My first, machine pieced in strips, hand quilted. Seams are 1/4". Each Nine patch finishes at 3/4". Photo by DH.
This one was from a Sally Collins workshop early in the 1990s. It placed Third in the County Fair because the machine quilting is iffy. I didn't care, I still like it.
Pine Trees. Machine pieced, machine quilted. The HST units finish at 1/4". Photo by DH.
Log Cabin, or Straight Furrows; machine pieced, hand quilted. I'd made this one again in a minute, it was so fun and is so pleasing.
Broken Dishes, machine pieced from cut-away HSTs from another project that I just couldn't throw away, machine quilted.
I don't have a lot of luck handquilting my minis. I can't seem to get the stitches and the quilt designs to scale. But people always seemed impressed by the fact these are not paper pieced. I learned to make minis before paper piecing was really popular so... And I'm usually happy with the results. Though if I ever attempt the mini Feather Star - I don't know, it might be better to try pp'ing it.
