Creative Framing for a Sweet Little Quilt |
Two Framing Ideas and Three Quilt Sizes Offer Many Options!
This charming little quilt will be lovely on your wall or table. It’s even more attention-getting when displayed in a rustic frame with chicken wire backing.
The quilt pattern, “Moda Love” from Moda United Notions, has instructions for three sizes. Choose a layer cake for a 72″ x 72″ quilt, a charm pack for a 32″ x 32″ quilt, or mini charms (2 1/2″ squares) for a 12″ x 12″ quilt.
Taunja Kelvington of Carried Away Quilting made the mini version and framed it in an easy-to-assemble wooden frame with a chicken wire backing for hanging the quilt on. Notice how the quilt is hung with tiny clips, meaning you can change the quilt in the frame any time you want.
The frame is about 20″ square on the outside and 16″ square on the inside, making it ideal for the 12″ x 12″ quilt.
Taujna made a second quilt of the 32″ size for her hallway (actually, this was the first quilt). This one she showcased on a barn wood backdrop. The rich wood really makes the quilt pop.
Of course, you can skip the frames and display the quilt as you normally would. The three quilt sizes give you many options. The large size is an easy bed quilt project and will be stunning made up in your favorite fabrics. Add borders, if you wish, to increase the finished size.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
