How to Hang Your Quilts
We put quilts on beds. Use them as throws on couches and chairs. And put runners on our tables. But how many of us hang quilts on our walls? Lindsay Mayland shares creative ideas for hanging quilts with and without a hanging sleeve.
Sweet, Quilty Home: Week 5
We are so excited to share all these tips about hanging your quilts, because this week’s Sweet, Quilty Home challenge is to hang a quilt on your wall! For those who don’t know, our Sweet, Quilty Home challenge is something we’re hosting on the podcast and social media! This challenge will last for 10 weeks this summer (July 6-September 13). This program focuses on creating your best home -- a beautiful place to relax and be creative. Each week, we'll issue a challenge: one small step you can take throughout the week to brighten your home and set your space up for sewing success. If you participate, you can use the hashtag #sweetquiltyhome on Instagram.
Lindsay then interviews Johnny Barfuss, a talented machine quilter, Studio Educator for Handi Quilter, modern quilter, and new dog owner. Johnny shares the emotional story behind his "Out of the Darkness" quilt, how he combines traditional designs with a modern aesthetic, and what he loves about machine quilting, including his Forte longarm machine. (You can see a quilt he quilted for our website here.)
