|This is pretty unbelievable, but my brother and his wife will celebrate 50 years of marriage this coming week.|
So I wanted to give them a gift that I had made. Above is the pattern I used to create a quilted wall hanging for them.
|This is how it all came together over the past month or so....|
|The pattern included several appliqués and some of them had several parts|
|I used a fusible web to adhere the appliqués to the fabric and to adhere all the parts of the appliqués to each other|
|Three little fishes|
|As you can see, each heron has six or seven parts, and the pond has a lilly pad and lilly,|
Even the frog has two parts.
|Finished top with quilt batting and backing fabric|
|I had the piece quilted on a long arm machine by Laurie Gerse, then I did the finish binding of the edges|
It is in the mail and on its way to Kitty Hawk.
Happy Anniversary, Brian and Lynne!!
