Mini-Mosaic Quilts by Paula Doyle is a great book for postage-stamp collectors and miniature quilt lovers. These little blocks are made using 1 inch or 1 1/2 inch strips or squares. While these blocks may seem impossible to sew, especially into 1/2 square triangles or 1/4 square triangles, Doyle has developed a system for sewing them using fusible interfacing and freezer paper templates. Mini-Mosaic Quilts contains many miniature block variations and how to make them using these tiny squares. Doyle also includes several projects for using the miniature blocks. A wonderful book for making miniature blocks without doing paper-piecing.[...] ( )
I am very familiar with Paula's Mini Mosaic technique having done one or her patterns in the past. Her book is percise and easy to understand and the projects are clearly written and nicely illustrated. I would highly recommend this book if you are interested in doing miniatures.
This is a great method for making wonderful projects. The method works well, the directions are great. There are pictures to walk you through the projects and the finished project, because of this method, is perfect. I'm so glad a book is out on this method. It will be fun to use and reuse. There is a huge variety of different projects, so I chose one and loved it. And now I'm ready to do another.
If you are like most quilters you are starting to run out of room to display them all. Consider getting this wonderful book for making mini quilts the easy way with precision. Paula Doyle will take you step by step through this simple process so your new creations will have that professional look. You will not believe the results and praise you will be getting on your new quilts. Great for gifts and fun to do using up those precious fabric scraps. There are just so many blocks to make and the creative level is endless once you get started. There are many projects listed to get you started and then let you imagine run wild.
I LOVE this book...I am not happy with myself that I had it loaded on my Kindle. Guess I have learned not to have a book like this on the Kindle. Unless there is a way to make the instructions larger, I can't read some of them. I think I can muddle thru...but, very disappointing not to be able to read all that is needed to complete the project. You also cannot print the pages .. :(
I saw a video featuring Paula Doyle's work at The Quilt Show.com. I have always been fascinated with miniatures myself, and have tried various methods over the years. Now fusible techniques join an old favorite - freezer paper - to create these little blocks! I am sitting right now with Jinny Beyer's exhaustive encyclopedia of quilt block shapes organized by Jinny into a precise and very usable system to find blocks that work in specific situations (The Quilter's Album of Patchwork Patterns - a MUST have!), and huge numbers of these blocks are suited for use with Paula's technique. If I get lost down the rabbit hole, will someone please buy Alice et. al., and toss it down to me?
This ebook by Paula Doyle explains the method of creating miniature mosaic quilts simply and makes it easier of the sewer to create small blocks. If you are at all interested in doing mini's you should buy it. Thanks
Great book There are so many great patterns in this book, I don't know which to do first. It will take some time, as the squares are quite small, but I believe the end product will be more than worth the effort.
