Jo Morton’s display tips for small quilts (+ giveaway!)

The year: 1985. An iconic year for quilting. Why? It was the year quilt designer Jo Morton discovered her true love: she stitched her first quilt that was made to look antique, entirely on purpose.

Quilts from
Jo’s Little Favorites

Since then, Jo has become a star of the quilting world—fabric designer, teacher, author, lecturer, and host of the popular Jo’s Little Women Club—to share her love of vintage-style quilts with thousands of loyal fans.

Jo's Little FavoritesIn her new book Jo’s Little Favorites, you’ll find a specially curated collection of 13 quilt patterns from the early years of Jo’s club, photographed in new settings and filled with advice on how to decorate with small quilts. Whether you dream of stitching petite odes to the past or getting that rustic, repro look that’s so sought after today, you’ll fall in love with these little favorites. Just like Jo!

Today we welcome Jo to Stitch This! as a guest writer, here to tell us more about her stunning collection of quilts.

Jo-MortonTraditional quilts never go out of style. I’m drawn to small quilts because we live in an older house, a small bungalow with windows and doors in every wall. We also live with kitties who like to sleep on the bed, so there are not many good spots for showcasing large quilts. Making smaller quilts is logical for me. There are so many ways to use small quilts.

One day I counted the small quilts displayed in our living room and dining room. I counted 16 quilts! The rooms didn’t feel as though they were crowded with quilts. Instead, each quilt contributed a bit of color to accent and add warmth to our home.

With Jo’s Little Favorites, you can do the same. But don’t put the book on the shelf—open it up and start sewing!

Make a little quilt to line your sewing box or basket and be the envy of your stitch group.

How about lining a basket with a quilt and serving your favorite homemade cookies on a clear plate or platter? The quilt is a beautiful accent!

One of my favorite places to display any quilt, large or small, is over a cupboard door. Sometimes one of my antique quilts gets the prize location.

Quilts are much more than bed covers. They each have a bit of us in them. We select the fabrics, cut and sew them, sometimes we quilt them—or sometimes we send them out and quilt by check—but all that said, we have invested our time in them. Quilts are a piece of us that we share with family and friends.

I hope you’ll enjoy all the gorgeous quilts, plus more ideas for using small quilts in your home, in Jo’s Little Favorites.

    —Carla Finley on January 13, 2016
  • I like to use old wooden boxes and baskets

    —Debby Corkrean on January 13, 2016
  • I love making and using little quilts. I make them all sizes from potholder size to placemat or table runner sizes. They are great to use instead of "doilies" under lamps, plants or pottery, in or under baskets, or just hanging groups of them for wall art.

    —Kathe Howe on January 13, 2016
  • I love table runners. I have them not just in my table, but in the bookcase, on the wall, on chairs, even in the cat tunnel. They add that little splash of color I just love.

    —Catherine Cook on January 13, 2016

    unused towel rack (not to be used of course this is my personal room)
    backs of chairs my dog even has one for her bed

    I use every where I can

    —helen cox storey on January 13, 2016
  • I love the quilts in this book. I much prefer traditional patterns, so these small quilts are a joy to see. And are such great inspiration.

    I’ve not made many small quilts. The ones I have made I tend to hang on the wall. I would be terrified of someone spilling something on them if they were placed on a table or in a basket.

    Beautiful, wonderful quilts! Thank you, Jo, for creating these treasures and publishing them in the new book.

    —B from Canada on January 13, 2016

  • Beautiful small quilts that you can use everywhere in your home! A pop of color on the wall, table, cabinet or draped in a drawer or over an antique piece of furniture! I especially like them on my antique spool cabinets with my antique sewing notions displayed on top. Jo’s designs are timeless! Love her new book! Her quilts are beautiful in reproduction, batiks and many other fabric choices!

  • Love her ideas on where to put small quilts! I never would’ve thought of some of them!

    —jane d on January 13, 2016
  • A little of both I guess. I collect dolls so of course they get quilts, but I also like using them around the house for decoration. I adore small quilts and prefer to make them verses full size quilts. :o)

    —Cheryl Rich on January 13, 2016
  • I don’t have many small quilts, but now that I have ideas on how to use them, I plan to make some.. Thanks for the opportunity to win the book!

    —Joy Meetis on January 13, 2016
  • I have little quilts in the usual places…on the walls, tabletops, over the door of my antique pie safe, etc. I really need to start thinking out of the box to come up with more innovative places to display my quilts.

    —Kathy Upton on January 13, 2016
  • I would put them in view as soon as you walk into my living room and down the hallway. I’d want everyone to see them and, I’d want to enjoy them myself as much as possible. Thanks Jo, it looks like another wonderful book! ;-> Toni Anne

    —Toni Anne Potter on January 13, 2016
  • I put a small quilt on the toilet tank, and on it set a wire basket. The basket contents vary with the season/holiday, and coordinate with the quilt.

    —Bonny on January 13, 2016
  • I have not done any but I’ll try them as runners.

    —sonia on January 13, 2016

I love the idea of making a quilt for your sewing basket. I have an antique handcrafted standing sewing box that I think I’ll make one for. Thank you for the chance at the giveaway.

    —Laura D on January 13, 2016

  • I use mine on the coffee table under my lamps, kitchen table as a runner, backs of chairs, I have a small group of 5 handing on my bedroom wall. On the bottom shelf of my antique hutch. Pretty much anywhere I want to add a splash of color. I have many so I usually change them out every couple months.

