Small Quilt Decor

My girlfriend wanted me to share more photos of how I display small quilts in my home. The above quilt is a Thimbleberries pattern I made years ago. I've tucked it into a large crock near the fireplace.
Another little quilt tucked inside of a basket I picked up at a market while living in Germany. This basket is one of my absolute favorites! The small quilt was a gift to me from my gal pal, Shirley. (she spoils me)
The basket with small quilt and berry garland sits on top of the cabinets in my kitchen. Berry garland and quilts...a great combination!

This quilt was made by another gal pal, Claire. She knows just how much I love Kim Diehl's designs. I loved being able to manipulate the quilt in this wire basket.

I made this Lori Smith pattern a few times over! It is a well liked quilt and I kept one for myself. I don't know about you but there are many times I'd make a quilt for a friend; fall in love with the quilt....and think someday I'll make me one. Most of the time I never do get back around to making mine. Oh...not complaining...I'm just sayin'. My friends have really spoiled me through the years with quilted gifts. I wonder if they ever wished they would have made one to keep? How about you?

Wow, these are all great quilts and the way they are displayed is wonderful! Great job...I might have to go looking for some wire baskets and things!

I just found your blog and I love it! I really like making the small quilts and usually make 2 at the same time.... one for ME and one to give to a friend. Love what you've done with your displays. What's the name of the Lori Smith pattern?

Oh how pretty they look! One of my very favorite baskets is one I bought in Germany on a visit years ago.

You are very creative in how you display your quilts. It's incredibly inspirational to me. Where do you find the wire baskets, I see very few around. Thanks for sharing.

Mary, I'm so glad you commented on my blog because now I've found yours! Your home is beautiful and I love your little quilts. I don't have many, but now I've got wonderful ideas for decorating with the ones I'll make in the Little Women club! I'll visit often!

I love little quilts. I have admired Karen's (My Yellow Farmhouse on my blogroll) for some time now and I love how you both tuck them everywhere!
