This is going to be a huge reveal, as I already showed you all what my wall hanging looked like before it was bound. However, we all know that binding is like icing on the cake and just pulls it all together!
This piece was not intended to be this large. I originally was going for a small table runner, but then I went crazy fussy cutting center sqaures and it just evolved. The finished size is 17" by 85"! And while I'm calling this a wall hanging, there isn't a wall in our house that it really will fit on, at least without removing the other decor. However, I still am in love with it and will find a place for it.
I've been practicing free motion quilting every week and this is the first large piece I've done any sort of this quilting on. It is not perfect but I am still proud of it. And I also got to experience sewing through my finger, which I know happens to the best of us.
On a side note, this is my 50th post. I can't believe I've had that much to say!
