Sweet and Simple Update

Two more blocks done for "Sweet and Simple".  I think that makes sixteen of the thirty designs.  First is a block titled "To Love and Be Loved".  It has a nice quotation embroidered on it.


Next is a block titled "Springtime".  Those are long rabbit ears.


I found a wood rack at a local thrift store.  I don't know what its original use was meant to be but I am in the process of hanging small quilts on it.  Right now the rack is sitting on a dining room chair.  I am not sure exactly where it will sit but probably in the entryway near a cabinet full of quilts.  I had seen something similar on a blog recently.  I can't remember which blog.  I thought it was a good idea but figured I would never find anything like it.  But, surprise, I did.


Have a good sewing day!

Love your new blocks and your rack is perfect for quilts.
I always look for small ladders and things I can hang quilts from, fun for the minis.

Oh, that first block really makes me happy! Love it.
Maybe it was my blog. I have a ladder like that I found at a thrift store a few months ago and posted photos of it with little quilts. And then I just showed it again with my Fall decor post. Yours looks like it has a nice arrangement on the side that makes it free-standing. Mine has to lean on something.

I think those racks were sold for magazines racks - what a great idea to use it for little quilts. Nice display you have!
