This is a quilted wall hanging I made for a friend featuring the hand prints of her three nephews. She was given the hand prints as a gift from her brother's family and asked me to make it into something for her wall, giving me complete creative freedom. It was rather daunting at first, leaving me to think about it for a long time, but I had SO much fun with it once I got started.





I used Pink Chalk Studio's Wavy Seams Tutorial to create all the fantastic curves. The tutorial turned out to be super easy and the results were fantastic. I love this method and can't wait to try it again on future projects.

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Sorry about the link - I fixed it and it now goes to the tutorial and not my Flickr page.

The hands were done right onto Muslin.  I did not do it myself, so I can't give any more information about the technique.  Sorry.

Very nice. I really like the color combinations you used. Do you remember the approximate size of the finished wall hanging? Just trying to get an idea of how big it was.
