Thanks, as always, to Mdm Samm and Carol for giving me a chance to share in this fun flower theme hop!
Sometimes a project just comes together and this was one of those...
I bought an extra wall hanging pattern from Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts two years ago along with some of her batik fabric when I took a workshop with her which produced this quilt...one of my favorites which actually still lives at my house.
I "sat" on the pattern awhile, not sure if I could do it justice :) Then, recently, two generous friends gifted me some Aurifil which "happened" to match perfectly and I knew it was time to make this wall-hanging...(it's called Over The Fence and can be found at the Laundry Basket Quilts link above)
I love the way the top-stitching with the Aurifil blends with the batiks...but holds it's own in making the quilt sparkle...
Sweet little buds as well as full beautiful blooms are all over this little garden fence.
Here are those gorgeous Aurifil threads provided by sweet generous friends which made my project go from the "someday pile" to the Completed Pile, YAY!!
As for a giveaway, I thought I would send this gently used pattern and a new garden embroidery book to a reader who would like them, be sure to let me know you would in the comments. I will draw after the hop...
