I made a mini quilt a year ago as part of the one for me, one for you swap, but wasn't sure where to hang it.  I decided on the large wall area that is visible from our dining table.  It's a large space, so I thought I should make 2 more to go with it, and a couple of weeks ago I finished them!

Trees and house are rough edge appliqued onto the background, buttons hand sewn, and flowers machine free-motion stitched.

It's hard to see, but I machine stitched with white thread for wispy clouds in the sky.





And all three together and up on the wall at last!


Thanks for looking!

They turned out great!  I love how you did the sky!

Are the little flowers buttons?  They are such a cute detail.

Those look great on the orange wall. I especially like the wispy clouds in the first pic.

I hand-sewed a channel on the back and put a piece of dowel through it.  Then I sewed a short loop in the centre of the channel, just below the top of the quilt.  Then we put a monkey hook through the wall, and hung it on that.  A bit of overkill since the monkey hook can hold 50 pounds, but they`re so easy to use!  Invisible hanging!
