Displaying tiny treasured quilts
I LOVE to create small & miniature quilts.
The quilt shown above measures 7" square.
I chose 1820's reproduction Madder red & black print fabrics and an early 1800's shirting for the background.
Because it was a special gift for Nell, I hand quilted it and decided to set it into an 8" frame.
Here is another little gift I created. This time for my blogging friend Carolyn.
The little quilt block that I framed measures approx. 2.5" x 3"
I embellished the framing mat with a teeny 1" colonial acorn doll that I made from wool felt, a wooden bead and an acorn cap.
I sent this off to her along with a doll exchange quilt a few months ago.
I would love to see how other quilters are displaying and/or gifting their tiny quilted treasures! I am always looking for new ideas!
every quilt tells a story....
