Sun, Moon & Stars Wall Hanging

My first original project.  I designed it myself.  I did use a paper piecing pattern from rightpatterns for my sun.  I used my own embroidery machine for all the lettering.  The wall hanging was for a friend for his son's 11th birthday.  He provided the photos and I had my first experience with printable fabric.  It did not turn out as clear as I hoped but the pictures were still pretty good.  It felt good to come up with my own design.  I can really appreciate the work that goes into coming up with a unique design.  I still would tweak it a little if I were to do it again.  My friend was very happy with it and that was the important thing.

It is a little hard to see, but the binding is TaDaDots by Michael Miller.  I won a $25.00 gift certificate from Sky Reve on A Quilting Life's blog giveaway.  Guess what I bought.  Yep.  TaDaDots.  They were perfect.

  1. Love your wall hanging. I have been playing with printable fabric. Before I print I click on the photo quality print option. It seems I never know how it is going to print out.
