    hoosierinTexas

    I am originally from Indiana but have lived in Texas for the last 28 years. I have been sewing and quilting since I was 8 years old. I recently graduated from UT but got diagnosed with breast cancer this past June. I am finishing my last treatment of chemotherapy. I want to make a landscape quilt for the brick wall just outside my front door with maybe 3 smaller quilts hanging in front. I would love suggestions on what to use to make the quilts (canvas/oilcloth?) and how to protect them from the sun and rain. I look forward to any ideas to help me with this project. I hope my energy returns soon so I can try them out.

    Welcome from Michigan. Hope your energy returns rapidly. I know what that is like. I never hung a quilt outside but how about in a plexiglass box.....

    Hi and welcome to the board from Iowa. I am looking forward to seeing pic of your landscape quilt(s).
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    Welcome from Elvis Country! Blessings for finishing your chemotherapy. Your energy may not be 100% but your creativity/imagination is going full-speed. Your idea is very interesting. I have never thought of doing something for an outside wall. Will think about this and watch what other have to suggest. Wishing you sunshine and hugs today. Linda
