From fabric panel to quilted wall hanging

As I was going through one of my UFO boxes, I found a fabric panel of Paris.  The fabric panel has a watercolor look.  I decided to free motion quilt the panel and make a wall hanging (finished size is about 27″ x 46″).

I quilted the Eiffel Tower first with black thread – stitched a couple of times over the black lines for a sketchy look.  Then I quilted the background flowers and added more flowers and leaves to fill up the background.  I tried to use thread colors that were a shade darker than the colors in the panel.

I added a pink border and used a wacky flower motif to quilt the border.

It was a fun project to complete. Another UFO out of the box and finished.

Keep having fun quilting and sewing.  Donna

  1. Tres bien! J’adore. What a lovely idea. I’m just considering starting quilting and as a yoga teacher (when C-19 allows), you have given me an idea of a wall hanging for something yogary. Thanks for your posts, they are a bit of joy in a difficult world especially as in my part (UK), I’m on Lockdown 3.

    Namaste

  2. Oh, beautiful! I am so happy that you shared this. I have a yard of paris fabric that has little Eiffel towers on it. I’ve been staring at it trying to think of what to do with it. How to use it…etc. This gives me an idea… to embroider the towers… Now, I’m thinking it might make a nice book cover, or table cover. Thanks so much for sharing this inspiration.
