    Just wondering what do you do with your little or mini quilts/wall hangings? I know there must be something besides hanging them in the sewing room!

    Hanging them in the living room, bedroom, hallway, kitchen, laundry room and bathrooms, lol. Use as table toppers? I don't know, I just started quilting recently, and envision a house full of quilts everywhere :mrgreen:

    Mine are either given away, used for quilt show auction or live on the closet shelf.

    Use them as mug rugs coasters depending on how small they are. Wall hanging size you could use them for table toppers or group them in a framed grouping. I hung several of my Doll Quilts in the bathroom in a grouping. Really brightens up the room.

    I made some dresden Kaleidoscopes into trivets and used them under dishes when we had a dinner. They could be used laid over the back of chairs dining or reclining. They could be laid over the back of your sofa. If you have several lay them side by side along the back. Lay them on a railing if you have one or hang them up the wall along a stairway like pictures.

    Here is one way

    I would hang them on the wall of my cubby at work. Now I hang them on the outside of my condominium door.

    I hang them up around the house, use them as table toppers and give them away! It's a nice way to change up the way a room looks without taking up a lot of storage space. Just use one of those multi-tiered pants hangers. You can fit one or two on each pair of clips and hang it in the closet.

    I have five old chairs for children, and my minis on display are draped over the chairs. Otherwise, I just love them to death!

    I have one location that gets changed monthly.
    They do well at fundraising events, if you get too many!

    I didn't think about a mini for a fundraising event.
    Many good ideas. I have mine hanging in my sewing room! I love them all!

    I donate a lot of mine! http://alzquilts.org

    I also have them hanging all over my house, my daughters room, covering up spots that I haven't gotten to spackle/paint yet from when we moved into this house two years ago in July.

    Also use them as candle mats, trivets, table decorations on end tables, doll quilts for my 2 year old.
