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.
Here’s another view:
And one more:
(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.)
