Unusual Icelandic mini quilt

While reading Jean Wells’ book – Intuitive Color and Design, I saw a unique way to display a mini- quilt.  Jean had mounted a mini-quilt on twigs and a linen background.  I loved the look of this quilt on the twigs.  I am sure that Jean used real twigs for her project.  I went to my local craft store and found a cinnamon scented broom made of twigs.  So I bought it home and had to let it air out for a week because the cinnamon smell was too strong. LOL  I cut the twigs to put on my linen covered canvas (11″ x 14″).  What a mess.  There was pieces of twigs all over the place – just like it was shedding.  So time to find a different solution.  So I went to a different craft store and found some more twigs.  Success.  Easy to cut and no shedding.  Then I got out my hot glue gun out and glued the twigs to the canvas.  I made a small mini-quilt of Iceland (using my larger quilt as inspiration).  I used the hot glue gun to attach the mini-quilt.   This was a fun project.  Keep having fun sewing and quilting.  Donna
