Add the perfect "Home, Sweet Home" touch to your dollhouse with these easy-to-make miniature quilts. This expert guide offers step-by-step instructions for foundation piecing, a machine-sewing technique widely used in the late nineteenth century and revived by today's busy quiltmakers. With foundation piecing, you don't need to handle tiny patches of fabric, so creating your 1"-scale masterpiece is remarkably easy. Ten gorgeous patterns appear here: Watercolor Weaves (a variation of the ever-popular Log Cabin pattern), Southwestern Skies, Midnight Stars, Springtime T's, and six others. Blocks range from 1" to 1 1/4" square. Helpful layouts will assist you in determining color values and placement. Even beginners can follow these simple instructions, and experienced quilters will savor the opportunity to try some lovely variations in a miniature format.
