Sometime ago Ackfeld Manufacturing sent me this awesome sewing machine shaped quilt holder. It’s perfect for the Quilt Square Quilt Along blocks! The only thing I didn’t like is that it was brown. The wall I wanted to hang it on was a deep burgundy color and the hanger just didn’t show up on the wall.
A cheap can of spray paint and a few minutes later I had this…
A little drying time and two screws and I had this…
I love it! I like old Singer sewing machines, and the black just seemed to work better with the wall color too! All in all a win-win!
Stop back later today and I’ll announce the winners of the Quilt Square Quilt Along.

Yes, it is a win-win. Looks great
Love it, it works perfect!
Looks wonderful! I’m surprised you didn’t need a special metal paint. Glad is worked! ~Jeanne
Looks better black. And I love your small quilt hanging with it.
Sweet! I love the quick style changes that a little inexpensive spray paint can make! Looks great!
OHHHHH that ‘s nice!
I love this!!! I went onto their site but could not find it!!!! Do you know if it can be purchased and if so how do I locate it!!!
Connie, I went to the Ackfeld link above and clicked on 12″ craft holders. The sewing machine is on pg. 9. Good luck!
