    This is how I quilted the floral log cabin wall hangings. I free motioned the center flower, traced a butterfly onto quilting paper from a machine quilting pattern book for four corners, then stippled with a swirl or loop for the rest. Quilting is not my favorite part, but I was pleased with the results. All five of those projects are quilted now--but it doesn't show up as well on the others--busy backs. :wink:

    The other is a small wall hanging I created with dimensions given to me by my d-i-l for the "new" bathroom my son fixed up in their home. It was stitched in the ditch. A friend gave me a neat plan, but once I started, I decided to stick to sitd for the whole thing.

    I have bindings on all but one floral project, and three are sold. :thumbup:

    One wall hanging layered... so you can remember what it looked like.

    Love the Log Cabin colors, it almost looks like a water-color painting - what fabric did you use in it?

    Oh goodness... I have many many (over 90) florals to choose from--and each strip is decided on individually....and there are 15 different fabrics in each block. So, that's a question I just can't answer. :lol:

    this is the other--it's sold

    Thanks Karla, I thought they might be from a 'line' of fabric from a particular designer. Anyway IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

    Ahhh! You should be so pleased with yourself!! Looks really good. I'm going to give it a shot this week while the temperatures are in the upper 90's and I can stay in and sew.
