    Great idea. I have the windows, but in the wrong room. Maybe I can put them over the door wall in my sewing room. I'll have to think about it. Only wall space left!

    You have come up with a clever solution.

    My sewing room is in the basement, and the bottom half of the wall is made of stained, rough wood, the top half is painted drywall, framed by smaller pieces of the same wood.

    I strung wire between the sections of one of the walls, running the wire through the springs on clothespins. Makes a wonderful display area for quilts in progress. Similar idea, but more clothespins and easier to DIY.

    I can take work up and down to sew. For me having a spot to display and view from a distance is nice.

    I can see using a similar oak strip as a way to display finished work.

    Love the quilt (I guess the Orca Bay) it's colors are what I have been looking for. The blocks look spectacular.
    Enjoy the day, Chickadee_42us
