    Top is done ready to be quilted. This is about 25 by 30 wall hanging that I made. The flowers are the same fabric that I used in the basket quilt that I made last summer for my aunt. The small flowers are left over from that project plus a few larger ones that I made for this.

    Vicki, It's lovely. Those colorful flowers make me anxious for spring. My hyacinths are starting to peek through the soil. :D :D

    Thanks everyone. Its nice to have so many say such nice things about my wall hanging. Actually it was sooo easy. I have a REAL close relationship with a product called fine fuse. Just cut out my shapes and fuse the stuff to the back using a pressing sheet!
    I only wish that I had been in on the initial stock offering! It seems that my purchase alone surely must keep their company in the black :!: :D
    The grass was just free form shapes cut out with a rotary cutter. Although needle turn applique is gorgeous, I will have to save that method for when I retire and have more time.

    Aw shucks, ma'am, you're gonna make me blush :oops: :oops:
    Thanks everyone for such nice comments. I think this had to be one of the easiest projects! Of course, its not quilted yet, so my opinion of it could change :lol:

    That is awesome!!!! Way to go Vicki!!! That is something I would love to try... but not by machine... which dh thinks we wasted money on since I do not use it all the time. But someday I will try using the machine for other things than piecing. Really scared too.

    I just love your colors, etc on this wall hanging... Did you use a pattern?
