Picture Frames for Quilt Projects So You Can Skip The Binding

Use Picture Frames For Quilt Projects Put Your Beautiful Quilts On Display

Display a quilt block for all to see. Using picture frames for quilt projects also include things such as a Maple leaf mug rug. They’re quaint little mug rugs made with autumn color prints and while practical, could also be beautifully displayed sort of scattered, in a picture frame. Here are some suggestions when preparing to display your quilt projects in picture frames.

  • Add a 2″-wide border to the pieced top. It’s not necessary to match the border to the quilt top since the border will be pulled and pinned to the back of an acid-free board prior to framing.

  • Layer the quilt top with batting and backing; then quilt as desired, leaving the 2″-wide outer border unquilted. Once the quilting is complete, fold the outer border toward the center of the quilt and carefully trim the backing and batting ¼” inside the quilt-top edge. No need to bind your quilt at all.

  • Lay the frame front side down on a table. Lay the quilt over the frame, ensuring the quilt is straight. Add the back of the frame and slide the frame clips in place. You may choose to finish your framed quilt with a glass front. Glare free glass is better but it will cost a little more.
