A little bit more of show and tell from the vaults for you.
This is one of my designs, requested for Australian magazine ‘Homespun’. I was asked to design a small wall hanging, and this is what I came up with.
Some days the designs just flow really easily. This was an easy one both to design and make. I loved the flowers hanging over his head – they looked good to me.
No sooner had I designed this wall hanging the bee buttons became unavailable. That was life in the shop – trying to make designs different, but generic enough to be able to be substituted if the design took off. Companies are always discontinuing fabrics, buttons, colours – it sure made life interesting when we tried to make quilts.
I tended to follow a bit of a formula with my wall hangings – bit of applique, bit of stitchery, bit of sewing – all easy enough for a beginner.
I made a matching rabbit wall hanging too – I’ll try and dig it up so I can show you that as well.
Hope you had a quilting weekend!
