Miniatures Monday--Tiny Sunbonnet Sue Quilt!

Hanging on the quilt rack in my miniature quilting studio is this tiny Sunbonnet Sue quilt, which is about 5" by 6". It looks so real for such a tiny scale-- it's actually made with a photocopier technique!

Gail, an acquaintance, made several tops using fabric a photograph, and a photocopier (couldn't say exactly how!) and taught a class on finishing the tiny quilts. I love how she got the lines and color so crisp! We backed them with a very small-scale print, hand quilted, then bound them by hand. I seem to remember that we used white cotton flannel for the batting--it seems to be just the right weight. It's perfect hanging in the little sewing room!
