Birds of a Feather Quilt Finished
Well, can I start by saying that I waited and waited and waited for my local sewing shop to get the thread for this quilt ordered into their store. Then, I decided to order from an online store here in Australia. They sent me the wrong thread and then said they would reimburse me if I sent it back and they would cover the shipping costs. I did that and they reimbursed me for my shipping it back but not what I paid to have them ship it to me! They spent 4$ to ship it to me, I spent 1$ shipping it back. Can I just tell you that I am not at all satisfied with the way Australian businesses handle customer service??? So, I ordered the thread from Joann's in America and had it sent to my mom who then forwarded to me---all faster than I could get it here in Australia. No wonder most people over here do their fabric and sundry buying from America! I can tell you, it's not for lack of trying to give the locals the opportunity!
So, anyway, I finished quilting my Birds of a Feather quilt and I absolutely love it! It's going to be a wall hanging so the heavy quilting is perfect to add texture and to make it lay flat. Now I just have to figure out a way to hang it on the wall. Make a sleeve to use to hang it? Does anyone know of any good instructions to do this? I'm going to hang it over Alexander's crib. I love this quilt so much I want to make another one... We shall see...
