"Inchie Quilts" is Nadine's book published by American Quilter's Society. It is available at IHAN. If you want an Autographed copy....and who wouldn't? You can purchase one on Nadine's Site. I remember being very interested in Nadine's presentation and my photos just don't show the excitement I felt so I'm not using most of what I took. You can click on her link above and see many examples of her wonderful work.
I love miniatures so naturally I was drawn to "Inchie Quilts." These make beautiful embellishments for wall hangings and quilts. Those ATC's seem too big sometimes....how about an "Inchie" exchange? That is more my speed!!!
I loved this one too. Too bad my photos don't show how very cool these really were.
Look at this Mosaic. I love it. Since I have lots of fibers and beads I think this would be a wonderful project to incorporate all my embellishments.
See what I mean? The photo above truly shows how I experienced Nadine at Schoolhouse....not like this photo shows.
While I was listening to Nadine speak I got some interesting ideas for other uses for Inchies. How about fundraisers for Pre-schools and other Schools? Each child could make an Inchie and they could be linked with little rings to make an entire picture and auctioned off at a school fundraiser. Each class could do one. Guild members could all contribute one and they could be hung at their meeting place. Every family member could make one and it could be assembled into a family quilt. Good friends could each do one or several and a friendship wall hanging could be made. I could go on and on and on. Just know I was thrilled to be introduced to "Inchie Quilts."
I really wanted this post to have better quality photos to show how neat this technique really is. It falls short of that but I can't run the clock back and take better photos. So hop on over to Nadine's website and look around. I guarantee you won't be disappointed with the photography there!!!
