Done and Gifted!

The quilted wallhanging I made for my son's apartment is finished!! I love how it turned out and I had fun making it.  He loves it too.  I wanted to use variegated thread but the day I had planned for quilting we had a big snowstorm and I couldnt get to the fabric store to buy the colour I needed so I just used what I had.  I used a gold on top and purple in bobbin (the backing fabric is purple with white circles).  I also did a decorative stitch around the centre portion.  I made a scrappy binding (love scrappy bindings!) Here's a pic of the blocks I started with and then cut in quarters and sewed two sets back together.  The finished size is 60" x 36"                        


  1. It's gorgeous! I love the colours you chose, and the binding is perfect. You do lovely work, Linda. I bet your son is pleased to have this artwork on his wall!

  2. It's lovely! I also love the scrappy binding - absolutely perfect for the quilt!
