Frame That Hierloom Quilt

We inherited a crazy quilt that was started and never finished by my husbands grandmother. It's dated circa 1910. It measures 25" x 44" and is made with silks. Wanting to preserve it I decided to frame it. I used an acid free backing and put spacers so that the glass doesn't touch the quilt. The one thing I didn't do was buy a glare free glass for it. I plan on doing that. The frame was bought at a thrift store for $ 15.00. A lucky find. We had a friend cut it to fit. It now hangs over our headboard.
The picture looks hazy because of the glare on the glass. It really is beautiful.
Thanks for visiting.
Till next time,
