    What a beautiful treasure, in so many ways!

    The wooden hanger is a bow. Never thought about it being a dress or angel - just a quilt display to me. The weight of it does make it drape nicely. My MeMaw does haunt me if having her words in my head, her model in how I shaped my life and her memories in my heart count. Rarely a day goes by that her influence doesn't show - and she's been gone nearly 30 years. So much of what I do with my grands is based on what she did with me.

    However, they will NOT be watching me make a cathedral window quilt!

    So many quilts, so little time.

    beautiful I used to watch my mom work on one which has dissapeared so this past year I started one. It is a slow process but very rewarding. I think my 4 children may only get pillows at the rate I am going! You have enspired me to pull out my box of supplies even in this heat!

    Oh, what a very clever way to hang something so special! I love it!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Jan, I'm so glad that you inherited this quilt. The memories that you have of her & this quilt are what you are cherishing. What you wrote was very touching & your thoughts of her will always be your best ones. I love the way she did it & your display just really sets it off.

    For those wanting to make a Cathedral Window, go to youtube. There's several tutes there, some by hand, some by machine. All are interesting.

    Your grandmother was a talented and patient quiltmaker. That is simply gorgeous and I LOVE the way you display it. Looks tremendous.

    What a strange hanger ... it looks like a headless woman standing there! Otherwise, a very pretty quilt.
