Quilts brighten the space

I decided it was time to hang some quilts.     I wanted to hand some in the sewing room….but there is not a wall in there that would fit one….those angles doors and windows don’t allow that.  I might need to make some small quilts for that.

I hung this one in the living room.

In the quilting room (where my quilting frame is) I hung this one

and this one over the radio

I have a few more to hang.   I need to get more hardware.

I got more of the piecing done on the new quilt.

It takes a while to put these blocks together …there are ten million match points .

Happy Quilting

    WOW…the handing quilts look amazing! They surely do brighten the space. I absolutely LOVE ALL of them. You are a great inspiration to me to accomplish more hand quilting on my own, and an inspiration to lots of others as well. Thank you!

    The addition of your quilts to your walls look fantastic!! It looks warm and inviting. I assume you gave the Inspector an opportunity to select the ones he felt appropriate to represent you and he……lol. Nice job, Tim😃

    Nicely done! You could open your doors now and give quilt tours! 🙂

    Your quilts are just stunning as wall hangings! I see your eclectic taste in quilts, and I really identify with that. What a beautiful and welcoming space you’ve created. 😊

    I am amazed as I watched you make all those hung quilts – this year – not many work so quickly and purposefully as you.

    The hanging quilts are lovely. Looking at your walls with beautiful quilts on them makes me look around at my walls and think about what quilts I would/should hang. Could you do a post for us about how you hang your quilts? Clearly you are not using the usual hanging sleeve.

    A house isn’t a home until there are quilts on the walls. 🙂 Love yours.

    I really like how the rods and curtain hangers show off your quilts. I have hung mine with sleeves, but I never like sewing them on. I like your way better. And it is so much more flexible for changing the display.

  12. Barbara Bettles says:

    Wonderful display! I really enjoyed it. So nice to see a range of quilts that you have done, and yes, a garden and home tour would be so cool!

    I thought I had left a comment….then it didn’t post….so I will try again….
    Love all the quilts hanging….really brightens up each room …. and, with all the quilts you have, you can change them whenever the mood strikes! I really like how you have used clips instead of a hanging sleeve…looks like it makes them hang more evenly….and a lot easier, and quicker, as well….I am thinking it will make for quick work to change what is hanging.
    Glad to see that Teddy is supervising!
    With all this work, I hope this means that you are feeling better!

      yes…the clips make it fast and flexible! I can change out a quilt in just a few minutes ….. I am feeling better…..still a bit of blurry vision so It is hard to be very accurate in sewing, so Im sticking with simple

    Lovely to see your quilts on display! It really gives us something to think about seeing them day after day. I have to be careful what I hang because I have so much direct sunlight in my house.

    • timquilts says:

      I dont have a lot of sunlight….but I do think I am going to add UV blocking film to the windows. First I need to fix them all so they open/close correctly…..over 100 years of paint build up makes it a challenge

    Thanks for posting these quilts. Looking good! There are two that I hadn’t seen before. Give teddy a pat for being so good and helping you!
