    My 'Garden Delights' Wallhanging

    Hi there,
    I just finished this wallhanging in memory of my mum- she loved gardening and our house was always full of flowers during the summer months. As I got older I really wanted to make something in her memory to hang on our wall.
    The middle block was done on my embroidery machine. the wallhanging is a meter square. Thanks everyone!

    WOW! This is beautiful. I love the way you've turned those star blocks into flowers. Great embroidery as well. My Mom also loves flowers, though she can't garden much anymore at age 91.

    Thanks so much- I had thought about doing this since I started quilting 18 months ago..my mum was a lovley lady and really into all things sewing. She passed away when I was 18 and I am so pleased that we can have this on our wall and every time I look at it I will think of her. It has meant so much to me to make this memory of her! Thankyou so much for you kind comments and support
