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.
