Artwork Mounted

Even though I did all of the work, this photo doesn't look much different than the last one I showed of it.   But the stitch work piece is now properly mounted and hanging on my wall.
The color is not as true as it was in the previous outdoor shot. 

I mounted the quilted piece on a piece of block foamcore board that I already had on hand. 
I was planning to buy canvas stretcher bars to make the "frame" that sits behind it to 
raise if away from the wall.  However, that store is closed due to the quarantine order. 
So I chose an older painting that I had done that I really didn't like - and was planning to
 paint over anyway.  I painted the edges black to match the foam core and attached
the foamcore and quilt to that.  It has a hanging wire so that it hangs on the wall 
just like a painting. I know I will enjoy looking at it as long as I have it. Of course, 
if anyone offers me an appropriate price, I will certainly sell it. 

Until Next Time,

It is a wonderful piece. It makes me miss my hand stitching days. I'm glad you solved the hanging problem and have it up where you can enjoy it.

Perfect job on creating a way to hang this piece. I would love looking at it too as I am sure you will.
