Mini Amethyst by Rachelle Denneny (Australia)

In 2011 I won this little miniature quilt at the IQA Miniature Quilt Auction which was an annual tradition at the International Quilt Festival. Rachelle Denneny, from Australia, made this quilt, Mini Amethyst, the year following her Best of Show win in Houston. This is a mini version (about 18" x 18") is a version of her much larger prize-winning quilt. It’s amazing the workmanship that goes into miniature quilts. Miniature quilts require attention to detail and are not made as quickly as one might think. Are you a fan of miniature quilts? Or do you stick to the larger ones that are wall art and/or utilitarian and functional?


Choose your own difficulty. Click the 9-patch grid to change number of pieces. Click the circle arrow to make the puzzle pieces rotating instead of stable orientation. Also, there are tips under the "?" on the upper right of the puzzle. If you'd like a full screen version, click the button below. Have fun!
