fiber art miniature quilt: Sunburst

Miniature Quilts Inspired by 19th Century Designs Welcome to Nine Patch Studio. I create miniature quilts inspired by traditional 19th century designs. Each miniature captures the essence of an actual 19th c. pieced quilt or pattern. I am drawn to the geometric designs and rich colors of early pieced quilts and often add my 21st century spin. Some works are quiet and elegant, others boldly abstract and surprisingly contemporary. All share a connection with a most dynamic and fascinating century in American quilting.
