Thoughts on Displaying Small Quilts

Check out Laura Cater-Woods’ blog to see what she is doing with her small works.
You have seen a few of my pieces that are similarly done. I do think that people “out there” can relate to art presented in this way. They know that they would hang it on a wall. With our “soft works”, I have heard many non-textile people at exhibits and galleries ask “What would I do with that?”
Virginia Bluebells is my hand dyed dupioni silk that I applied to a stretcher frame. I printed a photo transfer of my bluebells onto Jacquard brand soft feel silk that is pretreated to be washable using my Epson Photo R1800 printer. I machine quilted around the designs of the flowers and leaves, completed the piece and then, to secure it to the dupioni, hand stitched along the top edge and at the two bottom corners. A hanging wire is on the back of the frame.
