Hanging On The Wall

The Princess is quilted and binding done. I used pushpins to put it on the wall, until I decide her perfect spot!
Here's a few more, I tried to capture the quilting, each area got its own design. 

I even was able to stitch around her head, and her dress as a 'space'.  I couldn't figure out how to get the longarm to fill in the wall area, but I could always do it on my domestic. 

I must say a big THANK YOU to Lola Jenkins. It was in her workshop that The Princess, herself, became the beginnings of a quilt. Also big THANKS to all my friends on the Stitchinfingers site for fabrics we've traded that became part of this wall hanging. 

We are safe and sound. The flooding is in our area but we're smart enough to stay away from any excess water!! 

May God bless you with safe travels,

Nice! I really like this.

Thanks Lynda,
It was a lot of fun, and I may do a few hand embellishments. But for now, I'm enjoying her as she is.
Glad you stopped by,

I like your choices of quilting as each choice truly accents that section of your piece. Great subject!

Thanks Terry,
It takes a lot of time to decide the design and then tweak it to fit. I enjoy doing that part. I know this would be custom quilting if I was doing it for someone else, so I'm sticking with edge to edge for clients at this time. In fact I got a call this morning by a client that wanted one done before she would leave to visit her family up north. I'm leaving tomorrow and won't be back before she leaves. So, she dropped it off before lunch, I got busy right away. She has already picked it up. I'm glad to have it done for her. She appreciated the 'quick' turn around.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
