This was my next dilemma. My 50 year old state of the art house had an intercom system. When we replastered the bathroom, my DH asked if I wanted to keep the speaker. At the time, I still used it occasionally so I said we should leave it. Fast forward 5 years, we never use it. I removed it when I was painting the bathroom. My husband asked me what we should do with the hole, and I said not to worry about it. I had an idea. (sorry, I don't know why blogger turned my photo) I measured the hole and I set to work.
It is all quilted and the binding is ready for hand stitching. It will look lovely
This quilt is to hang in my dining room to help control the noise of my children who can't take turns talking. When they were younger, we had to have a talk stick. The kids were only allowed to talk if they held the stick. At this age, they would probably just whack each other with the stick.
I have been trying to pick the perfect binding color. I had tried at least 10 colors from my stash, but none of them seemed to fit. Today when I hung the quilt, it spoke to me. I have the binding attached to this quilt as well, so I have plenty of hand stitching to do.
