Default Art Quilts on the Wall

These are two of my early adventures into quilting. Both daughters were taking art lessons, so I scanned each masterpiece into Photoshop to print on iron-on paper with an ink-jet printer. I figured out that the iron-ons would not take a washing, so the quilts were merely "displayed". Fast forward to yesterday. I had all the measurements, tools, and quilt hanging systems. All I needed was a taller person with a drill. "Honey..." Yep, DH to the rescue. I love viewing them!

Fantastic idea. Now you need a wider hall for more to stand and admire these 😁

What a fabulous entrance to an "art gallery", that are great mementos too.

I agree that those quilts/wall hangings are so pretty, and look like they tell stories.
