Slow Stitching Sunday

I so hope for a little slow stitching today! I got a bit done on the drive out here, but not as much as I expected.

And this isn’t even complete.

I hope to finish that seam today. I also want to figure out what to do about this.

I bought this quilt hanger ages ago and never realized until now that it is warped. I can’t keep the ends of my quilt in no matter how hard I turn the knobs.

Ugh. Oh well. Not the end of the world, just another challenge along the way.

Have a great day!

About katyquilts

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    Get some of that rubber drawer liner and glue it to one side of the wood. It should grip the quilt and add thickness so it will stays in the holder. Good luck.

    Others have said similar, but I would try and add batting or something thing behind the quilt at each end in the hanger part to make the quilt seem more bulky there than it actually is, I would think that would work then.

    For the quilt hanger: Put a put a stick-on felt pad (the kind for furniture legs) at each end.

    To fix your hanging quilt issue: hand stitch a small triangle on the back corner of the quilt and use a thin piece of wood to hold the corner in place. It needs to be long enough to get held under the ‘good’ part of the quilt hanger.
