I went through a stage where I wanted to show off some of the beautiful Kaffe fabrics I was getting in the mail (bought online!), without having to spend the time making the quilt first. I went to a couple of local op shops and found some cheap frames which I painted antique white.
I fussy cut the fabric I wanted to show off, backed it with some of the small pieces of wadding you find you have lying around, and stretched it over the frame, sticking it down with packing tape.
I am quite happy with the results. And if I get sick of looking at the fabric I have chosen, I can easily pull it off and replace it with a new piece.
A simple, cheap project with nice results.
