Folded corners...........

This is the first time I have used the squares folded into triangles as the hanging method on a small quilt.  They are on all 4 corners so the rod can be placed on any edge.  This way the recipient can decide which edge is top.  I am still sewing the binding in place in this photo with about half of one edge to go.
I chose the pairs of Kaffe collective fabrics for the final four butterflies.









Two of them are sewn but not pressed.  I will finish the other two today and then decide the order of the blocks on the design wall.

If you are wondering about the pattern it is shown here.

I haven't seen the Folded Corner technique for ages; although I rarely make small quilts these days it is lovely to have a reminder of such a useful little trick :)

Thank you for your email yesterday, much appreciated.

That a good idea for the four corners. Two nails in the wall and a person would have a piece of art hung.

Those are great coordinating prints for the next butterflies. I am still amazed by your Kaffe fabric collection!

I do the folded corners on small hangings too, so handy

I heard today that Westminister Fabrics are closing shop, I wonder what company will grab Kaffe Fassett?

I, too, thought of you yesterday when I heard about Westminster Fabrics. I feel sorry for the designers/employees involved.

Your new set of butterflies add even more sparkle to your piece. I had never seen the four corner application to hang a small wall hanging, I really like that tip.

Did you see that Free Spirit is closing? I hope KF finds a new fabric representative soon!

That corner method is totally new to me. What a great idea, thanks for sharing. I'm always learning new things, thanks to all my sweet blogging sisters.
Happy Valentiene's Day!

I just used the folded four corners on a hanging I'm using as a hostess gift. And instead of nails, I use Command hangers that can be removed without leaving holes to fill.
I'm sure Kaffe will have no problem finding a new fabric company. They are probably falling all over each other trying to grab him up.
