"Seeing The Potential ...

"Seeing The Potential ...

"Seeing The Potential In My Fabric Fragments" by Susan L. Jaenen-Griffin 400 pieces 1.5 cm square cut from scraps to make this mini one-patch measuring 34.5cm X 35cm ( 13 1/2" x 13 3/4")

In order to be considered a true miniature quilt, the quilt must have all the elements of a full size quilt.  Whereas a small quilt is just smaller in size a miniature quilt has the same number of pieces as a full size quilt but each piece is considerably and proportionally smaller.  The challenge is to ensure each piece and seam is perfect.  Even a 1/16” error in a miniature quilt will be noticeable.
