A Quilt Hanging

Today I had a Eureka  moment.  DH was hanging up outdoor Christmas lights and I thought now's the time.

Yep!! time to find a place to hang a quilt. We've lived in this house for over 5 years and in that time no quilts have adorned the walls.

I fossicked around and found nice brass curtain hangers from two houses ago. Got out the stud finder and my lovely man about the house joined in.

DH bought this quilt in a street market in China  23 years ago .  He just told me " on the road to the Entombed Warriors ".  He has always been supportive .

The quilt is paper pieced. I know this because it crunches also while it was having an airing the sun shining through a pale yellow triangle revealed Chinese writing.

The blocks were made by different stitchers and then assembled. The shapes of the animals vary and the needle skills of the maker.  No matter it is nice to have it hanging in the entrance hall.

More important it is a wonderful  gift from my Best Friend.

It's like a double version of the one I have!! How amazing! My parents in law got it about 20 something years ago on the street in China. How funny. I bet they're made by the same people. It's wonderful that you have in hanging so you can enjoy it. Your best friend couldn't have picked a more wonderful gift for you.

Hi, Terry. Just stopped by from Nifty's blog. Your Chinese quilt is really wonderful and looks great on the wall. Also liked your hexagon quilt--nothing like slow stitching to keep your balance! Wishing you a happy holiday season! best from Tunisia, nada
