Another UFO finished!

In November 2006 (I think that is the correct date :-), I attended an applique workshop taught by Cynthia Tomaszewski, through the London Friendship Quilt Guild. Cynthia was a delightful teacher and made the class so much fun! We learned freezer paper applique and fusible with a blanket or fancy stitch. This is her sample of the wallhanging that we made:

Here is a leaf shape that I practised on:

The fusible with blanket stitch flower:

The leaves were appliqued with needle turn around freezer paper shapes:

Center appliqued and borders on:

The completed handquilted wallhanging (finally!). I sewed buttons in the centers of the flowers.

Wow, it feels good to get this little wallhanging finished! It just kept getting shoved to the bottom of the pile and delayed in our two moves. Now to find a spot to hang it up!

I love the fabric colors and prints. Such a cheerful wall hanging.

That's really lovely. And it's always so satisfying to finish something that has been sitting around for a long time!

Happy quilting,

Thanks ladies!! It was a fun project to work on. One of the delays was caused by the border fabric. I had chosen the colours from that print and then couldn't decide if the border worked for it..if it was too busy. finally I just put it on!! LOL The Dear Jane quilt motto is: "Finished is better than perfect". I sometimes agonize too long over decisions!
