    This is the first quilt I ever did. I made it 3 years ago. Very basic, easy pattern. But I loved the fabric and the backing is gorgious! I asked my husband to come up with a way to hang it on the wall for me. We have it hanging on the wall at the front door for everyone to see when they first walk in our house!

    I looks so pretty there, I catch myself looking at it hahaha...I know, I am a dork :roll:

    I love your quilt and the hanger is awesome! Just a thought, maybe you could get your husband to make a few and offer to sell them here to us board members. ;-)

    You are anything but a dork you have made something to be proud of and so has your husband when he made that beautiful hanger for you. I always have something I make at the entrance and now all my friends can't wait to check it out.I bet seeing this quilt gives everyone a homey, welcome feeling! Very nice work.

    When you feel that way about a quilt, you know you have done great. Thats why we quilt, to get that feeling of awe when we finish something beautiful. Keep it going, fill your home with beauty.

    Your husbands hanger is as beautiful as your quilt is. I would admire it too. Nice job both of you. (I am showing the hanger to my husband. Think he will get the hint?)

    There're no dorks in quilting! Only quilters admiring their beautiful handiwork! Good job on the quilt and I like the hanger.

    Yes both are beautiful, I think you should get yourself a cup of coffee or tea, pull up a chair and really enjoy the wonderful work you did. :)

    He did a great job. Is the quilt on a sleeve or is it attached in a different way?

    Thank you ladies! You have put a smile on my face and especially my husband's. He is considering making a few and maybe sell them...if there were enough people interested.

    SueDor, the quilt is not hanging on a sleeve. It is pressed between two boards. and the three screws are tightened to hold the two boards together.
