Several of my wall hangings are on my walls. The are rotated from time to time so that I can have a new look in the house. Some are there forever because I enjoy them or they bring memories .
My welcome wall hanging is by my front door. It is the only pattern that I repeated as it make a great gift. I appliqued the pineapple and ribbons before I had an applique class with Nancy Pearson. The later welcome wall hangings were much better, but we do get better with practice and knowing the right techniques.
My granddaughter gave me the lovely depression ware wind chime. My kitchen walls are green and it didn’t show it’s beauty. I made a wall hanging to go behind it. Silver Angelina fibers are stipple quilted on the border to bring out the silver in the glass piece.
I found the pattern for the wire fox terrier at a quilt show. The body of the dog was fussy cut from fabric that had several different dogs. I still have that fabric but it has holes. Maybe I will need more fur for another piece sometime. The hair is placed going the right way so the dog looks real. I machine quilted around the dog and then quilted the background from the back. The backing fabric had a wavy pattern and I machine quilted the waves up to the stitching around the dog. When shopping for new fabric, I often look for fabric that can be quilted upside down.
Have a great and happy quilting.
