Woodn't It Be Loverly?...and Quilters are Cutting Edge!

Yes, I know I spelled that wrong but it's because there's something new and wooden at my house. Hubby made my something from his woodworking magazines this week.
It's a wall mounted quilt rack with swinging arms. I'm so excited! We haven't mounted it on a wall yet cause I can't make up my mind where to put it. It ended up being larger than I thought it would be so it's taken some thought on where it will fit best. It would be totally perfect in the corner of my bedroom because there's enough wall on both sides to push arms to either side, but we were also looking at creating something for there to hold extra bedroom junk. Anyway, here's what it looks like in the plan picture so you can see what it's supposed to look like with quilts on it.
I think it's funny that they had a corner but didn't use it that way. As soon as I get mine mounted I will take some pictures with my quilts on it to show off hubby's great work!

As far as the cutting edge quilters go, I was flipping through my recent Real Simple magazine and noticed this.
Chevrons? Uh, yuh! Hello? Are there not chevrons all over the quilty net right now? Yup, quilters are with it, happening, the bomb diggity! Well, we know what looks good, anyway!!
