Yesterday I finally got round to hanging my
beautiful quilt from Mary@ Molly Flanders.
Now this is something new to me,
as usual my attempt was somewhat adhoc.
If you want to see how it should be done please hop over to
Stitched in color who yesterday also posted a great how to!
If you prefer to wing it with whatever you have
stick with me!
The idea is to make tubes of fabric with which to hold a piece of dowel.
Ever the corner cutter, I struck on this old apron that I'd been chopping up.
The ties made perfect tubes for the dowel.
That's one step down.
Now all I had to do was hand stitch the three tubes to the back of the quilt.
I chose three tubes as this seemed to hold the quilt straighter.
I did feel strange sewing my stitches on to Mary's quilt,
I like how my addition is so me!!
After cutting my dowel with a saw on the kitchen work surface,
I placed it through the stitched tubes.
Next step bang two nails in the wall,
using the hammer as a measuring implement.
Spirit level? I have eyes.
So there we have it.
One beautiful quilt hung.
How can I possibly go wrong now that Mary has my back!
In case you didn't know I'm a big lover of independence.
Indie music, indie movies and indie quilters!
Are you an indie girl like me?
