Fly’em High…

Well she is hung!  Finally got a sleeve on Settler’s Pride and ended up slipping a curtain rod through her.  This was a major hang so I had to get Mr. Sweet P involved  (he hates it when I call him that…:o) but we got her up without falling off the ladder or putting the hammer through the wall.  I’m not too happy with the curtain rod as she doesn’t hang flat to the wall…I will ‘quietly’ change it to a flat slat of wood later…I can see a trip to Home Depot is in order!

So the only wall in the house that was big enough to house her was in the family room… The walls are painted a sage green so she feels right at home!

A close-up..the walls are much darker but show up this light green…

She had to be hung high as the stairs leading down to the family room are right there…

You get the idea.   P1140698

Hey…do you see my Lori Smith…hanging at the bottom of the landing…It’s called Fit to Frame Number 13…wool seems to be taking over!!

A view towards the kitchen…

The view from the kitchen…the rubber tree is going to need a hair cut!  It has gotten a little unruly…but it’s one of the ONLY plants that I haven’t managed to kill SO FAR!  A few snips aren’t going to hurt…right?

This is an old lead glass window that I bought at an Auction…good story goes with this one but will save it for another day…anyways I use it as a room divider between the kitchen and family room.    P1140694

Hmmm….I wonder if that white beam is a load bearing beam??… “Mr. Sweet P…can you GET THE SAW OUT!!..please!!  haha”  Just kidding!

Have a Wonderful Woolie Wednesday and Happy Quilting!~P!

  11. Wow Paulette, your Settler's Pride looks just beautiful hanging there! Is that Fit to Frame the one you had in your header last year? After admiring it every day when I'd read your blog, I finally broke down some time ago and made one myself with wool, but haven't decided yet how to best join all the squares together. I thought the seams might be too bulky if I just stitched them together with 1/4" seams as I would cotton. How did you join yours? Did you stitch each square to a solid backing?

  27. Perfect place for this quilt
    I have admired this quilt for a very long time and when I was in Lancaster this past spring I ordered it as a bom as I don't have a wool collection
    i am going to start it in Sept, can't wait now that I see yours hanging.
    it is just beautiful. Kathie
