Home Sweet Home wall hanging

I finished it. The wall hanging is hand quilted. I never did learn how to quilt in a hoop. I guess that you can tell. I think that I will have to get more of those stick-um up hooks for the hallway. I still have the two bathroom doors left with no wall hangings on them. The thing about quilting a wall hanging as opposed to a bed quilt is that it will not be subjected to the same wear. So then I can use thin fabric on the backing. And that facilitates the hand sewing.

Congrats on finishing the hand quilting! I can't really see it in the photo, but I'm sure it's beautiful. We had a prize-winning quilter come to our guild to teach hand quilting, and she doesn't use a hoop either.

You're going to have to dedicate one wall in your house for just these little wallhangings! Can you see them all hanging together in a group? You can have your own quilt gallery!
