Oh so slow, you would think a miniature quilt would be quicker to make than a full size quilt but this seems to have taken ages. At only six by twelve inches it would hardly keep Barbie warm. My next hexagon qult is going to be for the bed!
It isn’t as wobbly as in the photograph, I must work on my photography skills.
I used Liberty Tana Lawn and started off piecing with Auril but ended up using invisible nylon thread. I found the nylon very hard to work with as it formed loops and knots very easily which were hard to find and undo – it is invisible afterall! I used glue to make the 1/4″ hexies which was very quick and simple to do – and quick to remove at the end.
Still it has been packed off to the Isle of Wight ready to go with four other quilts from Region 8 of the Quilters’ Guild up to Birmingham for the Festival of Quilts in August. It’s not a competition entry but for a display by the specialist group ‘Miniature Quilts’ within the Guild. It is the first one I have ever made and probably the last; I don’t think my eyes can take the strain even with a magnifying glass
I shall have to start a new project for Slow Sunday Stitching over at Kathy’s Quilts. Now I am off to see what everyone else has been up to.

Despite your troubles it is a beautiful quilt! Barbie would love it if you did make it for her!

And a lovely finish it is!! I have to agree with you on making miniatures. They are ever so charming, but most time consuming.
Thank you. Have you made many?
Very bright and pretty mini! Hope you find something fun to carry on with your slow stitching.
Thank you – I have started a piece of Victorian crazy patchwork and now I need to add embroidery so I am sorted for a wile now