    —Lori Quinlan on January 13, 2016
  • I have an oak display rack with pegs that are perfect for hanging small quilts 3 l/2 inches to 5 inches. I also love my oak quilt rack which accommodates up to 24-inch wall hangings. I am especially proud of my family antique Hoosier cabinet where table runners add just the right touch.

    —Deborah on January 13, 2016
  • Because we have 5 children, I started making miniature quilts because they are portable and I could work on them while sitting in swim meets, wrestling meets, soccer games. I display mine all over — under a vase, over the back of a chair, on a child’s antique chair, on an antique doll bed. My 5 are grown but my 2 year old grandson loves to play with them!

    —Pamela Kuczora on January 13, 2016

    —Mary on January 13, 2016
  • After remodeling my kitchen and bathroom, instead of lining drawers with shelf paper, i made little quilts for my drawers. tHey are nothing elaborate but are nice to see when I open my drawers. Nice padding for my glass bowls and pyrex. When they get dirty they go in the washer and dryer. Must more economical using my scraps than buying shelf paper. Would love this book!

    —Trena on January 13, 2016
  • Small quilts are a great way to try new fabrics out or to try a new technique that you want to fine tune. These make great wall quilts for a hallway or table toppers. If you make their look seasonal, you can change them out as the year goes on and therefore have them on display at least for some of the time.

    —Karen L. on January 13, 2016
  • I have some small quilts on walls in bedrooms – I’m NOT a morning person, and the sight of them gives me a much-needed dose of happiness when I wake!

    —jean on January 13, 2016
  • Bij ons hangen/liggen ze in de gang aan/op een zelf gemaakte houten muur-kapstok of site-bankje. Op de bank of grote tafel vind ik zonde want daar kunnen de katten en honden komen.

    Carol on January 13, 2016
  • I am not sure I have any unique places where I hang my little quilts but I have them in most every room and enjoy looking at them. They add so much warmth to a room. I hang them on miniature clothes hangers with clothes pins, put a small dowel inside a hanging sleeve or on a regular quilt hanger. I have two different 16″ Log Cabin quilts on the backs of my two rocking chairs. Love them all. Would love to win Jo’s book.

    —MargeP on January 13, 2016

  • When I was expecting the first of our 5 children, a kind friend offered to give us a cradle for our baby to sleep in. After all the rest of our children had outgrown the cradle over the years, I couldn’t bear to part with it since it held many memories for me. I decided to use the cradle to display my miniature and baby quilts in our living room and love the fact that it displays my quilts so beautifully!

    —Vicki Sprain on January 13, 2016

    —Marie on January 13, 2016
  • I have a water heater closet door in my kitchen. I hang different quilts on it as the seasons change or holidays happen. I made a lot of mini quilts years ago when money was tight. I could make beautiful things and learn new techniques too.

    —Terri on January 13, 2016
  • I display small quilts all over the house! I have one in the bathroom on the wall next to the washer. When I open the cupboard door over the washer the handle touches the quilt, not the wall! I like to change the quilts around so I get a different view of my quilts and so do my visitors!
    Thank you Jo Morton! Love your quilts!

    —Jean G on January 13, 2016

    —Dolores on January 13, 2016
  • I love quilts too! Folded on an antique oak walker in the master bedroom, on the guestroom beds, several folded at the end of one couch, draped over the arm of another, hung from the door of the antique cabinet that holds the TV for decor… and then the two we snuggle with in a puddle somewhere close at hand, usually with a cat curled up on one of them. 🙂 And yes, many of them change with the seasons. Did I say I loved quilts?

    —Rickie L on January 13, 2016
  • Hang them on hallway walls, in a doll crib and on walls in livingroom.

    —Karleen Miller on January 13, 2016

    —Elizabeth Monahan on January 13, 2016
  • I use small quilts everywhere in my house. Like Jo, I live in a cozy Cape Cod with lots of doors and windows and a couple of cats. I display quilts on the backs and sides of cupboards and doors and on tables and small furniture pieces. I hang wall-sized quilts in the hallway and over the couch in the living room. I change them with the seasons.

    —Bev on January 13, 2016
  • I put quilts wherever I can find a bare spot: on top of an antique trunk, on the sideboard and other tables and stands, on the stair and loft rails, on the backs of chairs, and on the limited wall space I have.

    —Penny on January 13, 2016
  • I have only made a handful small quilts, most as gifts, but I have one hanging in my dining room and I need to make somemore just for me! 🙂

  • I love to hang small quilts in our front hallway . Would love to have some new ideas!

    —Joan H. on January 13, 2016
  • I bring quilts to work. I have a cube panel where I can hang a 5-ft-long quilt, another space that will hold a 3×3-foot quilt, and a long narrow space that will hold a table runner or small wall quilt. Engineers love to look at them, try to figure out how I put them together. 🙂

    —Jill Ellis on January 13, 2016
  • I guess I never thought about small quilts utilized as other than wallhangings! The quilt vignettes Jo creates throughout her home are beyond charming. While quilts of any size may not scream, "Welcome to my home, my personal spaces!", they definitely seduce with a sense of comfort, a subtle invitation to coziness and the warmth of a congenial hostess. I can envision little quilts, even salvaged fragments , used in displays of my own collections. To this end I’d love an opportunity to win a copy of Jo Morton’s book.

    —Nancilyn on January 13, 2016
  • Love to put small quilts not only on the walls, but also on end tables as well! Helps to keep furniture scratch free!

