Island Flower Wall Hanging
My Island Flower wall hanging is my first project as an ambassador for Island Batik. Have I told you how much I love working with batiks! This collection of batiks would be perfect for a Christmas project but this wall hanging could be used anytime.
I had fun working with this beautiful group of batiks that I received from Island Batik called Berry Christmas.
If you missed my post about it you can read it here.
Then I cut some more fabric into 2 1/2 strips and sub-cut to squares for the borders.
Of course I used my vintage 15-91 Singer sewing machine to do all my piecing and quilting. I always like showing a picture of the free motion quilting before it is all done.
Here it is with the quilting all done in the center and also on the red and green blocks.
Here is a closeup of the stitching on the leaves.
Since this is a wall hanging I cut 6 inch squares of muslin and folded them on the diagonal before attaching to the top corners. Now I can add a small dowel to hang this up. I did the raw edge applique before I added the back.
I made a little label and I have to laugh as the information on it is kind of mixed up…..but it is a label! Afterwards I realized…..I could have written the info on one of the corners.
This wall hanging is 20″ x 28″.
I also gave away a bundle of Berry Christmas when I visited the Friendship Guild in Elizabeth, IL last week. I still have a little bit of the batiks left for another small project.
Update: I used the leftovers for a couple fun projects!
