I thought that I would show you a finished wall hanging that I recently finished for a cousin who lives up north. (I hope she already received it or I just blew the surprise.) I love most paintings of Barbara Lavallee, a renowned artist in Alaska. She has a variety of prints and now you can purchase quilt patterns of some of her more famous painting. I have made two of the quilt patterns that are available on-line. I was lucky enough to have some connections in Alaska and they stopped by The Quilted Raven in Anchorage, AK. and pick me up a couple different patterns.
Her patterns were the first that I tried applique on. I made 5 of these around Christmas. My wrist was exhausted from cutting so many pieces. Batik fabrics work great for these. Well, on to the next project. I linked up to Such a Sew and Sew with projects you finished in March.
