Autumn Wall Hanging Finished

I finished quilting and binding this little wall hanging.


It is 16" x 20" (they all are in the "Fat Quarter Quilting" book). I used cotton batting. It is quilted in Invisafil thread, except for the beige background, it is quilted in YLI silk thread (I didn't have the right colour in Invisafil).

centimeters

I free motion quilted little circles for the background (a pattern I have been wanting to try out). It took a long time to do this little quilt - I don't know if I would want to do it on a bigger quilt. They were easy to do because the circles are so small.


I used the walking foot to quilt around all the applique and leaves, then free motion quilted details in. All on my home sewing machine.


In case you are wondering about all the descriptions for every project - it is part of the "Process Pledge".

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

Very nice - and a really good quilting job. I do appreciate the extra descriptions - it is very helpful to know exactly how people accomplish things. I had seen the process pledge button, but didn't have any idea what it was for - it looked a little strange to me. I will look into it some more. Thanks.
