I use full size seams and grade them if needed..batting...very lite ...sometimes split thickness and I have used fluffy flannel.
The first 2 pictures on my profile are little guys ! :D

Yes, just what does one do about "wadding" aka "batting" in miniature quilts? I would think that would become a real issue in some.

Actually I've only just gone to have a look at what I've let myself in for - Looks pretty neat to me, I like the fact that the blocks are repeated several times instead of all being different, that way you get to practise & refine you technique for each block, and the finished quilt has a nice symmatry to it (I like symmatry even if I cannot spell it :wink: )

Good idea I'll set myself a target to get my Tree of Life quilt finished by then, and if I'm done before I may finish another project :D

Idaho and Rosemary do you realise, if you do it 1/2 scale you'll be making a 3" sawtooth block. I hope you're up to it, I'll lend you my glasses :lol:
And this is a problem how? With a good friend (who is a biologist for a day job) who works in miniature, I've been fighting the 'working small' madness for several years, at least I am not proposing 1/12 scale :lol: ....or am I.............

Yep ! I think everyone can use a brush-up on their piecing skills from time to time and the resulting quilt can be a FMQ practice piece...then into the charily bin if you don't want to keep it !!..I'm in ! Maybe be I'll do it i/2 scale !! :mrgreen:
I might just join you on the half scale :wink: I had a look, and it is only 6 lessons/weeks long. I ought to be able to keep my concentration going for that long :roll: - At the start of the year I was avidly following everyone on the Sedona Star, but by June, I had run out of steam for it. Wonder if they could do a 6 month BOM?

And if you still don't like it you could always chop it down into 9" x 12" pieces and bind it up for AAQI's
