A Crafter's Life

A “Functional” Quilt

Happy 4th of July, hope you all are enjoying your hopefully 3-day weekend.

I am re-posting a tierneycreates post from August 2014 (Properly Hung!) on a truly functional use for a quilt (besides keeping warm).

It continues to make me smile knowing something I made is being used as art and in a very creative functional way!

Properly Hung! (8/24/2014)

I received delightful news the other day from my dear friend in Austria – the quilt I made his son has now been “properly hung”.

The quilt, whimsical house blocks done in a Scandinavian palette (my friend is originally from Denmark), is not just “properly hung” on the wall of his house – it is FUNCTIONALLY HUNG!

There is  an electrical panel in the hallway of their house and they creatively hung the quilt with a special frame that both disguises the electrical box and gives easy access! Brilliant, eh?
