My Mother's Colors: Quilted Wall Hanging
These ARE my mother's colors, at the moment. She had a beautiful water color painting above the master bed, but it has faded in the light. When she saw this quilt kit made up at a local quilt shop, she bought it and said, "Donna can make that."
I was happy to oblige. It sewed up very quickly. Being a kit, the fabric was cut into manageable pieces and only needed trimming to size. There are four large blocks, a border and binding.
And, I LOVED working with the colors. I bought some gold thread, and borrowed my friend's stencil to do the star in the middle of the gold/purple squares. Everything was free motion quilted, except for the border, where I used the walking foot and decided to do a wavy pattern with the zig zag stretch stitch on my basic Janome sewing machine.
Now, to fit it in my carry on luggage for my trip to Ontario!
