Miniature Quilts Galore ! part 2

Miniature quilts are some of the most fun projects we've seen.  In these quilts the traditional blocks are reduced to a fraction of their traditional size. They are technically challenging, visually intriguing, and much easier to display than a regular quilt!

Log Cabin Village by Joy Palmer (California)

This contemporary miniature Log Cabin Village puts a modern twist on a very traditional block! We love the way Joy Palmer nestled the tiny log cabin blocks in a gorgeous blue field.  

The maker and quilter says, "Many early Americans lived in log cabins and managed to exist by using everything in all possible ways until it was completely worn out.  This log cabin village is made from thrift store silks, all of which had a prior life as something else.  To add interest to the image, I used minimal pieced blocks supported by similar structures in the quilting."

The abundant negative space gave Joy Palmer plenty of room to create quilting designs, ranging from traditional (feathers) to stacked right angles that echo the log cabin design.
