I never realized it before, but this was my first ‘free form’ quilt that I made years before my Winter quilt came to be.
On a summer visit to my Mom’s, my sister had an autumn display hanging on the door. What??? She couldn’t find anything summery to put on the door.
So, with absolutely no quilting supplies to work with (everything was at home in Toronto), I made this hanging out of a piece of fabric for the backing and the flowers are made out of felt. No pattern …. everything was just cut out free form and buttonhole stitched in place. The flowers were stuffed with batting and buttons were used for the flower centers.
Outside the entrance, is a small hosta garden that was put in during one of my visits. Don’t they look gorgeous all in bloom? I just thought this was an excellent spot for a shot .... the door looked kinda of boring. :o)
When the VON nurse visited that week, she wanted to know where the hanging came from as she had not seen anything like that in the stores. A lovely compliment.
Have a great day!
