I was just in my sewing room and tripped over my grandsons hula hoops, again, and had a thought.... I have had an idea about making a round quilt but want it to hang on the wall in a perfect circle with no drooping. I think I am going to use a hula hoop, make a pocket sleeve for it, and it should take care of that problem. It will be very light weight and will also hold a significant amount of weight too, as I used part of one to make a circular curtain rod in the past to hide a hot water heater. I think it could be cut to get it into the sleeve, and epoxy glued back together again. I have small hoops here for the boys, but have seen them in a couple of more sizes. I think I will head to some toy stores and check out what they have before these summer toys disappear until next spring LOL
Does anyone else have any ideas or thoughts in regards to this idea?
