Design Wall Monday - October 23, 2017

Topic of the day:  Three Small Fall Wall Quilts

Someone asked me recently how I hang my small quilts.  I usually switch them out each season, and sometimes hang them right over something else.  For example,

This small quilt is now hanging in the front entry:



The size of this little quilt is 17 inches by 17 inches, and the hsts are 3/4 inches square.  How did it get there?  It is simply slipped over the mirror that is always hanging there:



In the computer room, I have a fall leaf quilt that was paper pieced:



This one measures 14 in. by 18 in.  I think it was a kit, but I don't remember.  The wooden dowel is slipped into the triangle corners on the back and is resting on a picture hanger/nail in the wall:




The third small fall quilt is propped up in the living room bookcase:



This little black beauty is 14 in. by 14 in.  How does it stay there?   Here's "the behind the scenes story"



Here's a Halloween pumpkin that I like:



Have you carved your pumpkin yet?  If not, what are you working on this week?  I love to see all of your pictures and I thank you for linking up with Design Wall Mondays.

Thank you for the great ideas for hanging up mini quilts. I have so many and am always looking for a way to display them. They are all so cute too!

Love your small quilts and the way you hang them. I think little quilts are the perfect way to decorate for any season. Thank you for sharing, I look forward to Monday mornings and your posts.

the picture frame backing is a great idea!....I don't carve our pumpkins. After Hallowe'en I cut them up and cook down the pulp for pumpkin pies. I know that jack o'lantern pumpkins are not as sweet as pie pumpkins but by the time I add sugar and spices I don't think anyone could tell the difference. And I feel very thrifty. (Though last year a squirrel chomped into one of the pumpkins and "carved" it for us.)

I bought some vintage wooden topped slacks hangers, with the hanger hook at the top.Perfect

Love that little black quilt! Almost looks like tiny orange bats in a night sky! :-) Thanks for sharing your quilt display secrets... I need to start adding those triangle pockets when I bind.
No pumpkin carving here yet this year...maybe this weekend.

How clever you are! I never thought of slipping one over a mirror or picture frame. Thanks for the great ideas. I love all your little quilts!

All great quilts! It's good you get them out for display. My favorite in this group is the black and orange - I'm sure because that's the color mood I'm in every late October. Happy Halloween!
