A Finish to Share

Tonight, I finished off the hand sewing on the binding of this little wall hanging I made from 2.5" squares cut from my FIL's shirts. This quilt is a gift for my MIL's minister. He has been a wonderful friend and support to all of us.

I used parallel line quilting in the cross and cross hatching on the rest of the wall hanging.

There are three wavy lines on each side border.  I still need to add a hanging sleeve.  That should not take too long.

Now, on to the next project...

By the way, my finger is healing nicely. I can do most things that I usually do (except the dishes!--my husband is taking care of them for the next week or two.) Thanks for all your comments on my last post about the evil rotary cutter. It is still in time out!


  1. A friend who just had to have stitches for the same kind of accident said she wished her stitches had come out a little earlier. Her cut had scabbed over the stitches and it was painful to get to the stitches to remove them. Hope you have better luck.

  2. That's amazing that you can still sew! You must have a high pain tolerance!

  3. I get to take the stitches out! mwa hahaha ha!

  4. I'm surprised to read you did hand stitching, man, that must have been challenging! This is such a thoughtful gift for the pastor, after all of his kindness. God bless you ~

  5. How exactly do you put on a hanging sleeve once a quilt is finished? Is it all hand stitched?
