Suburbia Roller Derby was kind enough to hook me up with some hanging space for the quilt this weekend during the WFTDA Eastern Regionals tournament. How nice are they, eh? I couldn't be happier. Well, now that I've figured out a possible way to maybe hopefully hang it up, I couldn't be happier.
You see, the old hanging system was just godawful. I have no desire to ever see binder clips again let alone use the things to hold up a heavy, ten-foot-by-ten-foot quilt. Last night I put our sewing machine through hell attaching a ten-foot tube to house a length of rope. Hopefully this will be sufficient to keep this bugger off the ground for three days.
I'll have to ask if there's a nearby hardware store just in case something goes terribly awry. I hope to avoid spending my trip to regionals standing on a ladder and holding up the quilt with my hands.
