    McKenna Ryan Wall Hanging

    I just love all McKenna ryan's patterns, but very hesitant to have a go....But feeling brave after buying this pattern more than 6 months ago.
    Am pleased with the outcome, seeing I only used fabrics that I had at home.
    I am hanging it with pride in my entry down stairs.
    Now have two more in mind as well.

    Beautiful job! I love MR's patterns as well. I have a couple of her patterns just waiting for me to get the nerve to start them.

    You've done a fabulous job on this Paula 153. I love McKenna Ryan's patterns too but am very hesitant about getting any. They are expensive aren't they. I love her Christmas Down Under and may save up for that for Christmas.
    This will look lovely hanging in the entry, well done.

    I bought the entire set of the "Home Tweet Home" as part of my Christmas....I have the first block done except for the applique" I don't hand applique" and am wondering if I can do the blocks justice with machine applique'. I have been doing machine applique' for years. so I'm not a newbie at this, but there are SO many tiny pieces, I'm afraid they will "overshadow" each other even with a very small satin stitch. I put it aside for now...haven't given up and will eventually do it, I'm sure. I just started another applique' group..."Affairs of the Heart"...and have 12 of the 36 blocks ironed/fused but not appliqued. More small pieces, but not like MR's.
    How did you applique' yours, or did you since you are using it as a wall hanging?
    Those who are piecemakers will sew seeds.

    Hugs,

    Beautiful job. MR patterns are on my bucket list. Was it hard to do? Were the instructions easy to follow?

    Lovely! Very Realistic! Looks like a real aquarium!

    I have one of her BOM that I'm going to start on shortly. From the ones I've seen at the quilt shows that were finished and from what I've read you do a straight stitch around the applique pieces, not a satin or button hole or any type of applique stitch. Because these are art quilts and not meant to be machine washed is the reason. I'm pretty sure I either read it on her web site or in my directions also.

    Drue I have done several MR's and I fuse allthe pieces down and then meander quilt all over with nylon (invisable) thread, since it will not be washed it holds everything down quite well.

    Great job. Your fabric choices are spot on. Love that ocean water fabric.

    That is gorgeous, I did one a couple years ago it is still waiting for final border. They are fun, just a lot of cutting.

    What a neat little quilt. She is a very versatile designer, isn't she? I have Storybook Farm and Back on the Farm patterns waiting for me to tackle. She has something for everyone.

    I love her patterns too. Your wall-hanging is great and goo for you to use only fabric on hand.
    Blessings!

    I've done a couple of MR quilts, and used iron-on applique. Then I went back and did a raw-edge stitch about a thread or two away from the edge. You can either change the thread to match, or use nylon "invisible" thread & very small stitches.It's tedious, but not hard. Good luck!

    Hi there, it is all raw edge machine applique, and then quilted over the top.
