I finally got a little time to quilt this weekend and I had a wonderful time working on this wall hanging: Only the center panel has been quilted but what is exciting me about this is that I used unconventional textiles for the applique shapes and it creates an incredible 3-D texture once it’s been quilted. I’m really struggling to get a photo that shows this: All of the appliques are either woven wool fabrics, wool felts, rayon felts, bamboo felts, cotton velvets, or cotton suedes. Once you quilt around the applique shapes w/invisible thread, they really pop out: I couldn’t resist messing around with a little ruler work as well…I’m blown away by how much punch just a little bit of ruler work can add to the design! I’ll get some other pictures up later, but it’s pretty cool to see this in real life! Also, in case you didn’t know, Craftsy is having a big sale this weekend with classes at $19.99!