    —Nancy Zelenka on January 13, 2016

    —Diane in VA on January 13, 2016
  • I love making small quilts/wall hangings! I have a small house with weird shaped walls, etc, so it only makes sense to use the quilts on the long skinny place on my wall, on the coffee table or on my daughter’s table (she has the large dining room table!) So much fun!

    —Judys on January 13, 2016
  • I don’t have any small quilts to display in my home! I will have to get myself a copy of Jo’s book to get the patterns to make some.

    —Lee on January 13, 2016

    —Ashley on January 13, 2016
  • I have a small wall space in the kitchen above our small eating peninsula and use a shelf with wooden dowel in the support of the shelf. It works just ‘dandy’ for display of my favorite small quilts, some made and gifted by friends, others that are my own limited quilting talent (why I love the smaller ones). This book would surely give me some new patterns and style for display!

    —Betty on January 13, 2016
  • Haven’t been quilting long but so enjoying the craft i love having quilts in every room. Then as I pass one I can touch and think about the making of that particular quilt. Right now I am trying to finish up several to be given away but just having them around first is a joy.

  • I don’t have many places to showcase my small quilts but I do have them hung on the walls and folded on chairs that I don’t sit on. I would love to have Jo’s lovely book of little quilts.

    —Lynda Nunez on January 13, 2016
  • Love this book and want to do every quilt in it. Hats off to Jo Morton for this great book.

    —Elaine on January 13, 2016
  • Small quilts are hanging in my family room. They add the perfect touch to the room while I sew the binding on quilts!

    —mary on January 13, 2016
  • I just have one so far. It is on my wall

    —Debbie Pete on January 13, 2016
  • in a bread basket, hanging off the doors of my hoosier cabinet, on a night table, as a "runner" across the foot of the beds, to line my crochet yarn basket.

    —Joanne Hamm on January 13, 2016
  • Every where I can.
    Top of toilet folded nice. Sides of staircase pinned over banister.
    Hung around home on small racks.
    Luv your colors and would be just sew fun to become lucky winner.
    thanks Jo for all your energies that you share to keep us inspired!
    Stitchfully!

  • I have a "Brag" wall in my sewing room.
    The group I belong to have a ‘Challenge’ each year, with the size limit being A4 (8 1/2 in x 11 1/2 in)
    I’m getting quite a collection
    I also like to make a Table Toppers or Table Runners
    One of the first quilts I made was a miniature Sampler quilt with twelve 2 inch blocks
    The whole quilt measures 10 in x 12 in

    —Bridget Fletcher on January 13, 2016
  • Love small quilts…I have also made dollhouse miniature quilts.
    I use my small quilts on tables & hang on walls.

  • My husband is a photographer and we share a hallway gallery- I think my quilts complement his photos and vice versa!

    —Linda Voltz on January 13, 2016
  • Small ones usually end up on a table or thrown over my machine at my house.

    —Janet T on January 13, 2016
  • I love Jo’s fabrics and designs! So far I’ve only hung them on the wall but have gotten many ideas from this article and comments. Would love to win the book!

    —Cynthia N on January 13, 2016
  • I have small quilts in many rooms. Wherever I find a little space, so goes a little quilt! I especially like to see them on small chairs and even footstools.

    —MJ on January 13, 2016
  • Both expected and unexpected. On beds, walls, rolled in baskets, draped on the arms of chairs, on dresser cupboard doors as Jo has done, as table cloths, under decor items, in my cats bed 😁, even in my car. Quilts make my house a home.

    —Dawn Jones on January 13, 2016
  • I don’t have them anywhere unusual. A quilt stand, a bed, the back of the sofa. I’d love a small one that I could hang on the wall and change out with the seasons and holidays though.

    —Annette Jones on January 13, 2016
  • expected…folded on chairs, baskets

    —Laura Wernet on January 13, 2016
  • I use them under candles and vases as display items xx

  • On my night stand in my bedroom. In the living room over the top of my chair.

    —Elaine Jackson on January 13, 2016
  • Besides on my dining room or living room coffee tables, is fun to put them on end tables, hang from china cabinets, on backs of chairs and on hangers hung from closet door handles…….lots of places!

    —Judi Rizzo on January 13, 2016
  • I’ve only made doll quilts and given them to excited granddaughters. I love the idea of using them to decorate with mini quilts!

    —Sherill V on January 13, 2016
  • I have a wall in my kitchen/dining/living room which is covered with mini quilts. At Christmas time they all come down and the Christmas minis go up!

    Christine M on January 13, 2016
  • I like to layer them on small spots that seem colorless without some patchwork to bring to life. Jo has many great ideas for inspiration.

    —Regina Harris on January 13, 2016
  • oh dear! i feel a bit of a failure…… I only have one small quilt of a Halloween witch that i made to try out foundation paper piecing. I love the technique & the finished quilt but it has only been displayed once. This book would give me the inspiration to make more small quilts & help me to display around my house with confidence & pride.

    —Suzanne Keal on January 13, 2016
  • I have small curtain rods in 3 or 4 places in my home to hang my little quilts. I change them out with whatever holiday or season it happens to be. Love my little quilts.

    —Sylvia on January 13, 2016
  • I love to use small quilts as table runners or I hang them from cabinets.

    —Nancy D on January 13, 2016

    —Margaret on January 13, 2016
  • As I am new to this I’ve only one spot: My sister’s child’s chair where a doll made by my cousin sits and watches over us all. Would love to have some more ideas.

