    Wildflower Wallhanging

    I'm so proud of myself I'm about to break my arm. I didnt think I could! This is a Smith Street Design pattern. I fell in love with it at first glance and just had to have it. I knew it would be difficult for this 71 yr-old newbie, so I adjusted and didnt make all the 1 inch square sashings that were so attractive. I incorporated my machine embroidery, applique, and quilting, and thought it turned out nice. I have a special wall I needed to hide some "ugly" and this will do quite well.

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Absolutely beautiful quilt! You did a wonderful job and you are definitely a "born natural" at quilt making.
