    My brother lives in Arizona and I wanted to make him a wall hanging that would fit in with his decorating style. What I came up with was inspired by rusted metal wall art I saw some time ago. I used both raw and turned edge applique along with a variation of Ricky Tims convergence quilts for the backround. Free motion work finished it off.

    VERY nice!! You should ask your brother if you could borrow it to enter into a few shows.

    I don't know about the rest of you, but when I first saw it I heard the whistle music from "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly".

    I want that hanging in my home.

    Wowza! What a great use of the convergence background, and your image is stunning!
    I love, love, LOVE seeing original work.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I heard it too:) LOL (my DH and I have a private joke about that movie and the music....I hated it)

    I'm not big on SW but this wall hanging is incredible. Really nice and prize winning in my book.

    That is just totally excellent!! He should be thrilled and I agree that you should put it into a show. Then you can give it to him with a blue ribbon!
