Wall Hanging for Stacey

This is the wall hanging I outlined stitched with my good Pfaff Quilt Expressions 4.0. I haven't had much experience stippling, so this panel was a perfect study for me.

Gordon made the quilt hanger -- it took us forever to find the right knobs. I painted it black to match some of the furniture in my daughter Stacey's home, and then finished it with a gloss sealant.

The parts I added:

  • The dark brown borders. (I thought black would be too dark)
  • Coordinating rust/cream stripped fabric from the inner border for the backing.
The BEST part was giving my middle daughter something both Gordon and I had made. We had a ball working together on this project.
