Deer Lover’s Quilted Wall Hanging

DSCN1154

A friend of mine asked me to make him a wall hanging from this panel his wife picked up at a close out sale. He only wanted it bordered and quilted with a ‘way to hang’ it on the back. I showed him pictures of panels cut and framed to look like a window but he was sure of what he wanted, so here it is. I used moss green batik for the first border and bark brown batik for border #2. After quilting I used a black binding and added a hanging tube on the back. He was very happy with the result and I will probably get a few more orders from his friends.

I am a retired grandmother living in hot and sunny Florida. I spend most of my days doing what I love: sewing and quilting. I have a spoiled rotten Boston Terrier named Sami who keeps me busy mostly by cleaning up after her and refilling holes in the yard that she insists on digging and burying her toys. Of course then she digs them up and brings them into the house resulting in...you guessed it...more cleaning. I will be posting pictures of Sami, quilts, flowers, and other things as they come along. Glad to have you join me.

  1. Hi Peggy,
    Nice job – sometimes we want to make projects harder for ourselves than they need to be. This is just perfect! I wanted to try one of those window panel things too for the animal quilt I just made, but he didn’t want anything that complicated. So there you have it – I hope you get lots more orders! ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Thanks Roseanne. You are completely correct. I am the worse to take something simple and add details that are not called for or needed. Being in hot Florida not too many calls for quilts so maybe wall hangings are the way to go. 🙂

      1. But, that is also our job as quilters too. We could take the easy way, but we like to challenge ourselves. Plus we have to expose the uneducated to all the possibilities that could be their’s. Besides, it gets cold in Florida . . . for one month! HAHA
