this does not include a boat quilt, or "trip around the world quilt. It doesn't include any play quilts, ruffly pillow cases, doll quilts, buntings or pincushions, or heming or mending (bleh!). You can see the posts on these quilts if you go to the "finished quilts" tab at the top of my blog.
This week, I've been hanging some mini's on walls. If they're small, say 24 inches or less across the top, I take the lazy way out and I cheat and use clear push pins.
More than 18 to 24 inches, and you really need to make a sleeve to go across the top, or your quilt will sag. (what it eventually looks like if your pin is not in the corner)
This is the boat quilt that lives out of state and didn't make it in the "2014 quilt" photo shoot.
I'm trying a new method for hanging larger mini's,
by sewing on several "Command Strips" along the top .
You can put some on the bottom, but I prefer to just let it hang naturally.
works in progress for this week include,
piecing this back:
for this grandson,
for this airplane quilt (more on that in a future post, including tutorial)
It features "Doe". Carolyn Friedlander's newest line. I JUST got an email from Fat Quarter Shop telling me that it's now available for retail in their store, here. You can see more pictures of this fabric in this post. It's a great line for those of us who have to watch our florals (if you know what I mean).
