Petal Vines

Well, here it is ..... DONE!  Doing the happy, happy dance.

The hanging was washed and blocked on a piece of sytrofoam to dry in front of the fireplace.
 Such a lovely wall hanging.
 This hanging will go so well with my other summer quilts.  Love, love, love it.
 I tried to get the look of the hand quilting on an angle.
 A closer shot of the hand quilting.
 A really close look of the hand quilting.
So, this hanging will be folded and tucked away for the spring/summer months that will be coming eventually.  Time to get the rest of the Xmas decor up to enjoy.

Wall Hanging details:
Hand quilted and hand appliqued.
Size: 47-1/4" x 54-1/4" (before quilting:  48" x 56")
Started:  May 2015
Top Finished:  June, 2017
Finished:  November 2017
Pattern Source:  inspired by a photo on this blog:   http://vickysfrosterleybazaar.blogspot.ca/2014/07/summer-leaf-on-cover.html.  I didn't have a copy of the magazine, but doodled my own version.

Have a great day!
