After nixing further work on a large string quilt, intended for our BIG stairwell wall, I decided to dig out some quilts I made back in the early days. As you all know, I'm no longer particularly fond of piecing......though that construction method was my entry point into quiltmaking in the mid 1980's.
I truly CAN NOT believe I actually pieced this complex quilt....and hand quilted it. My memory led me to believe that these older quilts were too small for the wall. Apparently not!
It's still a bit wavy at the bottom after being folded for far too long, but it should hang out nicely. The hardest part in replacing a quilt for this space is getting the wooden quilt hanger off the wall and back up! The feet of a tall extension ladder rest on the stairway and the top leans against the wood ceiling.
The previous quilt was removed and replaced with this Storm At Sea quilt. "The husband" spent his career in the scaffolding business and thankfully is not afraid of heights!!
