Wall Hangings

I made these quilt wall hangings about two years ago.
The pattern is "Two Peas in a Pod" by Sweet Shoppe.

I made this one for my grand daughter Maisie.

Rebecca chose the fabric for this quilt. I was with her at Material Girls, she kept loading up her husband's arms with bolts of fabric!   I love the aquas and pinks with touches of orange. 
 The flower stems are made of rick rack.
I put Roxanne's glue baste glue under the rick rack and make sure it is positioned correctly.  Then I stitched each rick and each rack (lol!) with a needle and thread to secure it.
I appliqued the flowers with fusible web and a little machine blanket stitch.  It worked really well!  Do you notice the scallop border on the top?  I did needle turn that by hand.  

I love pinwheels!

This is the wall hanging I made for my grand daughter Neo.
I had a lot of fun choosing the colors myself.  I wanted it to look "sunshiny"!

Lots of yellow, orange and pink with touches of aqua.
I kept imagining Neo lying in her crib, looking at the quilt while she was waiting for her Mom or Dad to get her up.  What would she be thinking while she looked at the quilt........what colors would inspire her......what colors would make her happy?  It's funny what you think while you sew.....

I backed the quilt with my favorite....."Sew Cherry".

Did you notice that I snuck in some pink and aqua rick rack for the flower stems?  My favorite way of attaching a quilt to the quilt rod, is to gently safety pin some ribbon to the back of the quilt.  I tie the ribbon in pretty bows and the quilt is hung.  It is really easy to just remove the safety pins and you can put the quilt on a table, behind the couch or on a bed.

This is a quilt I could make over and over again.
My friend Cindy Paulson, machine quilted both quilts.  She always does a fabulous job!
