A Happy 'Mini~ish' (mini finish)


Mini's Finished!  

First of all, thank you for the advice and ideas on hanging Mini's!  Quilters are probably the best people...EVER!  I appreciate all the comments and help!

In my previous post: Mini Quilt ~ Color Squares, I didn't have a clear idea how I was going to hang these mini's.  After hemming and hawing (lots of hawing) I came to a conclusion.  I decided there was no reason to re-invent the wheel!  I mean really!  Sometimes trying to be inventive or clever isn't necessary!  Stick with a tried and true method!

Each little quilt is happily crinkled, secure with a snazzy binding and outfitted with a perfect hanger! 







I'm a skinny binding kinda girl.  2 1/4".  Using left over binding scraps,  I made two triangles for the corners.  Perfect size.  I also wanted to make sure the wood piece stayed put, so I added 1/2" cotton twill tape on either side of the center.  They were 2 1/4" long and then folded over.  


My favorite part is the wood piece!  It is 1/4" thick and 1/2" wide.  Thank you Home Depot for having just the right size!  A nice center hole and viola!  I must give due credit to my husband.  He masterfully cut and drilled each one for me!




Next time I will sew the corners and twill tape on before I add the binding.  DUH!  I couldn't help it.  I was anxious to finish.


Neat and tidy!

  1. Love these!!!! I can't decide which I like best, Mr. Green Binding or Ms. Pink Binding. Oh, though, Light Blue Binding is so good too!

    Thanks for the info on how you will hang them. Super informative.
