Scaled-down versions of their full-sized quilt counterparts, the mini-quilts featured in this book provide quilters with the perfect opportunity to explore creative options for block settings.

The fabric requirements are much less than full-size quilts, so miniature quilts are ideal for stash or scrap quilting. Classic quilt designs are explored in a miniature setting, many with fresh new fabric combinations. The easy-to-follow instructions in this book will have quilters completing designs in no time, creating projects such as Log Cabin Pineapple, Nine-Patch Floral Garden, Amish Bars, Spools Variation, Homecoming, Dainty Baskets, and Kaleidoscope.
