Guild member Anne Gosling shares some of her work from a recent miniature quilt exhibition, ‘Inspirations’, along with a selection of other pieces she has made as a member of the Miniature Quilt Special Interest Group.
I make miniature quilts, but I also make large quilts and other miniature things such as scale dolls house items. There is definitely something absolutely fascinating about anything made in a smaller than usual scale, that you can hold in the palm of your hand. It’s a bit like entering a fantasy world, but it is also awe-inspiring – how do people make things that small?
Miniature Quilts are small versions of a full sized quilt. If a miniature quilt was viewed with no indication of size, you shouldn’t automatically realise it is a miniature quilt.
Miniature Quilt Group joint co-ordinator, Karen has designed a quilt made from the contents of her scrap bag. This applique, crazy patchwork and embroidery project will be really fun to do!
