This is a small wall hanging I put together as a present for my sister. The inspiration was the fabric she made in a printmaking class years ago. There are two fabrics in it that she made; one is the light green with frilly circles, and the other is the “striped” green fabric which has several colors of green in it.
The camera color was a bit off as the dark fabric you see is actually a dark gray fabric. I did some straight line (well, in my world as a free-hander it’s NEVER straight!) with some pebbled areas as well. A few triangles were left completely unquilted just to give it that “edge” it needed. I used a hi-loft polyester batting so it has some nice definition.
I love doing this type of work. Very free-form, very relaxing. No wrongs, just a lot of rights!
This has got to be one of the cutest wall hangings I’ve seen! Shirley D. made this and her applique work is just exquisite. I had a lot of fun putting in quilting here and there. And on the border I designed a fall leaf with swirl design and quilted it in red thread. Who doesn’t like red thread?
Fall is here. Happy quilting!
What a pretty sunflower wall hanging. Catherine S. made this quilt top and did a fine job of the applique. The pattern is called “Sunflowers” and is made by Bee Creative Studio, now called Nancy Murty Designs (should have been my company name, right?).
I used five colors of thread on this, and wanted to make the sunflowers pop out, so I quilted the background fairly tight. I hope Catherine enjoys it as much hanging on her wall as I did quilting it!
A very beautiful wall hanging made by Nancy F. The quilting had to match the detail work that Nancy did, and I think the design achieved the desired effect! It was fun to work on; who doesn’t like looking at pretty, bright fabrics when the days go gray?
