Ever wonder how a 30' quilt gets hung?
Here you go!

You may recall me showing you the quilt in Progress, "A Garden for All Seasons", which hung at Spring Paducah.... Video


      (many pics at instagram as well. you all follow me there right? victoriafindlaywolfe )

 Well It's gone to hang at it's new home!
Simplicity Creative Groups new offices...


Me and a few peeps, did a...One, Two and a Three, and up it went... All 28 lbs of it...








And that's how it's done! We used NoSeeUms quilt system,  to hang this beast.  Easy to hang!
I'm honored to have found this a quilt home at Simplicity.  Lucky for me that their 40' wall needed a quilt I happened to have. LOL Be sure to watch the video above for info about the quilt... Quilted By Shelly Pagliai who posted about it here.

Home from Festival of Quilts

What a fabulous time we all had in UK! We have just returned from the Festival of Quilts, where I had an exhibit of my Double Wedding Ring Quilts, and My NEW work from new Book, MODERN QUILT MAGIC. The exhibit spaces are gorgeous! All hard walls, white, clean and bright! It was a real treat having the quilts on display and to get so many people!


It was a very busy show, and it was really fun to see which quilts people were drawn too.   As quilters, we like to hang our work in Quilt shows so we have things to look at and get inspired by! So keep entering your quilts!!!  Or we wont' have quite shows to see the beautiful work!






Get your copy of MODERN QUILT MAGIC!! It is arriving soon!







Don't forget we now carry the Acrylic template set for the BRIGHT LIGHTS/ FLORID BLOOM template set!!!

and!  We will be having a booth at the Houston Quilt Festival this year!  As soon as I know the booth number, you will know!
