Quilted Wall Hanging

Project Description

What was your inspiration? I was inspired to try the techniques from Cindy Needham's class instructions and my husband thought it was pretty enough to frame. Thanks, Cindy!!

What you will need

  • 100% cotton fabric
  • 2 layers of wool batting
  • muslin backing...polyester thread and plenty of seed beads ( I used fabric paint to add some color and also painted the seed beads to see them better.)

Q&A with JanSew82

Deb Cavanaugh asked:
Oh my Heavens, is that ever pretty. I bet with the two layers of wool, those feathers are popping out. Fabric paint, would not have suspected.
JanSew82 answered:
Yes...Cindy suggested the wool batting...the feathers show nicely...and the fabric paint...you feel like a kid again with a new coloring book! I'm glad you like it, thank you! Jan

JanSew82 answered:
An artist friend of mine suggested using a little darker color in the background to make the design pop. Glad I listened! Thank you! Jan
