I made this wall hanging quilt a couple of years ago and recently entered it into our local Arts and Crafts show and please to say that Kandy was awarded 2nd prize I thought I could just edit my item on this page but somehow I lost the whole thing. Obviously I'm better at quilting that technology.
This pattern was done as a tutorial on Donna Jordans’ website. It is a Halloween Table Square Pattern measuring 54 by 54. I thought it would make a nice wall hanging for my porch. I made the pattern. Got it all quilted and went to bind it and notice I had two pieces flipped. Well, I bound it and hung it anyway. I figured as people drive by the house, they won’t be there long enough find the mistake.
This was a unfished project found in the cabinets of my quilting group. The squares cut and sashing's sewn. I just put it all together. I had some checkerboard material in black and white left from another project at home I used for the back. I sent it to Missouri Star for long arm quilting by their experts. Then I added red flange binding with the checkerboard material being the ribbing part. I added a sleeve to hang but also could be used on a table.
Sometime back I went to a estate sale where the primary items were quilting and sewing supplies. There was so much that the estate people I believe were overwhelmed at liquefying everything. I think the lady was a sort of hoarder. However I have much stuff of mine own so best not toss out that adjective she just loved to sew like all of us. I purchased a huge box for $4.00 with tons of projects of which I am working though. Also I purchased a bolt of fabric for $5.00 that I have used on the back of this World Map wall hanging and enough for other items. I purchased a wood grain print fabric to frame this wall hanging . I sent it to Missouri Star for long arm quilting. They are the experts after all.. I chose a design as close to waves as I could find to make the ocean look realistic . It will be in the church fall sale this year. I have a sleeve on the back for it to hang.
I signed up to take a mini quilt class and had purchased batiks. but I did not have time to get them washed and pressed, These are the batiks I had chosen to use for the class. This one was more difficult, primarily because I arbitrarily changed my 1/4" seams and messed up the spacing, so I punted and tried to pull it off. I think I will do this again, but swap the blue for the purple. (This piece is approximately 14.5" x 14.5".)
I am trying very hard to get my supplies down to a more workable size. I did finish this Wall hanging of the Psalm 23. I put on a brown border to frame it . Then sent it off to Missouri Star for longarm quilting. The back is also lovely of left over cloud material I once used in a art quilt. I did flange binding to set it off.
A fun applique pattern that I came across in a magazine & had such fun making. It resonates with me as I grew up on a farm with so many of the pictures being a part of my life. As the saying goes "ya can take the girl out of the farm, but ya can't take the farm out of the girl." This is me to a tee!!
Here is another wall hanging of USA map. Like the World Map I posted a few days ago it also large enough to fill a wall and either could be a twin bed covering if person so desired to use it this way. I have sleeve on back to hang however. It was part of my estate sale find $4.00 box. Quilted by Missouri Star a pattern I felt looked like ocean waves and same blue butterfly material on the back. Framed in wood grain pattern material
I signed up to take a mini quilt class and had purchased batiks. Unfortunately, by the time I got home with them, I did not have enough time to get them washed and pressed, so I used these, which were left over from a previous project. Anyway, I was pleased with the way this turned out. To be quite frank, I expected more of a "mini" than this, but I learned the concepts. (This piece is approximately 14" x 14".)
