A Great Idea

I’m getting ready to go out the door, ed heading up to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. All of the Shaker style hangers that I have for sale on my website are sold, so I needed to get more from the Amish man that makes them for me. Of course since I am in that area I’ll be antiquing for you, and I am hoping to find lots of new items.

I had an email from Anne Hermes the other day. She is an artisan in the American Artisan Store. She makes wonderful miniature quilts out of early fabrics. This is one of my favorites. I have always loved the log cabin design.

She sent a photo showing me how she is using my Shaker style hangers to display her wonderful quilts and her her own home. I loved her idea and wanted to share with you.

She simply attached velcro to the hanger and the quilt. Easy! It would work equally as well with either hanger. The photo below shows the back of the hanger.

If you love early textiles, this is a great way to display them on a peg rack or wall. Did I mention that they are made of early wood from old salvaged shelves from a dilapidated early cupboards, and they are copied from early Shaker hangers. I love that!

Happy day!
