Quilted Wallhanging


























Close-up of Snowman wallhanging.
Isn't he the cutest? 

I purchased a quilt panel while visiting
Mom in Florida and she gave me more
fabulous sewing advice.  I like to do
free motion quilting and Mom is more
of a "traditional" quilter, but she's probably
forgotten more about sewing than I will
EVER know! 





















Bunny close-up.  The sweet details are what caught my
attention and I knew I could go wild with free-motion
quilting.



























Happy little red bird.














Here is the finished wallhanging.
I am so pleased with how it came out,
thanks to Mom, it has a finished binding,
not pinked edges.  LOL!!!




Thanks for the fabric & excellent advice Mom!  I think
I've finally overcome my sewing machine phobia.  

I know my sewing is not perfect, but I embrace that.
Learning and growing requires a starting place, right?  

Do you sew?  Are you making any new holiday decorations?

Making Christmas cookies with the kids later this weekend...
FUN, FUN, YUM!!!

  1. You did great for a sewing phobic. I am proud of you for overcoming that fear. You do the stuff I cannot do and I do the stuff you, well I won't say cannot do because you may do some of it yet, and between us we do it all. Love yah!!!Mom

  2. Donna, was a lovely thing to do and such a nice job you did. I look forward to making some time in the future to sew again, I use to as a kid/teenage. With you and mom Dionne staying busy with sewing, you're both inspiring me to try again. :)
