Kay Sorensen's Art Quilt

Kay Sorensen announced on the QuiltArt list ..... "Quite a few years ago I made a very interesting quilt. It's 18" by 420". It's done with a variety of 1.5" strips of hand dyed fabrics. One side is various greens, yellows and golds alternating with neutrals that can loosely be classified as browns. The other side is various reds, pinks and oranges alternating with neutrals that can be classified as grays and blacks."

How do you hang a 420" long quilt? She purchased a 126" long heavy bronze curtain rod and looped it over the rod, then hung it over the archway from her sunroom to her kitchen.

Since Kay doesn't have a website or blog, I offered to post the photo here for everyone to see. Thanks for sharing, Kay!
