    Memories of My Father

    I recently took an online course with Annette Kennedy on Craftsy. This is my finished project.
    My Dad always had Calla Lilies in our garden, so that is how I named it. I was intimidated by the stitching, so it sat for a long time before I finished. It was in our Guild Show this weekend and now it is on my wall in my living room.
    Thanks for looking!

    All I can say is wow...very nice..
    Besides my family, my pets are the most important things to me. I have had birds, a dog or cats since I was about 8 years old. The cruelest thing you can do to me is take my animals away.

    Those are actually tiny bits of fabric cut from a lighter green.

    This is exquisite in design and execution. I can see why you waited to quilt it, I too would want to make sure my skills for quilting were up to par for this beautiful piece. You did a wonderful job and I am glad you finally completed it and shared it with us. Is it fabric painted? Is that how you got the remarkable shading?

    I love growing calla lilies, the white ones. I am sure your gorgeous wall hanging will remind you often of your Dad.
