I have a beautiful sunflower and backing in a green I'd like to use.
Do you have to use more than one of the floral fabric or would solids behind it work?

I've never seen directions for using only one print fabric. I think you would need at least two. You could try it with some different, scrap fabric to see if it would work. I think I would try to find a couple more panels.

Spring has sprung! I think you got it, too! Your decorative stitch on the binding and hanging loops added the perfect touch! Did you find the technique enjoyable and would you do it again?

It turned out beautifully. I guess Iím not familiar with the technique but will be doing a Google search on it. Love your wall hanging.

Default Hearts

I did this yrs ago with APPLIQUE hearts. Only used one fabric for heart and several layers of diff colored fabrics underneath...I'd only use one panel and then match colors in panel in solid for other layers...

Yes, I would use that technique on the binding again. I did two rows of decorative stitching on the binding before applying it to the quilt, so the decorative stitches are on the back as well. I used a fall panel as backing, so the hanging is reversible if I want to hang it the other way. The back is not chenille.

Thanks, everyone, so much for your lovely comments.

Hobbykat1955 ~ Thanks for showing your hearts and sharing that one panel would work. I'd like to see more samples of using just one panel. I wouldn't have thought applique would work either. Nice job.
