Living With Little Quilts

Laundry can be fun!
My laundry room features a wall of small quilts
that I have made over the year. Most of them have been 
made using an antique doll quilt as inspiration. 
A lot of them are featured in this book.
The quilt in the top left corner is a favorite. 
You can find the pattern in our 
See the little quilt folded on the top of the basket?
That is my mothers doll quilt and has here named
embroidered on the back - so special.
I use little tiny nails to attach yardsticks to wall. Leave the 
heads sticking out so you can hook the nail into
 the binding between the stitches.

Little Gems

I have been working on a few setting ideas.
I think this one is the winner.
You can find more setting ideas on my Pinterest Board
I will be using 3/4" hexagons in a natural linen. Simple and Classic.
My quilt is going to be small about 30" x 42" 
1 yard of background fabric will be more than enough.

Living With Small Quilts

Using everyday items in a different way is a great 
way to display little quilt. This galvanized letter holder
is perfect for a few folded up small quilts.
I purchased this letter holder at Pottery Barn several years ago. 
The little house quilt was made using the pattern from this blog.
