What's On Your Wall Wednesday

A new treat to watch is What's On Your Wall Wednesday being hosted by Barb at Grits and Glamour. Go see what things people are placing on their walls.

I am a quilt fan! I've quilted and own several quilts, wallhangings, miniature quilts, and table-runners. Several years ago our church had a drama group that performed the musical "Quilters". The drama group decided to make some added funds by putting together a quilt and then having a silent auction for the quilt. The participants and some of their friends made any quilt blocks they desired. Only requirement was the measurement of each block. We all took turns hand quilting it after it had been put together. It made a quilt sized for a king-size bed. We auctioned the quilt and made $800 for the mission projects. Those of us who helped with the quilt felt like we were losing "our" quilt so before the owner took possession of it, one of the artists in our church sketched the quilt with "pen and ink". Anyone who participated in the making of the quilt was given a print. I had mine matted and framed.


My print hangs in one of my bathrooms which has a "quilt theme". I'd like to think that things I have hanging on my wall have some personal connection with me and not just a random thing to fill a space. This is a treasure to me. It holds so many memories.

Pammie Jo - that is a phenominal pencil drawing. I cannot imagine the hours upon hours it must have taken. Wonderful! Thank you so much for joining my first WOYWW. I look forward to seeing many more posts. Blessings, Barb
