We will learn about Miniatures and Small Quilts, what they are and some methods and tips for construction. We will practice sewing on a small scale by making a doll sized quilt using 3 inch blocks. Maureen will also give you a number of patterns for making other miniature blocks, some of which are paper pieced.
