Um, Haven't This Quilt Been Shown ALOT??!!!
Yes, indeed it has. BUT, the reason that I am showing this again is to show you my good idea! I got the label embroidered, and stitched to the back of the quilt, then started to think about what type of sleeve I wanted to sew on the back to hang it on the wall. I hate sewing on sleeves. Then, kaboom, I had the good idea to mount a curtain rod on the wall and CLIP the quilt to it. The curtain rod can be stretched out to hang bigger things, too. Easy, peasy. I have a couple of other quilts to hang up (neither have a rod pocket sleeve) so I think I better go get another curtain rod. Hope I don't overdo this look. You never can tell about me. I also got 14 corn bags sewn for Peter and his brother in law. I know, I needed to make 16 - 8 for each, but I ran out of corn. Also accomplished was a potholder made from some string pieced squares that are a bit off-kilter. On the cabin front, most of the windows on the original first floor were replaced today. They look good and nice and weather tight. While the curtains were down I thought I should throw them in the wash to freshen. They are looking a bit faded from the sun. I suppose I should add new kitchen curtains to my to-do list. In the meantime, I will put the old ones up and enjoy their clean scent. Jerilynn
