I hope everyone had a nice holiday weekend. Our weather was absolutely gorgeous on Saturday and then on Sunday--it rained.
Thanks so much for the compliments on yesterday's scrap quilt. I love making these small quilts and use them in so many ways. I did get questions on that post and the earlier one on my Temecula Quilt Co. minis about how I use them.
My reply is "as many ways possible!" I grabbed my camera and did a quick walk around my house to capture some of the ideas that I have. I would love to hear your uses for small quilts, too!
They look great on table tops! And they double as coasters! Also, I gather them up and launder them once a month or so--less dusting!
They look great tucked into baskets.
I love them hanging from hooks or pegs.
They are art, so you could frame them.
I hang lots of them on the walls. I love this mass grouping over my sewing table.
(Idea from Katie at Inspired by Antique Quilts.)
You can always use them as doll quilts, too! I would love a collection of old doll beds, but I keep myself content with this one that my husband and I made. Flat Kiley is still visiting, and when I tucked her into bed the first night, my husband shook his head at me. He doesn't get it!!
I don't collect doll beds because I already have a collection of vintage, red, children's chairs. My whole family doesn't get that, but I love them! Oh, and small quilts look great on the backs of them, or folded on the seats.
But why stop with children's chairs? One of my favorite ideas is to use those screw pins to attach a small quilt to the back of a regular chair to protect it from hair oils, etc.
I hope you all have a marvelous day. I'm going to work on my Blogger Girls BOM--the new block pattern is out today. Also, later a new Schnibble is going to be announced. I'm so excited!
