LOL! No, it’s not another quilt top, it’s just a little wallhanging! Back in September Coleen Merte came to our guild to speak and do a workshop. You may have remembered seeing an appliqué kit I picked up from her vending table. I took the kit to Colorado with me and spent a day attaching the pieces and sewing with a blanket stitch around the edges.
Once I got back home I added green yarn to the berries for stems and then it sat while I ran around and did other things.
But finally, it was time to finish something, so I grabbed the piece and layered it with a back made with the leftover orange fabric I used for Orange You Green. Quilted it with a cross-hatch and then FMQ’d around the appliqués. Before I knew it, it was time to pick a binding fabric.
I auditioned a bunch of oranges, but they weren’t pink enough. I pulled out some greens and found a good match, but still wished I had something in that petal color. How I longed to find a perfect salmon! But it was not to be, so I went with the green, which is normally my go to color anyway.
So, what do you think? Does it stir your envy? LOL!
