This is just a pretty picture of some of my online shopping scores from cyber Monday. It’s from Connecting Threads, part of their quilters candy fabric. I made something very rainbowy from it already and will post about it as soon as it’s finished.
I made this wall hanging from my rainbow stack of fat quarters I ordered from Connecting Threads. I also received the first 6 issues of Modern Quilts Illustrated by Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr for Christmas and fell in love with issue #3 and decided to make every single thing in the magazine from cover to cover.
I started to quilt the recommended swirls in the bottom left corner and just decided my skill level wasn’t up to par. I knew I’d end up just hating looking at it so I picked the stitches out and decided to go with something very basic. I followed the curve in the dark grey and did a simple two lines of stitching in the grey between the color segments.
This is my first wall hanging quilt and I had no idea how to hang it, but I figured it out and made two sleeves, attached them to the back making sure there was a gap in the middle between them and put a dowel through the sleeves. You’re not supposed to be able to see the dowel, but it’s hanging out of the end on the picture below (oops). I basted this wall hanging on my carpet and am not happy with how wrinkley it turned out…lesson learned! I won’t be basting anything no matter how small it is on carpet again 🙂
I can’t wait to make more mini quilt wall hangings! I’m also super excited to finish a few more things from issue #3 🙂
