Mini Quilt Display


First, I would like to thank everyone who checked up on me over the summer.  My blogging break ended up being longer than I originally planned.  ;)  I had a fabulous summer filled with family, friends, and fun.  Now that the boys are all back in school, I plan on getting back to blogging.

When I shared pictures of my new sewing studio last May, I showed this stack of mini quilts I was hoping to hang on the wall.


Thanks to the help of my husband and Ikea, they are now on display in my studio.


I decided that I wanted rods with clips around my studio so that I can change out the mini quilts whenever I feel like it.  I used the Fintorp rails and the Syrlig clips from Ikea for my mini quilts.


My husband hung two rails on each side of my window for a total of four mini quilts.


He hung a fifth rail above my old cutting table near the door to display a fifth quilt.


Then he cut two rails a little smaller and hung them up together above my design wall area.  This way I can either use my design wall or hang up a quilt.  (This is Monkey's Monster Alphabet quilt I borrowed for this picture.)


I enjoy seeing a quilt more than an empty design wall.


Having my mini quilts displayed makes my studio feel so much more like home.

XX,
Jasmine

  4. Great way to hang them. I've been using command strips and they just about stay on the wall. Will have a look in Ikea next time I'm there for the clips!

  7. What a fantastic way to display the mini quilts. I feel my method of push pins in the corners is a bit harsh... but it gets the job done. I hope that the transition back to school is smooth for your family and I am excited to catch up with you. :)

  13. Yay you're back and glad you had a super summer! TERRIFIC idea to hang a quilt over a blank design wall! Mine is uh never blank, as I have bits and bats for inspiration or blocks I've made that are going to grow up... Love IKEA I do. And husbands that are so handy! :-)

  15. What a great idea! And so easy to switch out minis, or add smaller ones next to the big ones.

  16. Welcome back, Jasmine :) I know how those breaks can lead to just one more week. . . and then a month goes by! You are so clever! The rails look great and how cool to be able to easily change quilts.
