Another Quilty thing

I finished this wall hanging a couple of weeks ago. It is from Lori Holt's "Comforts of Home" She gives so much detail on her applique. I will definitely do more of her stuff. I personalized it just for us. The house number is ours and if you look closely at the tree there is a special carving. :o) I learned an applique trick from a sweet lady in our quilt group. Thank you, Julie for teaching us how to use glue and freezer paper to make the perfect applique!! I and stitched all of the pieces. The border is flying geese. I really like the versatility of placing flying geese in different ways to achieve and awesome border. The quilting is free motion. I should have used a same color thread. Oh well, shoulda, coulda. It's done and I am mostly satisfied with it..... This will hang above our bed in our bedroom.


  1. Susan, can you possibly change the color of the printing on your blog. It comes across so light I cannot read it. Thanks for checking it out

  2. Thanks, Kaye. I think it is fixed now. Let me know!
