Gecko Fabulous! - A Wall Hanging

When I was doing my quilt group's bag challenge - I knew that I wanted to do something else with the little geckos.  this is what I came up with........

Click on the photos for a close up view.

I machine stitched the leaves with just a line of stitching down the center - I wanted them to lift up at the edges.

This time I added a few beads to the back of the gecko.



The photograph below was taken under my sewing light - we have not seen sunshine for days, which is really frustrating when you want to take good shots.




I really like the postage stamp border on this piece -  it was simple, fun to do and easy to quilt.


So that is my finish for the week.
Linking up with  : 

Color Me Quilty in the hope I can win some gorgeous sparkly threads.

Wishing you all a great weekend.  See you all next time.
Rhianon.

I prepared this post last night and low and behold this morning we have brilliant sunshine - so here's a few extra shots.







What a difference the sun makes!
