50th Anniversary Quilt

 This is the wallhanging I made for my parents 50th anniversary.  That was nine years ago!  The design grid I used  is a copy of the floor tile they have had in their kitchen for probably 30 years!  I used  bias tape and hand embroidery to duplicate the tile. It is handquilted.  It has been hanging in their dining room since so I think since next year is their 60th, I will make something new for them.  The photo transfer in the centre is getting a little faded. They love it and dont want to take it down but I am thinking maybe the "Christmas Farrago" may hang in that spot for a while! We will soon see.


  1. What a clever idea to copy a floor tile from their home. I love it!

  2. The wall hanging is beautiful and like Karen said - copying the tile is a great idea.♥
