Quilt With Us

Nobody said I could hang a picture straight...sorry...  Well, I finally finished my last block, the coneflower, right frame, lower left.  I ordered some canvas stretcher bar frames on amazon.com and wrapped the wall hangers over the frames and stapled them in place...Wouldn't you know it, my staple gun quit working halfway thru the second frame so I ended up using upholstery tacks.  Anyway, I backed the tops with batting and a muslin back then did some big stitch quilting with the same pearl cotton I used for the blanket stitch on the top, before I framed them. I didn't bind them yet, just left the edges raw thinking that if I change my mind I can take them off the stretcher bars, bind them and make the "normal" wall hangers.  Right now they hang in my powder room to add a bit of color. 

Working with wool has been fun.

Nice job, Debbie!  Finishing them with stretcher strips leaves you options - very clever.

As always, you do a great and these are no exception. Your powder room must get busy with guests who want to look at them. Just kidding. Hope you are feeling okay and was glad to see a post from you. Hugs to you.
