Framing is a great way to get a quilt on display quickly, and to show off orphan blocks that may never see their way into a finished quilt. Plus, it’s super quick and easy.
Frames are also a great way to display vintage blocks and small quilts, or even beautiful pieces of worn old quilts. Glass will protect the fabrics from dust that can cause old fabric to age more quickly.
Just remember to hang all quilts, whether in frames or not, in places where they won’t get direct sun or be exposed to other strong light. Sunlight and some indoor lights will cause the fabrics to fade.
Frames dress up whatever is in them, and will give your small quilts extra importance. Plus, you won’t need to bind blocks or quilts that you plan to frame.
You can choose to frame with or without glass. Glass will protect the fabrics, but your quilting stitches may be easier to enjoy without glass.
