Floral Wall Hanging
At the Sew-N-Sews Luncheon last March, seventeen members said they would like Gail to teach a class based on her Floral Wall Hanging. Gail would like to be clear that this is not her pattern. She saw some similar pieces (see photos at the end of this article) at the quilt show in Fort Myers last January. She doesn’t know who deserves the credit for this pattern, and will do her best to teach it based on how she made it.
To make this wall hanging you will need 1 yard of floral fabric, and 1 yard of solid color fabric (black in Gail's example above). It's best if the solid fabric matches the background color of the floral fabric as closely as possible. The plan is for Gail to teach this class after the 2019 Shop Hop in Florida; HOWEVER, Gail suggests you try to find appropriate fabric over the summer and fall. She purchased her fabric at a shop we visited at last February’s Sew-N-Sew Shop Hop, but this turquoise/black fabric was the only one she saw that was appropriate. You may have better luck finding an appropriate fabric in your home area. In addition, if you purchase the fabric at home, the chances are that your finished wall hanging will be unique!
Here are the photos Gail took at the Fort Myers quilt show, showing other examples of floral fabric appropriate for this project:
