    St. Mark's Wall Hanging

    St Mark’s Wall Hanging


    I am fascinated with illusions in quilts, so when I first saw this design, I knew that I wanted to make one for myself. The St. Mark’s wall hanging, one of the quilts from Nora McMeeking’s Bella Bella Quilts: Stunning Designs from Italian Mosaics, is usually made with 3 or 4 different fabric; the rainbow of colors was my choice. I started this wall hanging in the spring of 2011, using the traditional paper piecing method. When I was about one third of the through the medallion wedges I saw a tutorial on “paperless piecing” and switch methods. The quilt was a lot of work, but the paperless piecing did make it a bit easier and I would recommend this method. I think this is one quilt that will stay at our house instead of being given away like most quilts I make!
    Blessings!

    Would you mind sharing where you got the pattern? I'd love to piece this for my sis.
    Sure, did I answer you already? I can not remember: here is the low down:

    Brenda, I thought I'd already replied, but I don't see it anywhere. So, sorry if I am repeating myself. Yes, it was hard to keep track of the pieces, what goes where. If you make one, you'll have to come up with a system that works for you. I highly recommend you buy the book and also the pattern pieces that are printed on freezer paper. They are sold separately. It took me 2 years from start to finish, but I did not work on it consistently. I work full time, have 8 grandkids, our mother-in-law lives with us and we care for her....I made lots of baby quilts, etc. for gifts during that same time. I exercise everyday... So I really can not say how long it took, but isn't it that way with most project? I rarely work on one thing from start to finish. Anyways, here is the info I submitted with my quilt:

    No problem, I know when there are multiple pages, it takes time to read through all the comments and questions. I have been guilty of asking a question, only to realize that the answer was there, if I'd just taken time to read through all of the pages. Hey, time is valuable! Less time on the computer = more time to quilt! As long as people don't mind my "cut and paste" answers. I am just thrilled that other people are interested and still amazed that I won 2nd place.

    Love it! Too cool!
    I know what I thought I was making when I started this quilt, but it has changed several times since then.

    I have to tell you that I wanted to put your quilt into my "quilt ideas" place on my computer when you posted it earlier. I should add that I'm seriously electronically challenged. I ended up with your quilt (not one of my own!!!) as my screen saver! Don't know how to get it off so I am forced to enjoy your lovely quilt frequently! It certainly deserved to win!
