I spotted this in our local hardware shop yesterday. I've no idea what it was originally intended for, and I'm absolutely certain it wasn't meant for a quilt ladder, but that's exactly what I plan to use it for. I haven't actually got any quilts sitting around in cupboards waiting to be displayed, so now I've got a reason to make some more!

Taking a leaf out of Jenny at Elefantz's book, I decided to make some door hangers to add to our Christmas display. This is filled with lavender so will smell lovely too. It only took about an hour to stitch and an hour to put together, so I should be able to make several more easily enough.

I have no idea either...but should work for quilts.

In looking thru the window into the garden I saw real interesting items..like the kissing macaws for instance...also the wrought iron item in the middle of the picture...also loved the color/pattern on the drapes.

Have a fun day!

ALWAYS lovely to find reasons to make quilts other than just "I want to make a quilt"
