Featured Quilter, Sharon Shorey

Amazing miniature quilts


Long time MLQ member Sharon Shorey of North Pennington is  active in the Vermont quilting community, specializing in amazing miniature quilts. We are fortunate that Sharon will be our featured guild quilter at our 2018 Festival of Quilts.  Sharon will be displaying over 70 of her favorite miniature quilts, made between 1984 and 2017.


Sharon has been sewing since she was seven when her mom first taught her on a Singer Featherweight. She became interested in sewing quilts in the 1970’s, and sewed her first (full sized) sampler quilt in 1979, and soon began teaching quilting.  In 1983 she was inspired by a student in a class she was teaching and traded in her passion for 12” sampler quilt blocks for miniature quilt blocks.  Her miniature blocks are made with the foundation pieced technique.


Sharon is also one of the founders of Bennington VT’s, Quiet Valley Quilters Guild, a certified National Quilting Association teacher and designs quilt patterns for her own business “Mini Traditions.”
