I got the painting finished and the quilts re hung and the window treatments finished on the bay window.
It turns out I have one more window to do 😦 I got ahead of myself and for some reason forgot that window needed to match . I have to make one more valance and hang a sheer curtain and it is cool enough now to take the AC unit out for the season.
I had a few questions about how I hang the quilts. The way I do it is not recommended by most “experts” but it works well for me. The recommended way to hang a quilt always requires adding a hanging sleeve to the back and then inserting a long pole . I only add hanging sleeves to quilts that are entered in shows (it really isn’t hard to do but it is a bit boring) so I use curtain rods. Nothing fancy but the rings are the kind with little clips.
the clips hold the quilt well.
There is the possibility of the quilt becoming distorted or wavy along the top edge from the clips, but it hasn’t been an issue for me before and I had one hanging this way for over a year. I do plan to change them often so I am not worried.
The wall color doesn’t like to photograph well but this pic is close .
Teddy decided it was best to sit on the sofa (out-of-the-way) and watch.
Now that I have that nearly done I think it is going to be hard not to paint the next room…..and the sewing room…..and…………….
