    Nautilus Wall Hanging

    Here's a few pics of my Nautilus wall hanging I made today. I've been working the drawing for awhile and decided to go ahead and quilt up "version 1.0" today. I'm in-process on a second one where the nautilus shell is appliqued on, but I haven't quilted that one yet. This is my own original design, about 18" x 24", FMQ'd on my Juki with shiny poly theads.(I'm having a bit of trouble with the attachments tonight, so lets see how it goes...)Hope you enjoy it!

    That is awesome Wendy! Have you seen Megan Best quilting, you'd love it. She does have a few books out. Check her out. I really need to take the time to sit and "try" to come up with something like this. Looks like lots of fun. I love your work.

    Very cool, and inspiring, although I believe it'll be a LONG time before I attempt anything like this!

    The nautilus is beautiful, and your quilting around it is so elegant!
    Bless, O Lord, the works of my hands....

    Wendy, your choice of thread color really makes the nautilus stand out. I don't think that appliqueing the nautilus is necessary. That being said, I will be anxious to see your next version Very nice, indeed!
