DQS 10 finished

One thing down, just a few more to go. Sorry about it being crooked. I had to use a bit of tape and snap the picture before it fell off my brick wall. LOL

If anyone has any ideas of how I can hang my quilt on my wall for pictures I would love to know. I really love the brick backdrop but not sure how to hang my quilts up there.

So my partner and I have different taste. I was taking a chance with these colors and style. I am not used to this, but I really like how it turned out. Although I don’t normally do brights I think I picked the right pattern, quilting and fabric.

Should send at the end of the month, until then it will sit happily in my view!

it's beautiful Amy! I'm sure that your partner will love it! I need to do some serious work on mine. I think it will come together quickly enough but working on it will help. ;)

Very fun DQ! It's good to stretch past your comfort zone once in a while. :-)

As to how to hang quilts on your brickwork...well, other than putting a nail or two into it, I don't know. If you can do that, then if you don't have a sleeve on the quilt, you can use binder clips ~ I use them all the time to hang my small quilts.
