Yipee, work finished today so officially I have no excuse for not quilting. Except I am going shopping tomorrow, visiting friends on Saturday, and going to stay with my sister and then my mother from Sunday. But, hey, I'll get back to it. There's tonight, tomorrow night and Saturday night. I should be able to finish at least 3 projects, right?
I thought I would post a picture of how I got our Symposium entry to hang straight. It is an irregularly shaped quilt and was very sad with just the hanging sleeve.
So this is how I made it hang straight. A series of little mini sleeves across the back of the quilt and some 'half round' wooden trim, with the flat side towards the quilt. I tried dowel but I could see where the sticks were from the front of the quilt. Don't ask me why the supports slope down to the right. I don't know!!
Now it hangs like this:
Much better! For those of you who want to know more about this quilt you can find the full story over on http:/after-the-party.blogspot.com
