Seams Like Home- Signs of Spring Wall Quilt
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Holiday, Cute, Whimsical
fabric, beads, thread, batting,
What was your inspiration?
I wanted to make a wallhanging for my granddaughter age 3. She loves rabbits and birds. I saw this pattern at a quilt show. It was different and challenging because I had little experience with thread painting. It was great fun!
What are you most proud of?
The rabbit looked so real when I finished. My granddaughter was so excited when she saw it on my design wall that she started telling her baby doll about it-pointing out the different elements on the quilt.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't be afraid to try thread painting. It is simply a zig-zag stitch done free-motion style. Practicing on sample fabric is a good idea. I also did not paper- piece a basket in every block of the background. I decided to do every other one. I quilted a basket design in the ones that I didn't paper-piece.
