    Showing off my new wall hanging!

    This mini-quilt is 12" x 12". It is a design from Quilting Celebrations magazine, by Patrick Lose. The fabric is actually his line too (except the orange)- but I actually didn't know that when I bought it. It was only later that I realized the awesome bright fabric I bought was by the designer whose wall hangings I wished I was good enough to make.

    Well, I got some courage, and made this one! This is the second time I've ever tried satin stitch applique and it went a million times better than the first (outlining letters on a mug rug- I got the job done, but it wasn't pretty...). It is my third or fourth applique project, I'm really new to this.

    I definetly have more mini quilts in my future. I made this one in just an afternoon, and looking at it makes me SO happy!

    asking a quilter to mend is like asking picasso to paint your garage

    Cool Fantastic Wallhanging!

    It is so bright and cheerful! You did an excellent job on the applique. I really enjoy doing applique; have so much fun, most of the time I could care less what it looks like. LOL.
