    Some "Firsts" for me...

    I have made my first wall hanging...never have made anything with batiks..scraps my friend game me...first time to use basting spray for my appliques instead of heat and bond...loved that...first time to quilt anything on my regular sewing machine and first time to use blue painters tape for cross-hatching...but I think there is more of this in my future...thanks for looking..Name:  Fall Wall Hanging or Table topper 001.JPG

    That is so gorgeous! How do you use the painters tape? As a measure, etc?

    Those are beautiful. Such a good idea. They really look like the coloration of fall leaves.

    This is beautiful. The batiks give it a natural look.

    I wish my first quilt looked as gorgeous as yours!!!! For some reason I never thought of using the blue tape for machine quilting. I have used it lots of times for hand quilting though. Thanks for such a nice idea.

    Never heard of using blue painter's tape for cross hatching. Great idea. Love your wall hanging. Isn't it great when you can create something from somebody else's scraps! Thanks for sharing a wonderful wall hanging and a great tip.
