A quilt hanger, beautifully crafted by a dear old man from church out of macracarpa wood. I had wanted one of these for a while, had seen them on people's blogs but hadn't found one to buy in New Zealand. So I printed some ideas from the internet and asked this old friend if he would mind making me one and so he made this and gave it to me on Sunday. I can't wait to see it on the wall and then I can have fun deciding what to put on it - I get a new shelf to decorate as well as a place to hang a quilt. It may be a work in progress, being more of a newbie quilter I don't have a wallhanging all ready to go.
It has inspired me to pull out these ...
I bought this pattern in January 2010 from Village Fabrics in Te Puna, near Tauranga, while on summer holiday near there. I got this far and have Spring to do. I'm thinking this may be an achievable wallhanging to make for my new hanger. Hmmm, perhaps!

Happy stitching, Wendy
