Night Traveler Trouble

Now that "Night Traveler" is really finished - I promise I won't sew another bead to it - I had it set up on my new design wall to get some decent digital photos and Colin went on and on about how it should be hung vertically and not horizontally. I can't come to a conclusion and won't sew a sleeve on it until I decide what to do. I wonder if people ever put on two sleeves so that a quilt can be hung either way? I don't even want to think about the technical fine points of that trick at the moment.

I just finished putting a sleeve on "Spontaneous Construction" and right now I am wondering if it exceeds the 40" maximum size for entries to the Lower Town Arts District Quilt Walk in Paducah... just let me go upstairs and find that tape measure....
SON OF WHORING BITCH! It's 41 by 44 inches! I wonder just how strict they are. Oh well, there are other shows elsewhere, I guess. This size restriction crap is working my last nerve because I do not make quilts with venues in mind. Hell and damn. Shitfire, I am going to bed.

Okay, I must leave a comment...I've become a regular reader of your blog...looking at Night Traveler reminded me of a crochet underslip that I inherited from my aunt who passed away last January. This aunt raised my oldest sister and, well, starring at your piece a design came to me to incorporate the slip into a quilt with my sister as a very young girl in the slip holding flowers with an imposing image of my aunt behind her...soooo, with that being given to me...I wanted to say hello.
Peace, Karoda

Thanks Karoda. The cotton doily was one of jillions that my grandmother cranked out and the cutwork lack table runner was probably hers too. I remember that almost every surface in her home was covered with something she made or won at Bingo.
