WALL HANGING FINISHED!

I just finished my hand pieced and hand quilted wall hanging. It isn't exactly hanging, though because it is too long to hang above the fireplace, so I just draped over the picture that had been displayed there. I really like the way it looks.
This is the whole wall hanging.
These are a couple sample blocks of the Mansfield Park quilt that I am going to make for my guest bed. It is designed by Karen Montgomery and I bought the pattern about a year ago at a quilt show. I'm using reproduction fabrics for the baskets (so what else is new?).
In between the quilting, we're getting our camper ready. We have had to get some adjustments made to our truck and it all takes time. I'm hoping to hang my new curtains in it tomorrow!

  9. Your tumbler wall hanging does look perfect against the brick, doesn't it? I am truly impressed with your hand piecing and quilting! Gorgeous. Your starting blocks for Mansfield Park are charming--they will certainly be welcoming for your guest room. Beautiful work! Will we see pics of the finished curtains? Mary

  10. Your stuff looks great;) You do such nice work;)
    We got a bit of camping in. I wonder sometime's if we wouldn't like it better in an RV...to avoid the weather that seems to follow us on trips....or just tough it out for the experience. The debate goes on.
    Happy Quilting!!