    —Terri on January 13, 2016
  • I need some more small quilts, I tend to give them away when people admire them. They are perfect everywhere!

    —Lorrie on January 13, 2016
  • most of the small quilts I have made went to friends, mainly as table toppers or runners. I have a quilt stand for 12 x 12 quilts that a
    friend has made for me. Others I mainly have on tables or over the back of a few chairs.

    elr on January 13, 2016
  • On a rocking chair in my living room, hanging on an old cabinet in my dining room. Hanging in the bathroom. On the kitchen table. Where ever strikes my fancy! Looks like a great book.

    —Wanda Bennett on January 13, 2016
  • I LOVE making little quilts or minis. I use them on coffee tables, end tables, kitchen table, book cases .. wherever there is a flat spot. I hang them on the walls and change according to the season or what strikes me that day!! I have a couple of dolls and they cover them warmly! Would love that book (goody, more little quilts). Great giveaway and great post. I use a lot of Jo’s patterns!

    —Rosemary on January 13, 2016
  • I have some walls I would hang them on.
    Would love to win.

    —JMC on January 13, 2016
  • I have made lots of little quilts, they are all over my home – they hang from old clothes hangers in my laundry room, they decorate walls, sit under old things, some are rolled up in an old florist pail… I think they add warmth to my home. Thanks!

    —Joanne on January 13, 2016
  • I use small quilts under my table centerpieces, on my end table under my lamps, as placemats, and as wall hangings that I change with the seasons.

    —Carol Yemola on January 13, 2016
  • I tuck a small quilt in the corner of my hallway, folded on a wooden children’s shaker style chair for a touch of color.

    —Linda B on January 13, 2016
  • I only have one that is in a picture frame, however with Jo’s inspiration I know there will be many more. Such an inspiration, with the pattern and colors. Would be honored to win this book.

    Thank you

    —Marilyn on January 13, 2016
  • Small quilts cover my living room end tables and coffee table, night stands, dressers, china cabinets, the portable air conditioners when not in use, porcelain dolls in their cribs, the printers when not in use, my wood collapsible tables when I bring in the plants for their winter stay, office chair backs and a dozen other places including the walls. I love my small quilts. Thanks for offering a giveaway of this awesome book.

    —Audrey on January 13, 2016
  • I have 7 stairs up to my main living space which is open to the front door, I have 2 small Christmas quilts over the railing which need to be up-seasoned (they help keep cold out) I definitely need some new quilt ideas and get throuh some of my stash.

    —ELIZAJANE on January 13, 2016
  • I use small quilts on my bakers rack to display my Longenberger collection of dishes and baskets. My canisters I use everyday are also there and it just looks so cute and homey. I have done this for many years at my old home and now my new now. They look so cute. I checked out her book and the patterns are lovely and it has been put on my wish list. Thank you Jo Morton for sharing your talents with us.

    Pat Miller on January 13, 2016
  • Unfortunately, I have given every quilt I’ve ever made away. I think it’s time I keep some to display.

    —Jane on January 13, 2016
  • I also love the mini quilts, hanging on my hoosier cabinet, over a chair of course, on a picnic basket, any spot that needs a boost.

    —Cathy King on January 13, 2016
  • I love to decorate with quilts in baskets as well as using them as table toppers and runners. I use a 30’s quilted runner on a dresser as a changing station for my grand daughter. I am looking for more ideas and would love to win this book to find some. Mary

    Mary on January 13, 2016
  • love to put them in places for everyone to enjoy ~~~ and then have one or two to give away when the little girls come for a visit!

    —lisa on January 13, 2016
  • I love all of your little quilts. I always put one on a spool cabinet as a little topper, sometimes on the diningroom table, hanging in my sewing room from various places. I love some of your ideas and can’t wait to see your book and give them a try. Love the ones folded on the little chairs, but don’t have a great place for a little chair. Will have to find a little sweet chair and a great spot for it. Thanks for the inspiration. Love all your stuff….. So cute.

    —Natalie on January 13, 2016
  • Ihave quilts stacked on chairs and hanging on ladders. A few work as table runners and mats. the best idea I got from this article was to hang some on cupboard doors. I will do that soon.

    —Ruth clapp on January 13, 2016
  • I also have a small,older home with limited wall space. Mostly table mats, but also in a small doll cradle and across the doors on my old cupboards. Love Jo’s color choices and patterns…….fits right in with my antiques…….

    —Annemarie on January 13, 2016
  • Anywhere I need a little warmth or color!

    —Carol Vickers on January 13, 2016
  • I LOVE little quilts and have them all over the house! My favorite places are inside my plate and cup/glasses cupboards in the kitchen. I have 2 hung on the back inside walls that I change out with the seasons. So when a guest opens the cupboard they can’t help but smile! I have them tucked over an open drawer in my hutch, over the back or arm of a chair, I have 3 rolled up in a nice treenware bowl on my coffee table and of course the bowl sits on another one, I have them tucked under and partially hanging over my bookcase shelves in the living room, I have them on top of the tank in both bathrooms, I have them as a decoration by my mailbox on my front porch and every once in a while my mail-lady will leave me a nice note on how pretty a quilt is! I’ve given several to her! Quilts are just the BEST – they make everyone smile!
    And thank you Jo for your beautiful patterns and fabric – your collections over the years adorn my country home!
    Happy Stitching!

