I Hung My Four Seasons Quilts Myself

 

I am feeling REALLY SUCCESSFUL this afternoon.

I finished my “Four Seasons” quilts and hung them myself this afternoon.

LOOK!

Here’s another view:

(There are close-ups for these quilts earlier on the blog–though I added more “falling blossom” buttons to “Spring” last night.)

(And a reminder that these quilts were inspired by Sarah Fielke’s quilt in MATERIAL OBSESSIONS 2–and I used her tree-trunk template.)

I found the nice white rods at Loews about a week ago.

Each rod has 4 nails–which required a trip to the hardware store this morning for a box of “just right” nails.   AND, all the nails had to be lined up perfectly both horizontally and vertically–which took the 4-foot level I purchased last summer.  (It’s such a useful tool.)

The hanging took a bit of math, a ladder, a footstool, patience, no panic, etc., etc., etc.

Boy am I happy with how they look hanging.

The quilt you see on the bed was a gift from the Coastal Quilters when John got really, really sick.  Isn’t it beautiful?

I have spent some time this year making this room a pretty bedroom/office (for me).  I reframed some pictures John took–and one of our wedding.  Melody Pendleton painted it.  I consolidated all the “office” stuff–and moved my work space into the office space. I’m almost done.

(The little hand-made doll is a version of one I gave a granddaughter on her third birthday.  Her younger sister will get this one on her third birthday.  There are blog posts on these dolls here.)

  2. I love this room! And love the Four Seasons quilt. Other than the lovely quilt on our bed the one on this bed is my other favorite!
