Wall hanging by Barbara



Barbara is an inspiration!
Determined to use up stash and finish projects despite physical obstacles following a recent stroke followed by rehab, Barbara is not about to set her love of quilting aside. Previously Barbara did her own quilting on small projects like this one and only brought large quilts in to be longarmed. She is working to get back to where is she able to do that again. For now, she asked me to quilt this little guy as she was anxious to hang this bright and cheery wall hanging up on her kitchen wall. So small, I decided to quilt this one on the Juki.


 I enjoyed getting in some FMQ again at a sit down :0)
It's been quite awhile, kind of like visiting an old friend, it felt good!


This was a project Barbara followed from a magazine. She asked me to quilt it as it was pictured which I did except the background. Pictured was a simple open stipple which I replaced with some McTavishing, kept the stitching small in order to make the center with Barbara's hand applique pop. Mission accomplished and it was fun! 


Enjoy your weekend!
Tot Ziens, Jo
