    I showed you this wallhanging as part of my post on "Sisters' Week" fall '08 but it is completed now and hanging in my new laundry room. The birdhouse roofs are done in prairie points and buttons hold them to the wallhanging.

    The shelf was a tolepainted shelf that was resplendent in dusty rose flowers and blue trim, so I sanded the flowers, painted it black and got our carpenter to drill holes in the sides so I could insert a removable dowel. I can change the wallhanging with the seasons, holiday, mood, etc! PLUS the shelf part gives me a place to display some related theme items... Still looking for where I packed the sunflower stuff!

    If I understand your question correctly, no I didn't make buttonholes. Just sewed the buttons through the completed hanging.

    The laundryroom was part of the living area makeover we did this winter. We skimmed a little off the kitchen (about 2 feet) so we could enlarge the laundry room and put in pantry cupboards for extra storage. It is bright and cheery has a door going out to the back patio where I hope to have a clothesline later this summer. I can't believe how much I enjoy doing the laundry now! LOL

    I ABSOLUTELY love it! I have the pattern, material ( I looked high and low for what I wanted), and buttons for this project. I plan to work on it this summer. Since I have only been quilting for a little over a year I wanted to wait until I was better because I really want this to turn out well! If it is just half as good as yours I will be proud :!: :) Birdhouses are my other "thing" I painted a wall mural in my kitchen of birdhouses. Maybe I can remember to take a pic and post!

    How cheery is that? No wonder you like doing the laundry! I bet the wallhanging makes you smile every time you look at it. So, any ideas for the autumn wallhanging?

    Mamagus, I really meant 'winter', not ' autumn'. I've been looking for ideas for a winter wallhanging,as all my 'must-do' projects SHOULD be finished by October.

    I have LOADS of Christmas wallhangings so I expect the winter one will be snowmen. Not sure of the design yet!

    Wow! This is so cute! I love the birdhouse border and I am smitten with buttons on quilts. I'll need to find this pattern. Which issue of what magazine is it in?
