Oh! What fun it was to put up these little quilts! It was not as hard as I thought it would be. They sat there waiting for me to hang them for weeks! I finally jumped in and started last night. It only took about 10 minutes! What was I scared of?!?
These quilts will be on the far end of my quilting/sewing room, which is half of the open basement! I am a lucky gal and am so thankful to be able to spread out for sewing. This wall is just past the quilting frame, which you can see just a bit at the bottom of the picture.
Since adding the quilt frame to my sewing room, it's a huge mess down there! The problem is that when I rearranged, things came out from under the tables that we re against the walls. I am still looking for storage solutions. Having these all hung up will help me to finish and get organized! Straight pins were used to barely tack them to the wall. I will be getting some Command Strips and use the hook tape and put that on the wall under each quilt. The hook tape will grab to the fabric fibers and hold them up! I know this works because The Rabbit's Lair used this hanging method when my quilts were there on display! It was amazing! Taking them up and down should be very easy when I vend and need to take some of these quilts along.
Some of these are from the late 80's, some are from the mid 90's, some from the early 2000’s ( Do we call that the turn of the century? The Millenium?) and some you will recognize from my past posts! I may switch them up a bit once I get the command strips on the wall. The bottom edge is a bit uneven and I need to decide if all edges should be uneven or if I leave it as is for the most part. We'll see what I end up with!
For now, they are out of the way and getting me a bit inspired to keep organizing! And, they are off of the frame so I can get my quilting machine set up this week! Yeah!
Take care and thanks once more to all of you who made a purchase during the Cyber Special!
