The door to wisdom swings
on hinges of common sense
My latest project is a wall hanging made from scraps of girly materials and calico. I have been itching to make two wall quilts, well they're more like banners really. A Girls Corner and a Boys corner, and a display of books that would go well for each gender.
The lettering is done using felt and I wanted the line of letters to be uneven...give it the kid look. I buttonholed the letters and found a leftover flower that I appliqued on and also buttonholed.
The finished work is about 4ft long x 2ft wide. The blocks are roughly 6inches in size and the colours seemed to match together. For the backing I used calico and all I have to do is stitch up the bottom where I pulled the work through.
