    And that's what inspired this wall hanging! I still need to sandwich, quilt and bind. I'm thinking of a deep purple batik for the binding. What do you think?

    Trying to decide how to quilt also. I was thinking of stitch in the ditch and some 1/4 inch from edges quilting. Thinking about stipling in the black areas (with black thread) but haven't made up my mind yet. Any suggestions?

    It is stunning! The quilting plan sounds perfect. (My mother also loved lilacs and passed away 16 mo. ago.)

    Oh, Wow!! That is right pretty. It looks like a picture, and a darker framing might make it pop!! I love it.

    Love your hanging. Hard to believe that lilacs should be blooming here in less than a month. Not sure they won't still have snow on the blooms.

    Lilacs are my all time favorite. They were always around when I was growing up, but now I live where they won't grow :cry: So thank you for sharing yours.
