Skip the Binding for a Super Fast Finish!
Quilt blocks and mini quilts look wonderful in frames and are beautiful on a wall. Cluster several together for a lovely display of your quilting skills.
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.
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!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
