Album: Photos:QuiltHanger

The first quilt hanger was for Kaela Bench, which I donated to the February 2012 Have a Heart Hop charity auction. The design is from my neighbor, who has built several of these. The wood is all white oak, finished with clear satin poly. For the 2014 Have a Heart Hop, I ended up making two, one for Denise Taplin and one for Lisa Deline. Denise chose red oak, Lisa chose cherry.
