Today is Show and Tell Friday at Kelli's House. Today I would like to show you one of my most prized possessions.
This is a hand quilting frame that my husband bought me for our anniversary early in our marriage while on our annual anniversary trip to the mountains. Every year we try to visit a little quilting shop located way out in the country in Tennessee, called Holloways Country Home. This store is in an old home and is stocked full of every kind of quilting supply or fabric you can think of. The store even has a "husband's room" where husbands can lounge on a couch, watching tv and drinking coffee while their wives shop. (aka - spending money with the owner!) LOL
While shopping there on one of our trips, my hubby spotted these quilting frames, and insisted that I have one of my own. Thanks Sweetie!
Unlike my grandmother's old timey quilting rails, this one is small enough to use in the living room and folds flat for storage like this:
Here it is set up ready for a quilt. If only I had one ready to put in there!
This is what it looks like with a quilt in it.
I'm ready to hand quilt another quilt and intend to leave the quilting frame set up in this spot. The fall and winter will be here before you know it and now is the time to get those quilts ready for quilting, especially during the cooler months.
