I've been working hard on a couple of commissions lately. This is one of them.
My sister in law asked me to make a wall hanging to celebrate a silver wedding anniversary for a cousin. I didn't have much time so decided to do a little applique and fancy quilting rather than something pieced.
I forgot to measure it but it turned out roughly 14" x 24",
I hand embroidered the lettering using stranded cottons (floss).
I made a little video of me doing the quilting. All was going well until my bobbin thread ran out. Here it is:
Ann and George love their hanging so that is always good to hear.
Here's a sneaky peek of the other custom order I'm working on. It is for 6 identical place mats
The fabrics are gorgeous - Chicken and Egg from the Henley Studio. Beautiful quality. I'll show you them in my next post..
Before I go, can I just say thank you if you voted for me in the Bloggers Quilt Festival and thank you if you left a comment - sorry that I didn't have time to reply to you all individually but I seem to be pushed more and more for time these days. I didn't win but it was a lot of fun and very inspiring to see all the beautiful work. You can see all the winners here.
Thanks for visiting.
