A Unique Quilt Display

I know with all of the quilts that some of us have, we are always looking for new and unique ways to display our quilts.  This little lady was standing in the corner of our mountain cabin.  A chaperone maybe?   That is the kind of chaperone I would like...one who would stand in the corner and keep quiet. 

I didn't have a thing with me to use to measure her, but I wanted you to see this idea of how to display a quilt.


The quilt is gathered around the neck with a pipe cleaner (or you could use any sort of rope or cording) to match the background color of the quilt, and then a small silk floral arrangement is tucked in at the center.


As you turn her around, you see that she is fashioned on one of the metal easles that are used in the cemetery as a way to display a wreath.   Most people wouldn't know and neither would I if I hadn't turned her around to see how she was put together.   These easels are pretty inexpensive and can be found at several craft stores. 


The quilt is tied around her neck and the ends of the quilt droop to make the arms.


One side view.


The other side.


I think it would require some work to get the quilt arranged just right, but I thought the idea was clever.


After it rained one afternoon, there was a rainbow over the mountains.


Thanks for stopping by for a visit today!

Isn't that interesting? I wonder what gave some one the idea to use that metal frame that way? Love your rainbow photo. So peaceful.
