These hand embroidery patterns were once part of one long piece that originaly was made as a wallhanger. I bought this wallhanger last july in a triftstore ( see this post). I thought they could came in good use for another project someday.
And these are my Japanese fabrics. I saved them for a special project too! Not yet knowing what project that would be!
But last week I had the embroidery patterns in my hand and saw how well the colors blended with the colors of the Japanese fabrics. Then I knew how to use them.... a quilted wallhanging!
I kept it simple by sewing stripes in different sizes around the embroidery patches and then cut the patches in six equal sized squares.
The finished top is ready now for basting and quilting, a lovely little work for doing this upcoming weekend!
Have a lovely creative weekend too!
