Miniature Quilts

 It was fun to hang out these miniature quilts as part of the Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival "Hang Out" days.

L-R, a mini heart log cabin, and a daffodil stitched as a test block for a larger quilt. Third from the left is a miniature version of Maritime Beauty, the class I am teaching today. I think the blocks are 2". The colourful one is made from silk shirts purchased at Frenchy's, and the red and white is a mini version of X and O. The Amish nine-patch is from my early days, as it's hand quilted. The beauty on the right is an exquisite piece made by my exchange partner Terry McCloskey in 2018. We took part in an International Miniature Quilt Exchange organized by The Quilt Show. Terry's quilt is all hand-pieced and quilted with tiny stitches, and features the most perfect mitred corners I've seen. I admire Terry's workmanship a great deal.


  1. What a wonderful collection of miniatures, Karen! I am enjoying your "Hang Out" days.
