It's been a crazy couple weeks, lot's of things going on. The hustle and bustle of the season. Sewing, gift making, shops to run. If that isn't enough we have been getting the outside of our house painted and having a water heater on the fritz!
So, I suppose it's possible I didn't even take pictures of the wall hanging. It is possible. I am happy to say that Kate Alicea loved it! She requested something bright. She loves Anna Maria Horner and Kaffe Fasset. I was happy about that! And since I wanted to make feathers...this was the perfect time to do just that!
I decided I wanted to ROYGBIV something. The bold, bright fabrics tipped the scales in that direction. What I did take pictures of was just the top. And each feather. Imagination will be required for the remainder of this post!
The finished size ended up being 24" x 33". I did straight line quilting that turned out amazing. You will have to trust me on that one! The back was a gorgeous floral. I honestly loved it!
I had a wonderfully fun time making this. I got to try something I had wanted to try, use some of my favorite fabrics and Kate Alicea was happy! Win, Win!
This is a project I will revisit again. On a bigger scale. And I cannot wait!
