Quilts & The Foyer

We have a foyer wall in our home that has always been a challenge.  It seems wider than the furniture I have available to place on the wall.  Or maybe it is just me, I want a change.  Not sure, but I have been doing some different arrangements, just to try to make it interesting.  First I put a grouping of things, sorry no photo, but basically a hodge-podge of things.  It was ok for a while---to quote hubby "it grows on you".  I don't think that is a positive comment???   Anyway, I really didn't like it, wasn't me, but it was different.  The other day I started looking at the wall and thought "quilts".  Maybe if I take down some of the things and add a couple of my little quilts.  So that is what I'm going to do.  Far from complete, my goal will be a total of about 5 or 6 quilts.  To start off, Civil War Nine Patch and Hannah Lou's Hearts has been added.

Hannah Lou's Hearts
I made this quilt a few years ago.  It was inspired by Jude Hill's technique of layering fabrics.  The little quilt is 11 x 12 inches and has appliqued hearts from the Dear Jane pattern book, charms and lots and lots of hand quilting.  This little quilt was a real joy to make, a break from traditional quilting techniques.

This  photo---shows just a small of the foyer wall.  May look strange, but I'll explain as more quilts are added and things are removed.  Stay tuned!  Happy Quilting!
