Miniature quilts had their start as doll size quilts in the early 19th century. Many young girls first learned to quilt by creating a small doll-size quilt using traditional blocks and scraps from their mother’s sewing. Some of these quilts used one traditional block and just repeated the motif, while other quilts were ‘sampler’ quilts.
Tim, being a ‘math’ person, finds it challenging to try to take the instructions from a 12” block and convert it into a 3” or 4” block.
Miniature quilts are really very similar to bed-size quilts — only smaller scale. A miniature quilt should look like a real quilt — all details — blocks, sashing, cornerstones — are proportional to each other.
