Almost done!

Almost but not quite done! I still have some embroidery to do on this crazy quilt wallhanging and then the finish work. I'm on a mission to get it completed this weekend. Its about 24 inches square, foundation pieced by machine but totally hand embroidered. Most of the fabrics came from my stash but I did purchase a few.

There's so much more I could add to this wallhanging but by the time I've got the backing, binding, sleeve and label sewn on tomorrow, there will be approximately 100 hours of work in it.
Time to move on to my quilt show quilts!


  1. your piece looks great - we need close ups of your beautiful embroidery - have fun finishing.

  2. Wowee! It's great! I DID look close (click on the photo then hit the plus sign to enlarge it) and the detail is wonderful. I especially like the embroidery designs against the darker background, along the outside curves. What a variety of stitches! I bet you get a ribbon for this one!

  3. So beautiful Mayleen, I love all the hand embroidery!

  4. Oh! wow! this is absolutely gorgeous!!!! I love this, and yes I can imagine the hours that have gone into this! good thing it's only and small quilt huh!!!!

  5. What a beautiful finish, Maylene. I can sure understand why it's difficult for you to part with it. Such excellent workmanship!
