Tonight I decided to make a 3 picture photo frame from the scraps I had left over from the "My Grandmother's Garden" quilt. I wanted to have some pictures at work of her and what pictures better than of when I gave her the quilt surrounded by fabric from the quilt. I sewed my scraps together until I had lengths long enough for the sides, top and dividers.
The 4-3/4" X 6-3/4" background fabric for the photos is definitely a keeper. That gives a little extra wiggle room without having to shave anything off of a 4x6 photo. While it appears you'll have a full 1/4" of wiggle room keep in mind that the photo corners do take up a bit of space.
I would have cut the strips for the sides, top & bottom at 2-1/2" but I was working with the width of the scraps that I had on hand. Cutting the strip in half yielded 2-3/8". The "dividers" were originally going to be cut at 1-1/2" but the quilting design I wanted to use wasn't going to fit so that size got bumped up a bit. I do like the width of the dividers so I think I would keep it at the 2" cut width for future frames.
I'm pretty happy how it turned out. I think this would make a great gift idea for birthday presents.
Here is is with and without pictures:
