Yes, I have hung yet another quilt on the wall. I find that it makes me happy to look at quilts every day.
The quilt you can see reflected in the mirror was one of my first quilts, hand-stitched and hand-quilted back in the early nineties.
Of course you can’t see it. You simply get some material (I always used good muslin.) I then cut a piece of muslin where the finished piece would equal the width of the quilt, by about 4-6 inches.
I ironed the hems in. Then I hand-stitched those hems all the way around. (I didn’t have a sewing machine at the time.)
Then I sewed it to the top back of the top of the quilt with a hidden stitch.
So, at least in my book, that is the way to properly hang a quilt. There are other ways. But this was the way I always chose.
The addition of this quilt means I have three quilts on the walls of my bedroom. (Extra insulation!)
Obviously I love my quilts, and don’t want to hide them all away. But I didn’t make every quilt in my apartment.
No, they can’t get any more of these gold/yellow and white quilts. Many of you have asked. I just love it!
Now to the door problem I had…
Many of the residents of these patio four-plexes buy a storm door for their apartment. I did before I moved in. And I hired the same guy to install it for me that came out yesterday.
People who live here tend to stay awhile. There are residents who have lived here more than 20 years. You don’t often see that in rental apartments. I have seen some plant trees in their little front yards!
It was quite labor-intensive. It took him six hours. He had all his equipment, like saws, set up outside. It was laborious to drill into the concrete.
I watched him and I am quite pleased with what he did.
Israel happened to be on call, and he found some weather stripping and brought it to the guy, and he put that up as well.
No, the complex would not pay to have this done. Having a storm door is not part of your rental agreement.
Many of you question my paying this money when I just rent here. Here is how I look at things: Embrace your space.
