A Beautiful Way to Display Blocks New or Old!

Quilt blocks framed in an old window create a lovely display. You’ll find old windows at garage sales, thrift shops and more. Choose one with several panes that are of a nice size to showcase quilt blocks.

In the example the frame was distressed for a shabby chic look. You could also paint it for a more polished presentation.

Instructions are included for pieced, layered and quilted blocks from 3″ squares. You may need to adjust the size of the squares to create blocks that fit the panes in your window.

Or, you might consider cutting blocks from an old quilt that is beyond repair. Read the instructions through to get an idea of how big to cut squares to fit your window’s panes.

The blocks are pressed into the frame from the back and held in place with stiff cardboard secured with a bit of hot glue.

You’ll find full instructions in the following article by Jaime Costiglio.
