New Wallhanging

This month I made a wallhanging using more pieces of cross stitch that my Dad stitched.

The wallhanging is about 28"x35". 

I made this one for my parents.

I free motion quilted it with Essential Pro thread from Connecting Threads.
I used a layer of cotton and a layer of wool batting so the wallhanging would be flat but puffy. I just stitched in the ditch around the pieces of embroidery.
The cross stitch designs are from the book Repertoire des Motifs by Valerie Lejeune.

Photos from around-

No wind.
Fall colours.
A couple of Yellowlegs in the pond (right edge).
Wrong end of a skunk
We scared a fox.

All the best!♥︎

What a stunning piece! You are getting autumn - beautiful! And, I'm not so sure those are the types of critters you want hanging around, especially the south end of the one (heehee.)

That is not a side of a skunk you want to see in person!!

That quilt is stunning. The cross stitch is neat, and the quilting is stunning. Your parents must love it.
