I promised in Miniature Quilts Revisited that I would show a picture of my miniature quilt once it was finished. The hand quilting didn’t take long. I just quilted 2 lines through the light patches, each about 3/8″ from the seams. I’m a big fan of Lori Smith, From My Heart to Your Hands, and used her idea of framing small quilts.
I bought a 16″ x 20″ frame, removed the mat and just placed the unbound quilt against the glass. The quilt was slightly larger than the frame, but I didn’t want to cut it smaller in case I decide to take it out of the frame later on and bind it. I just let the edges extend beyond the glass and squeezed the cardboard back on. If you look at the back, you’ll see the unfinished edges of the quilt sticking out, but that part will be hidden against the wall.
Have you made any miniature quilts? What do you do with them? Leave me a comment—I’d love to hear your ideas.
