I've been thinking about making some miniature quilts for awhile, but have been too distracted by making my big quilts. However, I came across the book, Little Lonestar Quilts by Lorraine Olsen, and was inspired!
|Little Lonestar Quilts by Lorraine Olsen|
It combines three of my favorite things, miniatures, Lonestar quilts, and paper piecing. So, I pulled out my stash of vintage 1930's and 40's scraps and got busy. Here's what I've come up with so far.
I have learned that I definitely want to use dissolving foundation paper on the next little star I make, as I spent far too much time ripping out tiny wee bits of paper on this one. Also, that if you try to line up a seam and have to rip it out more than 3 times, just live with a little imperfection.
I still need to choose what color fabric I would like for the background on this one. I'm having a hard time deciding between a sort of linen look neutral, or a solid-ish purple. What do you think? I'd love suggestions!
P.S. If you're miniature obsessed like me, check out my most recent favorite mini's: the miniature interiors of Sabinne Timm and the edible waffle furniture.
