It is a sunny 54 degree day here in North Iowa – the air is warm and there’s no wind! It was time to retire Wear Warm Clothes until next January and replace it with Trip Around the World that I finished last winter.
Now before any of you ask how I hang quilts, here are my tools.
Please notice that my walls are actual wood – soft pine that I can staple into very easily. They are not paneling which you can’t staple into. I’ve also done this with dry wall but you have to be careful not to staple in the same area each time. I know I’ve posted this before but I don’t think you understand that the staple is not going to damage the quilt. And even if it did, I wouldn’t care because I’ll always be making another quilt of some kind. Easy come, easy go!
Brrr also came down in the entry.
Replaced with Devils Claw.
Here’s the red and white Big Star – available in the online shop as a pdf download. Will hang in the house soon.
(It took me almost 6 hours to bind this quilt by hand because of my stiff arthritic fingers! I hate getting old!!!)
This area is one I’d like to change – these little quilts have been up for 8 years now – I think they should come down. What do you think?
This could be my new goal – making small quilts for this area.
This quilt has been identified by many as Christmas Pickle by Linda and Nancy of Possibilities and the Great American Quilt Factory, old friends that we knew years ago. I was able to order a used copy from Amazon – I’m definitely going to make this quilt – I already knew how I would draft it but now I won’t have to. Yay!!
The snow is melting and we have mud but we also have spring! I love it!