  • I like draping them at an angle over the furniture in the living room.

    —Jean Hefflinger on January 13, 2016
  • I am a newbie and don’t have many small quilts yet but I have lots of plans for making some. I plan to use them anywhere I can. I love Jo Morton’s designs and fabrics…I’m currently trying to build a stash of her beautiful fabrics.

    —Angelia L. on January 13, 2016
  • I actually have a cup of hot chocolate siting on the Nine Patch Doll Quilt that’s on my end table. Also have small quilts in my entry, bathroom, dining table and kitchen counter. Love to decorate with small quilts thoughout the house. Working on two more for Feburary hearts.

    —Rita S on January 13, 2016
  • I’ve purchased some decorative hangers and my little quilts hang on them in small spaces, like under the cup rack or the space between two windows.

    —Rochelle on January 13, 2016
  • Mostly I hang them on the wall. My dog hasn’t destroyed anything in a long time, and she targeted metal (particularly zippers) but I’d rather not chance a quilt somewhere she could get to it; even by accident, a 75-pound dog could do a lot of damage!

    —Karen on January 13, 2016
  • All my little quilts, and they are all Jo Morton fabrics are hanging in the stairwell to my sewing space. I am her biggest fan!

    —Emily Nie on January 13, 2016
  • I like to put one at an angle below my computer keyboard, sticking out toward both me and the screen. Then I can see parts of it any time I need to be at the computer.

    —Christine Lyle on January 13, 2016
  • I think it would be fun to put them in my little doll cradle for my granddaughters to play with!

    —Sue G. on January 13, 2016

    —Stephenie on January 13, 2016
  • Well, I’m another one who is missing small quilts and places for them…I haven’t made any small quilts (does buying patterns/kits count) and true confessions, I have some clutter, flat surfaces are at risk for "stuff"—I’ll work on that and get out my small quilt projects and have some fun.
    Cheers; Happy New Year

    —Carol on January 13, 2016
  • In baskets, as a doily,or on the wall. Looks like a great book.

    —Sharon B on January 13, 2016
  • I really like the little quilt in the basket with cookies in it –so homey and pretty and what quilts are all about.

    Carolyn White on January 13, 2016
  • I have a large bulletin board that I use for my rotating display of quilts. It also holds quotes and papers I need to make sure I can find easily.

    Shasta on January 13, 2016
  • I would LOVE to win a copy of this book. I am just getting started on little quilts. It’s nice to see a finished project more quickly than the larger sizes!

    —MaryinAZ on January 13, 2016
  • I love to leave them as special little gifts to cheer people up. The look on their face is priceless!

    —Tamara L Eaker on January 13, 2016
  • I tuck small quilts on tabletops, walls, the benches of stuffed animals, wherever they work. cdahlgren at live dot com

    —Cindy Dahlgren on January 13, 2016
  • I like to frame my miniature quilts in shadow boxes with miniature furniture. I love your work Jo – I am a huge fan and always have been. Thank you for all you do!

    —Mo on January 13, 2016
  • I always keep a little quilt on the ottoman in the living room as sort of a footrest.

    Jeanne on January 13, 2016
  • I love small quilts and put them on walls, tables, antique doll beds, free-standing wire hangers, draped over things…. You just can’t have too many of them.

    —Betty on January 13, 2016
  • I like little toppers on end tables and on my old Singer sewing machine cabinet. Like Jo says, it’s amazing how many places you can put them in a room and it doesn’t feel "over done".

    —Arlene on January 13, 2016
  • One of the places I would put a little quilt on is my Mother’s Singer 15-91 as a display.

    Doris R on January 13, 2016
  • I think a better question would be, " where don’t you use small quilts." Haha

    —Laura on January 13, 2016
  • Most of the ones I have made are used as table runners or toppers. Some are hung on the walls, particularly the seasonal ones for that extra splash of color.

    —Kathy L on January 13, 2016
  • I have one across the top of a chair in my living room and one across the bottom of my bed in my guest room.

    —Rene Bolton on January 13, 2016
  • I love little quilts…In one bedroom I counted 32 tucked here and there. Stacked, put under dishes, hanging off of dresser drawers…just love this style

    Thank you for this opportunity

    —Terry on January 13, 2016
  • Love to use small quilted pieces as liners for drawers and baskets and to place on countertop or section of table as place to stack empty cups or glass tumblers accessible and no-slip party "refreshments corner".

    —Marty on January 13, 2016
  • I make table runners for every season and celebration I.E. birthdays etc.
    I have made 15 bedside quilts in the last five years and have machine quilted them myself. Seven of them for my grandchildren and other people. I had never sewed and when I turned 70 – something just hit me and I started buying books, stash, notions etc. I had to learn about fabric, needles, thread – how to sew a straight stitch – just everything and I have finally become accomplished. I feel terrible when a day goes by that I’m not sewing. I need to start smaller projects now (baby quilts, lap quilts etc.) because of that "thing" that gets in your joints. I liked reading all the creative places that people used quilts.

    —Jackie Roberts on January 13, 2016
  • My small quilts are in the bookcase, resting on a bench made from an old baby crib, on the piano, in and on the antique secretary from my Grandmother and hanging on a couple of walls in my sewing room and the master bedroom. I am inspired by Jo’s style and willingness to share. Thanks!

    —Janey on January 13, 2016
  • I know it isn’t as cool a display as 5 little quilts rolled in a basket, BUT, the wire hanger stand allows me to showcase just one little quilt at a time. I am working on it, but I don’t have multitudes of little quilts to display just yet, however, Jo’s book will inspire me to create them!

