It’s on the wall!

I just realized I never shared a picture of my completed Canada Quilt after I finished it in January.  I was waiting to get it hung on the wall.  My dad made a quilt hanger especially for it (thanks Dad!) and brought it on his recent visit.  Here it is, filling a space on the very plain wall at the top of the stairs.

It hangs straighter than I hoped for, which is nice.  I think when I get around to inserting a dowel into the little corner pockets on the back of the quilt that tiny ripple will be taken care of.

I’m so happy to finally enjoy this one out on display!

  3. The piecing is beautiful, and the quilting is fantastic! Glad you will get to enjoy it hanging, rather than packing it away somewhere. ---"Love"

  4. It looks fantastic. I forget about that little dowel trick sometimes. Now that you have jogged my memory, I need to get some dowels myself! ;-)
