Soooo pretty! This wall hanging is a sample for Stache Fabrics & Notions. This is "Blossoms & Spokes" by Abbey Lane Quilts. It's a very summery, breezy design, lots of great pops of colour in the blossoms. I really love the ones spilled from the basket.
How fun that the bicycle is yellow, with fabulous flower handle grips :)
The background is rather improv piecing with low volume fabrics. I decided to do a variety of designs in each fabric, to add some texture and interest. A few feathers, some wavy lines, some straight lines, some arcs, some rays.
Have I mentioned I might like rulers? Here is the collection I used for this wall hanging - Quilters Apothecary lines and arcs, Kelly Cline's "Kelly Bean" for the ditching, Lisa Calle's QuiltPro for evenly spaced straight lines, Angela Walters "Elvira", and Handi-Quilter Wave rulers.
Some side light to show the texture ...
To add dimension, I used Quilters Dream 100% cotton batting base and Quilters Dream 100% wool batting on top.
You can see the bicycle on the back too. I just adore this low volume print!
I used Hab 'n Dash Glide "Whisper Yellow" top thread and So Fine light yellow in the bobbin.
This will be in Stache Fabrics & Notions shop window next week!
