Teeny Tiny Civil War Era Mini Quilts

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


Just completed are three teeny tiny Civil War Era mini quilts!

"Country Lane" is a whopping 8.5" square!


"Chimney Sweep" is a bit bigger at 9.5" square.


"Window Panes" is also 9.5" square.


Quilt Stats:
  • Size:  Truly mini at 8.5" and 9.5" square
  • Method:  Paper pieced, 2" and 3" blocks
  • Fabric:  Civil war ear reproduction fabrics with old-fashioned unbleached muslin backing
  • Batting:  100% cotton
  • Binding:  Double fold, attached by machine for durability with mitered 45-degree corners
  • Value:  Truly striking because of their incredible mini size!
And, no, I am not becoming a paper piecer.  I much prefer strip piecing and pieces of fabric big enough to find if you drop them on the floor!  Making a tiny quilt does not make a visible dent in a fabric hoarder's stash and therefore does not justify buying more fabric!
