I've been teasing about this quilt for some time! Unlike a scrap page that is a few hour project, a quilt requires a much large commitment! Not to mention all those butterfly antennas that needed to be hand embroidered.
I picked it up the other day from Cricket's Crafts and then was lucky enough to get some time in the middle of the day to visit my Gram in her nursing home. We "think" she confirmed that these hankies had belonged to her Mom.
I thought that hanging the quilt next to her plates that I blogged about last week was fitting. And below a photo of her & Grandpa.
The quilt hanger is a pressure hanger. It was quite the find for $8 down at the Corning ReStore.
I could have ordered one for $80 that was hardwood, but I was having trouble with that concept as I knew I'd either want to paint it black or white. So it was awesome to find one that just needed some sanding and some spray paint.
Good thing I have three very handy dandy spray painting stumps...was just what I needed!
That little corner makes me so happy now! Super pretty!
Hope your Monday is awesome!
