    My sister-in-law Vicki made this wall hanging for her home in Montana and I quilted it for her. Again I was lost on how to go about quilting it, I searched the Internet and when I went on a Quilt Shop Hop, I spotted a pattern that gave me this idea. Her work is raw-edge applique.

    I guess it might be a good idea to add the attachment? Ya Think? I don't multi-Task to well!!!! :oops:

    That's really cool! The quilting makes it look like the fish is swimming.

    That is one neat wall hanging, the fish are very realistic and look like they are swimming and jumping. Beautiful work the both of you.

    This is really nice. Did you quilt this using your regular sewing machine or did you use special tools to quilt with? I like your work. :lol:

    Hi Susan

    I quilted this using my extended bed Janome 6500, I've had it for about four years now and love it, I can quilt a queen sized quilt but really like doing wall hanging, table runner, baby blankets and small quilts. Just my size. I started out on a Bernina Quilters Edition machine and went to the Janome for that extra room. I didn't use any thing extra just started stitching and making circles and they kind of echo stitching on this one. I love making flowers and leaves too, and really enjoy trying new things. When I started quilting and looking a quilting magazine took on a whole new world for me I looked beyond the patterns and fabric and at the quiltings other do, even using some idea from long arm quilter.
