    A woman after my own heart, embellish those "mistakes". Absolutely beautiful.

    Thanks girls! I have another one planned where the strips are arranged to form a heart and a third to make a spider's web. And I'm trying to figure out a way to NOT have to hand sew the strips on the back - have ideas, will post if it works! ;) :D

    Kathryn, I was thinking that you could sew the strips on the back with a cute fancy stitch on your machine then I remembered...you are doing this QAYG aren't you? Is so...then I dunno.....

    Yup - I got some of that seam sticking stuff - Wundaweb in the UK. I'm going to try attaching bias strips to the back a shade wider than the sashing on the front then SITD round the sashing to catch the edges down? Will it work? Dunno! I saw a version where the strips on the back were machined down which showed a double line of stitches on the sashing on the front but I didn't like the look of that. Keep ya posted! :-D

    I love batiks and your wall hanging looks stunning. Love the idea of hanging corners on the back.

    I have a king size quilt for DD coming up which I was thinking I would need to do QAYG and your "no hand sewing" sounds very interesting to me. Keeping a close eye on this thread!!

    Wow! I agree with Elisabrat - this would look great on my wall! Well done!

    I made another one the no hand sew way and posted it here http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-36049-1.htm

    I'll do a tute in the next few days - I took progress pics in case it worked out so just need to do instructions to go with them. Be patient with me - I'm not very good at 'splainin'! :mrgreen:

    Your wall hanging is bright and beautiful. I really like the bright bali's and it souunds like you might too now that you've tried them.

    It's funny how something doesn't appeal to us and then something we see changes our minds. I've never been a fan of scrappy quilts, until I joined this board. Now I've seen quite a few here that are really pretty.

    Great job on your wall hanging. The hearts not to cover a mistake, but a "design opportunity") gives it great dimension.
