    Well girls this is the third and last ime I am re-working this wallhanging. It has been in a drawer for eighteen years after finishing the embroidery. I drew it from a picture I saw once.
    I am going to quilt it this week and call it finished.
    So... What do you think? You like?

    Check out the date 1992! It is 31" wide and 33 1/2 " tall.

    Best view I could get of it...

    Awesome job! You must feel so proud of yourself. After 18 years and you are finishing!!!!!!!! Great job.

    My New Years resolution this year is for 2011 I can not start on a new project until I have finished all of my WIP. I don't believe that I can finish all of them in 2011 but at least I hope to make a big dent. The only exception will be if I need to make a wedding quilt or a baby quilt. I am hoping that I will have to make a baby quilt :-) (fingers crossed)

    Thanks,

    Really great-however I have had a piece of redwork in my closet since I started quilting (9 years or so) and I don't understand what to do with it??? Do you use red thread over the red lines or what??? My piece is a dresser scarf and I would love to finish it if I only knew how!! Post a pic when you finish it!

    Now you have a beautiful one-of-a-kind wallhanging!! Aren't you proud. I,too, have many unfinished projects and that is also one of my goals to finish as many as I can in 2011. But I am not going to say I won't start a new one because I see too many pictures on here of things I want to try my hand at!!

    You should use red embroidery floss or you can use a variety . I personally like the redwork to be in reds.

    I have never bought a kit to do the redwork. But, I am thinking you need to buy some red embroidery thread and just follow the lines with an outline stitch to finish your block.

    Kitsa ... You sound like me! I know exactly what you mean.

    Candlequilter ... Your funny girl, yup only eighteen years. LOL! But, I never was happy with it until now and didn't want the finished quilt to be ugly. Not after all that hand work. I am glad I waited to find these fabrics from my stash.

    I spent last year doing a finish on my projects. It ran into this year and I am thinking maybe 2011 too. I have sneaked in making a couple tops here and there when I got tired. But, my pile is dwindling down to a fraction of what I had. What was I thinking?

    Thanks to all who are enjoying the santa wallhanging. I think I have my quilting figured out. That is why I set it like this.

    :) :) Greetings all!
