Welcome to Quilty Pleasures where we celebrate Art Quilts, their creators and the cultural history of the humble quilt.
I was thinking about dollhouse miniatures lately. I used to do shows and make many different dollhouse items, even getting in a miniature magazine for my gourd wagons! I also designed fabric, both mini and real size. Some of my designs were “cheater” prints for quilts wherein I reduced quilt patterns to dollhouse scale. At some shows there were people who actually made the quilts with sewn patchwork. These memories led me to this article all about dollhouse miniature quilts. We all have millions of scraps so what better way to use tiny pieces of beloved prints we have hanging around?
I will not explain a lot about the numerous processes involved in making these quilts but rather will just offer up pictures and their links for inspiration! Often they are not sewn but rather ironed onto fusible webbing. Some, however, are sewn. Fun ideas!
The next quilt is one that offers up a pictorial tutorial! Such a sweet little quilt.
I wanted to just send these fun little finds out there and hopefully, once more, inspire you to think about yet another possible adventure in your quilting journey!!