    —Sharon Kaminski on January 13, 2016
  • I like them hanging on my walls. So far not a one since I am giving the ones I have made away. My goal is to have rotating ones in my rooms. I think they warm up the rooms.

    —Kathie Feller on January 13, 2016
  • I use my little quilts all over the house. Some on tables, ladders, everywhere around the house a little quilt will fit.

  • wall hangings. or foot of bed as a runner type item

    —apple blossom on January 13, 2016
  • This looks like such a great book. I just got a pack of civil war repros in the mail on Monday – thrillllling!!! I tend to use mine in a fairly traditional way – as table toppers, small wall-hangings that I change with the seasons, and sometimes as pillow covers. I like to hand-quilt, and these projects can be completed fairly quickly, which is a great satisfaction!

    —Elizabeth Bolton on January 13, 2016
  • on top of the kitchen island
    over top of wingback chair
    have one on coffee table
    Crossing my fingers to win the quilt book with all the awesome patterns. Can’t wait to get started on the exciting projects.

    —Marisa Mobley on January 13, 2016
  • The quilts that are finished were all made by my grandmother. She made me promise that we would use them. So we do. We cuddle up under them. When mine are finished, the first will be a wall hanging. It is in the making, along with a couple others. 🙂

    Debby on January 13, 2016
  • My quilts go on things I can look at as I love doing mini quilts and admiring my work that I finished.

    —Tanya on January 13, 2016
  • I like to use small quilts on the top of my dining room table. It’s easy to change quilts according to the season or holiday.

    —Linda Webster on January 13, 2016
  • My little quilt is displayed in someone else’s house….she really, really like it so I gave it to her. Now I need to make more so I can display them. I love Civil War quilts of any size.

    —DebMac on January 13, 2016
  • I display my small quilts on small quilt stands that my husband makes.

    —Maureen Haynes on January 13, 2016
  • I really don’t have any because I give them away before I have a chance to tuck them away!

    —Doreen S on January 13, 2016
  • I have a couple pinned on my kitchen wall. I made a couple of seasonal ones (1 fall, 1 St. Patrick’s) that I can switch out in the living room (places that have photographs the rest of the year) But the most I have made are for the little 12″ holders that I gave my sisters-in-law. That means I can give them a new one every Christmas!! I usually make them out-of-my-head — so I could sure use some REAL patterns!

    —Jan G on January 13, 2016
  • I’ve bought several very well made miniature quilts which I have had framed. These lovely little quilts are the art on our walls. Daily they inspire me. The little quilts I have made are hung in my sewing room. I like to keep track of them!

    —JoAnne T. on January 13, 2016
  • On top of a table in the living room next to a bowl of candy. Also have one hanging in my sewing room.

    —Lily Kamikihara on January 13, 2016
  • I love to pop those little quilts anywhere I can, little ‘displays’ on shelves, ledges and dressers…love wee quilts! Thanks for the chance to win a copy 🙂

    Raewyn on January 13, 2016

    —OkieMags on January 13, 2016
  • I love them in my sewing room as inspiration. I also use them on tables throughout the house.

    —Debbie Chenoweth on January 13, 2016
  • I use small quilts to cover the leather sofa cushions. Also, the backs of chairs and as table mats. I love the Jo Morton colors and have quite a collection of Jo fabric. Congratulations on the new book!

    —Nana Yardley on January 13, 2016
  • My goal for 2016 is to work on more mini quilts as I might actually be able to finish a project, big quilts just take too long with 3 kiddos. Great giveaway!

    —Jessica F on January 13, 2016
  • Love Jo and her quilts! Not much wall space so on tables, chair backs, under plants and even my dogs have their own quilts. Like to make a few for friends and neighbors for Christmas too!

    —Linda Schaefer on January 14, 2016
  • I leave my quilts on the spare beds on display.

    Maybe the next guest will take a liking to the quilt and I can say you are welcome to have it because you like it.

    Regards
    Theresa

    Theresa Stagg on January 14, 2016
  • I don’t have any little quilts other than mug rugs, pot holders, placemats and table runners.

    —Lynn D in NC on January 14, 2016
  • I hand piece and hand quilt my little quilts. They are draped over a ratten chair, used as table mats, hanging on a rack and over the back of my lounge chairs. I have very little wall space so they are ideal to display this way.

    —Ondrea on January 14, 2016
  • I like mine all over but mostly on the back of my living room chairs…. happyness04431@yahoo.com

    Anna Lutz-Brown on January 14, 2016
  • I put mine in obvious places, because I want to see them quickly and easily, no hunting or guessing at the design, or just wishing I could see the whole thing. Mine go on the wall or on tabletops. I can’t get enough of those sweet quilts.

    —Carole S. on January 14, 2016
  • I have several places in my home where I hang quilts and change them out seasonally or monthly. I also drape them over the top of chairs like the antimacassars of old days.

    Kris S on January 14, 2016
  • Over a chair back, folded on sofa, wallhanging, and on doors. Love to display my quilts large or small.

    —Lisa Burch on January 14, 2016
  • well to be honest i have only made large bed size quilts but i am intrigued by the little quilts and can’t wait to get the book and get started..thank you for such beautiful inspiration.

    —Sheri Wonderling on January 14, 2016
  • I display small quilts as wall hangings and to give color and texture to tabletops. I love that they are quick projects to finish!

