This year our large guild’s annual challenge is to create miniature quilts, so we decided to do mini-medallions in conjunction with that. Only six of the nine of us participated this time.
The rules were very simple. Because the guild challenge restricts finished miniature quilts to 18″ or less, our rules do, also. The person who started the quilt was to use a center block finishing at 5″ or less. Each of the three surrounding borders was to have a width of 2″ or less. We also agreed to give each other leeway with these simple rules, as long as the finished work would still be 18″ or less.
At our May meeting we shared the results. Here are photos of four of the finished tops.
The guild challenge is at our July meeting, so our goal is to finish them with quilting, binding, and labels before then. We all found working small very challenging, but we were pleased with the outcome.
