Miniature Quilts Galore! part 3

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!

Annabelle by Kellie Willey

 In our opinion, this little quilt is a masterpiece. Kellie Willey says, "I wanted to make quilt in honor of my Grandmother, Annabelle, who was a quilter.  She owned a velvet and satin crazy quilt and I decided to make a miniature version. Friends contributed velvet, taffetta and embellishments."

Kellie continues, "Most of the blocks were made using ties that belonged to my husband and my father.  Charms and buttons were collected during my travels and I found many of the stitching ideas online and in books."  Kellie is the owner of Little Quilt Creations; please visit her website for inspiration, lessons and patterns for miniature quilts.
