Small Quilts


Okay, there are small quilts, miniature quilts and then there are tiny quilts!  Have you made a quilt for a doll?  Or even a small quilt?

There is a Small Quilt group on Facebook and Yahoo.  I joined because I'm fascinated with small quilts.  I did make one (1) small quilt--Amish style--and the dog took a bite out of it!!  it was just too small, but it was perfect for a little girl that visited our house often--that would be our granddaughter!  Years ago we had a miniature quilt workshop when I was Education Curator at Historic Plantation.  We had Tina Gravatt in as our mentor.  Tina makes miniature doll house quilts!  I was blown away with her work!  Her pieces are authentic to antique quilts.  We had a fun time together--

Sentimental Quilter has some wonderful small quilt patterns.  Check her out!

Shop with Us

Temecula Quilt Company is one of my favorite websites to visit!  I wish I could visit her shop, but she offers free patterns often for small quilts.  I made the alphabet small quilt blocks--not assembled yet though.

Small Quilts and Doll Quilts is a place for small quilt lovers!  Follow along with this group.
