    I have recently just gotten back into hand-quilting, and loving every minute of it. I thought I'd start small, so I picked a 17" x 17" wholecloth wallhanging which I think I will be using as a table topper. I'm looking forward to starting my queen-sized wholecloth, and figured I'd share my tiny project for those who like looking at pictures. :mrgreen: After following directions to a "T", I am still having problems removing the pre-printing on the pattern, and have a call into the company to see if they have any suggestions. I used a rainbow varigated thread for the center & cross hatching, yellow for the pedals, and blue for the border. Kinda hard to see with the printing still on there.

    I love this design, it is diffrent than most I see, less "swirly" could you tell me what company it was from? I have always wanted to do one of these but most were too fancy for my taste.

    Thanks everybody! Really wish you could see the quilting better. :(

    I got it from The Stencil Company, and they are many different colors of wholecloth to choose from with the same pattern. It's called a "mini wholecloth" and here's the link:

    It's hand quilted (thanks for asking!) and I would highly suggest a smaller project like this one for anyone who may be interested in giving hand quilting a try. Ask any HQ out there, and they'll tell you how relaxing it is.

    I am the only one in my fam that quilts (6 girls!) so they keep me busy making gifts. All of them say it it is way to much work, but they love getting them!
    Love your wall hanging, I agree it is very relaxing.
