Easter Wall Hanging Quilt Top
So far I have been able to make a wall hanging quilt for every holiday since Valentine's, actually Christmas if you include the magic quilt. For Easter I decided to incorporate a cross into the quilt to remember that Easter is not just Easter eggs and bunnies. Sure enough, when my 4 year old saw my fabric choices, she did asked me why.
As you can see, the fabric choice was mine. It looked ok to me when I was at the local JoAnn's. But obviously, I still needed a lot of learning and practicing for picking the right fabric combinations. But since I have the easter bunny, easter egg, easter lily and the cross all together and I wanted to start the project already, I still continued with the plan.
While going through online and some magazines for a quilt pattern to follow, I finally decided on the book "Quilted Devotions". Because the sizes for the finished blocks is just perfect for the wall I have been using for my quilts. Lisa Cogar called this pattern "Jacob's Ladder".
The intimidation/apprehension I always felt when I started a quilting project is slowly diminishing. Even when I know my fabric choices were not great. It was still a good satisfying feeling finishing the quilt top.
I am sure you would have noticed by now that I don't like to have lots of leftover fabrics. Most of the time I used the same fabrics to the back. This is the backing for the quilt.
Will post the finished project again when I am done with the quilting. Thank you for visiting.
