Quilt Hangers…

I have had so many requests about the quilt hangers I use to hang my quilts in my home.  I did not want to tell you about them unless I had a source…My cousin Scott who is the same age as I, and is probably my closest of cousins…came to work for me almost a month ago…

He has been a home builder for 30 years and has had enough of the cold and the climbing and wants to preserve what left of his beat up body…so now he is working on many many projects for us…the first being these quilt hangers…

Here is Scott putting the the “quilt room” shelving he made and installed for me at Anchor Point (home)…this turned so awesome…you may have seen it in an earlier post filled with quilts.IMG_9422here it is again…it is that glorious…right?

Here are the hangers in action in my home…shown with no quilt…this the the 3 foot wide one…

They really add a nice touch to any room…these two hangers are located on each side of this cased opening…

This is the 4 foot long hanger, this one is in my bedroom…you might want more of the quilt showing …or just have the option of a small quilt or a large one…this quilt could be spread out wider or it is nice as it is too!!
So here are your options…they come black, white, grey, stained brown (like the backdrop in the photo at the top of the post) or plain/no finish…I was thinking maybe you could want them the same color as the wall?? I also want to note that they come with a little sanded off edges…you cannot see it it the photo shown here…We also will have a limited number of them at the shows…but color options might be limited.

They are 23″ long(tall) and 36″ or 48″ wide…we have ordered special double walled boxes for shipping and this will be added to your shipping cost- the shipping will be calculated exactly…we will call you and to let you know what that charge will be…we do not want to guess- we do not want to make or lose any money on shipping so we will want to handle that after your order is placed and we are ready to ship.  All of this info will be on our website…you can order HERE.  They are $55 or the 3 foot aned $70 for the 4 foot.

I have recently arrived home from our quilting cruise to Haiti, Jamaica and Cozumel MX just in time to change out the quilts for Easter…Hope you enjoy these beautiful antiques.

Spring decorating…featuring antique quilts and hand made decor…

Just before I left for California I decorated the house for Spring…we had a few nice days and we all are anxious for it to stay….So I can think no better idea than to bring in March with some spring decor…

The first thing I did was change the quilts in the cupboard….I have never showcased my pastel/1930’s quilts before…I never knew I had this many….I do not “collect” 30’s quilts…not my era….well…for someone who doesn’t collect them I have at least 20!  How did this happen?  I collect 1800’s and /civil war era quilts…So why do I have 20- 1930’s quilts?  BECAUSE…as a quilt collector I am also drawn to the “pattern” of the quilt not just the fabrics…If I see a cool/unique pattern I don’t care how old the quilt is…it is coming home with me.  Some of these are in such great condition too…I will showcase a few of them this Spring…and tell you what I can about them…

So in March we all can be Irish for a little while….I did 23& me recently…I am 100% eastern european…I know…pretty boring right?…now I think Ireland is in eastern Europe..but I knew going in for the test I was Dutch/German and Polish…so who knows maybe I have a distant Irish cousin or something…so why not celebrate with the Irish…and when looking for a March quilt for decorating can you think of a better find…lucky shamrock leaves!!! 

Maybe you are on IG (Instagram)? and seen my table quilt…I love simple table decorations…and I throw a “seasonal” quilt on the table and the appropriate seasonal centerpiece…this satisfies my taste for simple decorating without too much fuss.  I love  two color quilts for home decorating…this quilt would even look great at Christmas time with red poinsettias…they are so versatile.

Now for a few pics of the rest of the “spring decor”…

Cute little egg holder…with some felted easter eggs…. I think the egg holder was from pottery barn…

How about a few “chocolate” eggs…I believe this pattern is from “Little Stitches” by Debbie Lofgren, the pattern had pastel eggs…well mine had to be chocolate…the bunny is again Pottery Barn.

I spend a lot of time at this spot…for some reason I like to do dishes by hand..I do not like what the dishwasher does to my pots and pans, and anything plastic so I’d much rather do them by hand… I just found this sweet little clock for my kitchen…do you believe I do not have one wall space appropriate for any type of clock??  So this works for now…I also store my Dawn dishwashing liquid in an old fashioned glass pitcher…

Behind the kitchen in the hall…3 little daffodils…simple.

Kitchen overview…taken from the lake side of the house.

closer…

View from the opposite corner…I have no idea what that black square is…it is not in my photo.

Living Room…

I need to work on a “spring” pillow for the couch… Give away PRIZE for the first one…who knows what the plaid on the couch pillows represents, comment on this post…you are disqualified if you are close enough to me to already know.  You know who you are so…let someone else win.

I need to make another one of these so I can have it at home!!!! I love my little Irish Blessing Clip board, or these can be hung on the wire stands that we have seen everywhere.

I will have a whole series of these…to get started with this one click HERE to order a pattern or Kit & pattern!  It is simple enough to make in a day for your Corned Beef & Cabbage party!!!

I will be posting soon again…all for now,

Lisa