    —Janice on January 14, 2016
  • Don’t have wall or display space in this 5th wheel trailer, so I’m starting to use them as table covers.

    —Margaret on January 14, 2016
  • On the wall, grouping several mini quilts. Just like group of framed photographs on the wall.

    —Kaoru on January 14, 2016
  • I love little quilts. I would hang them, use as table toppers or put on the back of chairs.

    Susan on January 14, 2016
  • My first mini quilt lines a beautiful basket that has become the favourite spot for cats to snuggle in and keep me company when I sew.

    —Diane H on January 14, 2016
  • Love all the quilts in the book! I don’t have too many small quilts but I display them on coffee table, dining table, end tables, etc. Would love to make a collage of them going up my stairs to my sewing room!

    —Donna H. on January 14, 2016
  • right now i don’t have any small quilts for ourselves. i have made them and given them all away. hmm, guess this means i need to make a few for our house, lol
    i would love to win this book, thanks for a chance

    —Lori Smanski on January 14, 2016
  • I don’t have small quilts, love the ideas of where to place them. I have lots of quilts that my late mom and mother-in-law made.

    —Debra Rice on January 14, 2016
  • So far I have given away all of the small quilts I have made. The only ones I have managed to hang onto have been full size quilts that live on the bed. I plan to fix that problem though and make some that I will keep.

    —Lori S on January 14, 2016
  • I have a small quilt holder my son-in-law and grandson made for me, to hold my minis. I tend to give them as gifts, so I only have a couple I rotate on the holder.

    —Barbara Amaral on January 14, 2016
  • I have a designated "mini" display area above the quilt storage bookcases in my dining room. It started when I wanted to put a quilt behind a Featherweight machine I have on display there (and hope to get in working order this year!). One little quilt looked too lonely and so series of making minis began! Jo’s designs are always appealing and I love the decorating inspiration in the book!

    Vivian on January 14, 2016
  • First off your quilts are wonderful!!! Where do I put small quilts?….a good question as I just got a small (6″) quilt stand and I have treated myself to displaying them above my desk so which is that … for me unexpected. Just starting to make myself a few small ones so we will see where they turn up.

  • I use mine in the kitchen, use them as self liners, on my big chair for covering it, and a matching one for my couch, placemats, table runners, a small quilt right in front of the fire place to sit on, made a dog quilt for my dog to lay on and keep warm. Working on the last few stitches and when it is finished it will be a permanet fixure on my bed. I use them where I can. It would be a treasure to own such a book as this.

    —Andrea on January 14, 2016
  • I have quilts everywhere in my home because I love them so much. Big and small, from bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. In baskets, doll cradles, crocks!! They are everywhere and I won’t have it any other way they are such a big part of my life!

    —Rose Landon on January 14, 2016
  • Ihave them rolled up iand displayed in crocks, rolled onto

    —Annette F. on January 14, 2016
  • I have them rolled up and displayed in crocks. Rolled onto large wooden spools. Draped over cabinet doors. No container is sacred. Small quilts are great to add that small dash of color throughout the house. I’m looking forward to Jo’s book.

    —Annette F. on January 14, 2016
  • Love them in an old wood box.

    —Betsy Arabucki on January 14, 2016
  • Little quilts are great for a wall display. A mini quilt show right at home.

    —Diana O on January 14, 2016
  • Mini quilts are in every room for each holiday. They are so quick and you can use up lots of scraps from other projects.

    —Gail R on January 14, 2016
  • I use them as table mats or cluster them together on a wall

    —doris on January 14, 2016
  • i have made a lot of large lap quilts- but need to use scraps to make smaller ones to put on display. Jo Morton’s book would be perfect for this.

    carol on January 14, 2016
  • Jo’s quilts are so gorgeous! I love quilts hanging, on the back of my couch or chair, minis for the tables or hanging. I also like to roll them and stand on end in a big basket I have.

    Awesome giveaway!

    —Rosalind Gutierrez on January 15, 2016
  • I have several minis from a Jo Morton class but they aren’t displayed. These are great ideas.

    —Tina on January 15, 2016
  • So far, I’ve only made one quilt that could be considered a "mini" and it’s in the closet off the living room. When one of us gets a quilt or afghan to snuggle in, my grandson wants the mini quilt.

    Laura B on January 15, 2016
  • I have gotten started in quilting late in life, so still have many place to put them. On place in particular I’m using them now is on a worn out soft coffee table/storage bench. We rest our feet upon this and don’t want a new one, so the small quilt was a perfect answer. I can change it for holidays etc. I have picked up a few new ideas in the comments too. Is this going to be a physical book as well, I don’t like ebooks. I like to take my books to bed, the doctors office,etc.

    Tonia L. Conner on January 15, 2016
  • I have a small ladder by the fireplace and we also have painted the top half of our hall wall off white so I can display some there.

    —Nancy on January 15, 2016
  • I love little quilts as table toppers. When they are not in use, I roll the little quilts up and store them in a basket so I can looks at my collection.

    —Barbaraben on January 15, 2016
  • I love this book and little quilts. I’ve been a fan of Jo Morton’s since I saw her first woks. I’d make and put Sadies on the wall and the 9patch dot on my table as an accent square, such cute designs and ideas.

    —ckachel on January 15, 2016
  • I display them on my piesafe in my kitchen, over decorative old boxes and pinned to a covered canvas on the wall.

