Displaying Vintage Quilt Top Segments

On a recent trip through a local thrift store I saw these vintage quilt displays made out of old mirror frames.

What an incredible idea. Don’t you love how it enhances both the mirror frame and the quilt top.

This would be especially effective on a quilt top that has holes or unusable areas. Love it!

    1. That is a great idea! I have a quilt that was given to me by my great grandmother and little did I know way back then that it needed to be taken care of gently so I used it up but just can’t bring myself to get rid of it. Are these quilts behind glass? I could probably do something like this with a piece of my quilt and then feel guilty about getting rid of the rest but there probably isn’t an area on that quilt that doesn’t have some deterioration. I am going to seriously think about doing this. Thanks for sharing Angela.
