I'm joining in with the Bloggers' Quilt Festival for the first time! I want to show a wall hanging I made last year, so this will be entered in the Mini Quilt category.
The pattern is Quiltessential's Art Deco Inspired wall hanging 2, it is made using reverse applique and fusible binding tape so that the final effect is of a stained glass window.
I finished the quilt with faced binding as the bias tape runs right along the outside edges of the hanging.
I did straight lines radiating out from the "sun", but I didn't want to cross the black lines or quilt in the pink/red sections, so it was lots of stopping and starting. I didn't backstitch as it would be too visible so that left me with thousands of threads to bury! OK, that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but there were loads of them.
(Sorry about the centred text, Blogger won't let me change it)
Confession? I didn't bury those threads, I pulled them through to the back and tied knots in them along with the bobbin threads. In my defense, the back looked awful with the black stitching where I'd sewn the fusible binding down and it also developed a hole at one point... Needless to say, no photos of the back (though I did show it in my original post...).
And this? This is the fat quarter bundle of solids I bought to make this wall hanging. Lesson learnt - read the materials list before buying bundles to make a project. I actually only needed a handful of solid scraps!
Thank you for visiting me and my mini quilt, enjoy the rest of the festival!
