    I give all my quilts away. Had the idea to decorate the bathroom with enlarged photos of my icon and a mini cathedral quilt I have done.

    Turned out ok.. a bit pixelled but then, it is wall art.
    Those of you have asked to post final product ! one wall in bathroom is blue, accent with large mirror. A photo of that wall is just a picture of me holding a camera! Boo. not that interesting ! So, bathroom not all white.
    picture of one wall, the cathedral photo can be seen in a mirror above the sink!

    Love your idea of taking pictures of your quilts and placing them in frames. This may be how I redecorate a bedroom since all of the quilts I have made so far have been given away as gifts. Thank you for sharing.

    exactly.. all my quilts are to give away.. I have found the idea of keeping a quilt diary..

    The Bathroom is not a place to hang a fabric wall hanging, or small quilt.. so, the photo was the next best thing.

    Thanks for the compliments everyone ! Fun project !

    I love that idea. I take photos of all the quilts I give away, too, but I never do anything with them. I like this idea and will decorate my sewing room/office with them now. Thanks!!!
