I'm back . . . well sorta . . . but here is a LOVEly wall hanging
I love the color pink and this wall hanging I made just hits the spot. I have been afraid to decorate with pink because it is very gender specific, but for Valentines day . . . I'M THERE with the pink. I found this amazing quilt pattern at Moda Bake shop and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it . . . and so my creation began. I shrunk it down so it could be a wall hanging. I think it measures about 27 x 30. I used 12 inch x 6 inch rectangles ( I just cut the strips to 12 inches rather then 16 inches.) I found that way cute pink print at my JoAnn's store and gathered up matching pieces to make it in to this amazing quilt. I only used the LOVE part because . . .well you can figure it out . . .it wasn't big enough to put the hugs and kisses part that Natalia at Piece N Quilt in her quilt BUT it still turned out so cute. Here is a before shot so you can get the idea of how the quilt is put together. . .
