    I just finished (I think!) 4 wallhanging tops for my daughter. I'll thread paint and quilt them when I return to CT. The flower panels came from Keepsake - I couldn't resist when they were on sale. My daughter has a wall that needs color - and she asked me to make a quilt. The rest of the room is black and white - white furniture with a huge black and white photo on one wall. I'm sending these pictures to her, too. It will be her first inkling of what I'm doing.

    I WELCOME any suggestions. I've had many sleepless hours trying to decide what to do AFTER I did the HSTs on each flower panel. Then I added the outside borders - which I plan to machine quilt with the flower in each panel.

    I toyed with adding more HSTS on the outside edge, and making the current outside border a bit smaller. What do you think?

    Gorgeous! Did you paint the flowers or are they a panel of some sort?

    would you like another daughter? beautiful job and they are totally awesome. Your expertise is much greater than mine on making any changes to your beautiful wall hanging.

    Gorgeous flowers & I love your borders. Please post pictures after they are thread painted. Are you going to frame them - in black, of course, in keeping with your daughter's color scheme? - just joking.
    From your location ID, I presume you're a 'snowbird" - cannot wait until we can fly away in Winter too! LOL

    These are fantastic. Not usually a fan of panels, but these are wonderful. By 'Keepsake' I assume are refering to Keepsake Quilting? Hoping not as I don't find these panels on their site.

    Hi Mom! :mrgreen: :lol: (She's not really, I'm just trying to con her into sending them to me!:lol: )

    Those are beautiful and will go perfectly in your daughter's monochrome interior I'm thinking! I think the large border is a nice frame - how about some prairie points either within the border or inside the binding in multicolours to match the HSTs? Although just quilted and bound they will be stunning. Love that fabric, going to GOOGLE for it! :-D

    Those are gorgeous! I think I'd put a narrow corded border and then the binding.

    They are lovely. I've always wanted to try thread painting. Can't wait to see a picture after they are quilted and painted.
