A Christmas wall hanging


This is the first fusible project I made. It was about 1994, and I didn't know to be concerned about how it turned out. The fused clouds are really heavy, and of course quilting didn't do anything for them as they are so stiff. I hand quilted the upper sky, trying to give definition. It was "birthed" rather that bound, so the edges remain puffy.


Even with all that, I love this angel. My DIL's friend fell in love with it, and wanted one so badly, that for the next Christmas I made her one in teals. She loved it.

Happy Quilting, Becky

I have seen this pattern and thought it would be difficult to make. You did a great job. Was the second one you made as gift easier and what did you change in process? she is very pretty. Love Lois
