sized quilt counterparts, the mini-quilts featured in this book provide quilters with the perfect opportunity to explore creative options for block settings. Unlike a full-size quilt that is best viewed from a distance, the intricate details of a miniature quilt encourage viewers to take a closer look; and crafting miniature quilts satisfies the quilter's need to complete a quilt quickly, making them perfect for gift-giving. The fabric requirements are much less than full-size quilts, so miniature quilts are ideal for stash or scrap quilting. Classic quilt designs are explored in a miniature setting, many with fresh new fabric combinations. The easy-to-follow instructions in this book will have quilters completing designs in no time, creating projects such as Log Cabin Pineapple, Nine-Patch Floral Garden, Amish Bars, Spools Variation, Homecoming, Dainty Baskets, and Kaleidoscope.
