Synchronicity was one of the themes of the book, and my basic take on it is that whatever you're seeking will happen. And if you stay aware, when opportunities present themselves, you notice and take action.
A few weeks ago, I saw a call for artists in our local paper. One of the local galleries was seeking artists for a show entitled, "Texture". Whoa! I knew that I had to submit some nest pieces to the jury for this show. And I got in! I'm so excited and can't wait for the show and the artist's reception.
I hope your dreams also come true.
Anyway, I had to come up with a hanging system that is different than the 4" sleeve required for quilt shows, and I found a great start on Pinterest. I used 3/8" x 2-1/2" pine boards, 13/16" eye screws, and fishing line. I cut the board to the same length as my sleeves, which were already sewn on to the back of the art quilts. Then I screwed in the eye screws in the center of the boards. After I slipped the boards into the sleeves, I attached the fishing line with several knots on both ends. Now the art quilts can be hung on regular picture hangers or picture nails and the hanging system doesn't show from the front side.
