Before I had my knee surgery, I knew that I would not be able to get into my sewing room for a while, so I pieced a little wall quilt with some hand embroidered words, and pinned the sandwich, so I could hand quilt it in the Big Stitch style while recuperating downstairs.
It’s a very old pattern from Nancy Halvorsen – Art to Heart.
Her version on the pattern is made out of all soft earth tones… mostly homespuns.
Of course, I don’t own a single homespun fabric in my whole stash… not my style.
So, I made mine out of pretty bright batiks!!
I added some fun button embellishments.
I like the way it turned out.
It’s already hanging upstairs on the wall in the landing! What fun!
And hand quilting it was waaaaay out of my box, so to speak!!
You know my motto- if it can done by machine, it will be!!
And it gave me something to do with my hands while stuck downstairs in my recliner!!
And I can blame any uneven stitches on pain meds, right??? LOL!!
Yogi wants to know what you are sewing on these hot long days of summer!!
