It's a wall hanging to hang above their bed. Their colour scheme is all browns and blues and I borrowed a pillow sham in order to choose my colours. It's done with raw edged applique with a zig zag stitch.
My friend Wilma has loaned me a tubular quilting frame that I would like to use when quilting this. So I have another question for you. Does the quilt have to be snapped in on all 4 sides.? If so can I attach extra fabric to the backing to do that?
Two weeks ago I shared a picture of my hand quilting sampler. Here it is all finished.
The stitching is fairly inconsistent but I'm happy to say that the best stitches are the latest ones. So I guess I've picked up something over the years. You can see where I carried the thread under the surface between the two circles so that is something I would be careful of in a project but I'm not concerned with the sample. I really enjoyed working on this and I can see how it could become addictive. Thanks for all your advice two weeks ago and for your inspiration every Sunday. I feel confident that I can do a reasonable job on the wall hanging.
Before taking the machine to the shop, I also managed to sew the binding on to this quilt. So I'll be working on hand stitching the binding down as well. Note my beginner free motion stitches. I've mostly done straight stitching up till now. I'm working on improving my free motion quilting and my hand quilting at the same time!
