    A $5.00 curtain rod and pieces of a metal coat hanger. Now I can take photographs of the quilts I make and stand back far enough to get the whole quilt in the shot.

    The real pattern is "Planned Patch Hood" from quilterscache. I had one block laid out and like it even better so I went with that. I call it "Four Patch Surrounded".

    Very nice!!! Sometimes it's hard to find human quilt holders for those pictures. Looks like that will work out great!!

    Great idea. My DH is making me a design board - just brought home the foam stuff today. It is going to be 6' by 8' - can't wait. Aren't husbands great?

    What an excellent idea! He's an "electrical genius" as the saying goes in our household. The quilt is awesome!

    What a great idea! Your quilt is outstanding! I love that pattern. Really love the one similar to yours that looks like a "plus sign." I just call it the plus sign block. Quilter's Cache has the best patterns! What a great hubby you have to do something so sweet like that! Kudos! :thumbup: :thumbup:
