    Welcome Home

    I worked on this wall hanging for my front door this weekend, and finished off the binding... it doesn't show in the picture but it is the same fabric as the red lettering. I posted in the virtual quilt along as I went. The pattern is Welcome Home by Shauna Case. Name:  Welcome Home 2018002_edited (Small).JPG

Size:  27.5 KB It is approx. 12 x 26 " .. I fused the pieces down then did the double blanket stitch around most of the pieces with rayon thread, but also some satin stitching right through the whole sandwich, so that it was quilted as I attached the pieces.... I did add a few machine quilted lines...and a couple hand quilted snowflakes to finish it off.

    The background fabric with the snowflakes is so festive. It really shows off your cute penguin. I like it "snow" much.

Size:  26.7 KB Well no wonder the binding didn't show in the original post, it was the wrong picture! This should be the full picture with the quilting in it.

    thimblebug6000 -- what is a double blanket stitch? My sewing machine can stitch a blanket stitch and I'm wondering about a double blanket stitch. Is it done by hand or by machine. I love your wall hanging.

    I will put a link to one of my other posts here, as I showed what stitch on my machine it was, hope that works for you. https://www.quiltingboard.com/pictur...ml#post8015423

    thimblebug6000 -- I own the EPIC and think the stitch is on my machine. Thank you for the information. I like the stitch.

    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
