Back to quilting!!

Feels like a while since I've posted about a quilt.

So here's my latest quilty finish ...


It's a wall hanging for my sewing room.

I found the images for each block using this Flickr tool, then printed each image onto fabric sheets.
Easy DIY fabric designs!!!


I enjoyed hand quilting this one too!


I've called it "Flickr Flowers".

Hope you have a great weekend.
I will be flat out in bed trying to shake off a persistent lurgy!!!

Happy stitching!
Andi :-)

Beautiful! I can't believe you hand quilted that. It is amazing and what patience you must have. By the way what was the reaction of the couple from o/seas who you gave that quilt to? Hope you are feeling better.

This is beautiful! I never would have thought of making the flower fabric that way. So pretty!

Jenny said...

Do you need to ask the people if you can use their photos? I've wanted to use pics from flickr, but not sure if it's ok to just use?

BUMBLE BEANS said...

Can you wash those images? or not? it looks so darn cute! love the colors!

Kate said...

What a great idea! I've always loved how you can make any word out of letter pictures on flickr, but for some reason hadn't thought to print them on fabric, would be a great way to personalize a kid quilt. Super pretty quilt.
