    My Oriental Traditions Panel Wall Hanging

    I saw this done up at a LQS and I just had to do it. They just used the panel and quilted it with FMQ, some straight line quilting between the black "borders" and some bead work, so that's what I did. I put beads in the center of the flowers in bottom green rectangle as they did and stippled in the black around the moon, quilted with the flow of the waves and then quilted half circles in the moon. I used gold thread in the bottom portion of the wall hanging, to make that section pop. Thanks for looking!

    That is just beautiful! The addition of the beads & the gold thread you used just kick it up yet another notch. You should really be proud of this beauty!

    It is gorgeous! You did a fantastic job with the quilting. Was it difficult to work with the gold thread?

    Nope. I just used a looser tension on my thread and it really worked well. You can see spots of the gold on the back where the looser tension was drawn down, but that's ok with me.

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Brother you sure dressed up that panel! Gorgeous! I love your use of the gold thread and the style in which you quilted all the different areas. Thanks for sharing.

    Lol, oh no, I'm a "sister". DH is just modeling the panel for me. I was taking the picture so I needed someone to hold it for me.
