Blogger’s Quilt Festival – New York Beauty Wall Hanging

When I submitted my first entry to the Large Quilt Category of the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, I thought that would be my only entry this year.  But when I read that Amy  is extending the deadline for entry to the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, I decided to enter another of my quilt to the Small Quilt Category.  This wall hanging was completed a few years back when I was at a very low point in my life.  I used sewing and quilting to keep me sane and it helped me pulled myself out of the pits.  Till this day it is still my favourite.  It is a combination of machine embroidery and quilting.  The machine embroidery pattern was purchased from Laura’s Sewing Studio.  She did a great job digitizing the New York Beauty.  Using the New York Beauty blocks, I sewed them into flowers.  I also embellished the quilt with free-standing butterflies and buttons

The quilt measures approximately 40 x 25 inches.  See the full quilt hanging on the wall.

I bound the quilt using prairie points.
