For the Love of Quilting
WARNING Quilting is addicting.
For anyone who is not involved with this wonderful past time already, be warned that in the early stages you will think of little else. It is, however, a very gratifying hobby.
It all started with a night class - Introduction to Quilting. As an avid crafter and one who likes to stitch in many other mediums, this seemed to be a normal progression in the learning curve. Of course, as with many things we enjoy doing, it takes a back seat everyday life. A quilt block would get finished one-month and perhaps another one in three or four months. There was never once a consideration to quilt. The collection of material continued to grow with the knowledge that someday it would be the foundation of treasured comfy quilts. Eventually, blessed with a little more spare time another class was taken. This one was on machine quilting.
Although hand quilting is the first love, machine quilting is equally enjoyable; and here at Comfy Country Creations, you are offered a mixture of both.

Tips on Displaying Your Quilt
If your quilt is to be displayed as a wall hanging, there should be a sleeve attached to the back to the quilt to facilitate a rod.
Again, avoid direct sunlight or continual artificial light.
When showing off your quilt on a quilt rack or wooden shelf, place a double piece of washed unbleached muslin between the wood and the quilt. This may not be necessary if the wood has been sealed with paint or polyurethane varnish.
Tabletops are another popular place to display your quilt. For protection, cover with glass or plexiglass cut to fit the shape of the table. Be sure to air regularly to prevent mold and mildew. Also reposition the quilt often to keep permanent creases from forming.