    —Janice on January 15, 2016
  • I have a hanging frame that holds 12 x 12 quilts on my mantle that I change out for holidays or the seasons. I also have two wall hanging rods in my kitchen that hold larger wall hanging size quilts that I change out often.

    —Nancy on January 15, 2016
  • I just started my quilting journey so don’t have many to display but would love to make some from "Jo’s Little Favorites".

    —Julie on January 15, 2016
  • So far I only have a few small quilts so they get moved around. On the wall, over a doorway, loosely rolled and put in a big old sauerkraut crock with a few rolling pins.

    —cegnfred on January 15, 2016
  • I like to hang them over the back of a chair so I can see them all the time. Also usually have one (or more) on the back of the couch, maybe next to a full size quilt. Small ones are also good as pillow covers. I don’t think quilts should be just for display. They are made to be used. Yes, they may get worn but they are still good to look at. I’d really like to look at her quilts in this book.

    —Joyce on January 15, 2016
  • I love everything Jo Morton!!! Have made several of her quilts over the years. Always lends a warm, inviting presence to a room!

    —Deb Nelson on January 15, 2016
  • I don’t have a lot of wall space, and what I do have it taken by my photography habit and some prized art work from my life overseas. I enjoyed seeing some of the ways the little quilts can be used and displayed and as I work on my miniatures, I will find ways to display them. Thanks for the ideas!

    —Carolyn on January 15, 2016
  • I have only made six little quilts, but I love them on tables, shelves, and even the mantle. I also love Jo’s gorgeous fabrics. Every time I see her name I think of the book Little Women. My favorite character was Jo.

    —Judy Purcell on January 15, 2016
  • One place I enjoy having a small quilt on display is atop my treadle sewing machine in our entry.

    —Glenna Denman on January 15, 2016

  • My small quilts are in groups on the walls and on every flat surface. Would love some more great ideas for small quilts. Thanks for asking.

    —Elizabeth Teerlink on January 15, 2016
  • I love small quilts, hanging on the walls in every room, over chairs, on the baby grand piano, and as a cover for the sewing machine when I’m done for the day (the heavy cover won’t fit over the machine when it is sitting in a sewing table). I would love to win this book of Jo’s!

    —Margaret Clubb in beautiful Pacific NW on January 15, 2016
  • I put them everywhere, on the back of sofas, on the sewing machine, on the walls, on tables, on the back of chairs, at the bottom of beds, on quilt racks, anywhere I can find a space that needs something pretty. I would love this book.

    —Mary on January 15, 2016

    —Sue on January 15, 2016

    —Lillian K on January 15, 2016
  • I have them hanging on my walls when there is a small space that needs something. I have a basket of small quilts in my entry hall and put them on the entry hall table as the seasons change. Then there are the table runners!

    —Sally on January 15, 2016

    —Bridget on January 15, 2016
  • I like putting them at the foot of our four poster bed or on the back of a wooden chair. I’ve used them as table runners or to anchor a vignette. I really like small quilts! I’d really love to have a copy of this book.

    —Michelle Whitwam on January 15, 2016

    —Cathy Burns on January 15, 2016

  • The few small quilts that I have made are displayed in my bookshelves draped across ornamental vases and baskets. I really need to make more for some smaller wall spaces!

    —Debbie Miller on January 15, 2016
  • I love little quilts! After the quilt I made in a beginners class, about 24 years ago now, my first quilt was a doll bed quilt for my daughter’s doll house, an attics window, that measured about 8″x12″. Made many small quilts since then and use them all over my house. The last one I made is on a barn wood table hubby made for our back door entry. It hangs on a small metal display with small sheep gazing at the small quilt (13 1/2″ x 13 1/2″). A touch of color everywhere brings smiles and warms the heart!

    —Iaci Flanders on January 16, 2016
  • My favorite location for small quilts is the heart of the home – the kitchen. I tend to make potholders and table runners but I like to hang them on the wall, too. I never thought of using a small quilt to line a basket but I will do that.
    The best part of little kitchen quilts is they are used. I love to rotate my potholders and rediscover special ones like the Valentine hearts on which my mother embroidered my children’s handprints 25 years ago, or one I bought on a trip to Pennsylvania Dutch Country. I recently made my daughter some hot pads for her all-white kitchen. I made them out of Kaffe Fasset prints so she will always remember our trip to a museum displaying his quilts.

    —Kathy Renz on January 16, 2016
  • only have a few right now so used dec on table tops over backs of chairs

    —linda on January 16, 2016

    —Kathleen C on January 16, 2016
  • My are usually on table tops as table runners and place mats. I love the way they looks folded on the chairs though! That is a great idea!

    —Nancy Roraback on January 16, 2016
  • Mine are mainly utilitarian – unless its a super special one i.e. gifted one from dear family and friends or holiday theme where I might then give it it’s own special space or hang it… Otherwise, the utilitarian ones I use under everything. Under the napkin holder on kitchen table, under the kitchen-aid (which really helps me me move it to and fro on countertop), under the lamp on end table, under the trinket dishes… under a photo frame…. Smiles, would love to look at your book because I love the photo on this entry where the littles are in the basket rolled up – super cute!

    —sarah anderson on January 16, 2016
  • Well my favorite spot is on my dining room table because then I can look st it every time I walk into the room. Also on the backs of my chairs and sofas. And then on the walls, in my baskets, in stacks in shelves. Love them all and I would live a copy of this book!

    —Renee Welton on January 16, 2016
