When is a quilt not a quilt? When it's a wall hanging! Yep, the 'quirky quilt' is now a 'quirky house' wall hanging.The saga of the quilt for daughter changed when I started to quilt and realised that it was not suitable to drap over chilly legs when snuggled up on the sofa. With the material that was used for the blocks and backing and the heavy quilting on top, it is quite stiff so not snuggly to put over your legs. (I did say she could still have it or I would make her another one, she opted for another one as she wants needs one for the winter drafts) Am I disappointed it didn't go quite to plan...heck no!
All the blocks were hand appliqued and some hand and machine embroidery. The quilting was just a meandering stiching with the feeddog down on the machine. I have incorporated lots of little hearts all around, so if I ever get bored I can sit and count them!
Now I need to sort out some 'proper' patchwork fabric for my daughters quilt.
