Tanya's Wall Hanging

Tanya paper-pieced this wall-hanging to give to her daughter.  They always go to visit her during Easter, so it  has a definite Easter theme.  It's 26 x 29.

I did a stitch-in-the-ditch around each block and each element so make them standout, then did a dense fill around each to really make them pop.

Then I added a lot of detail:

pads of the feet of the bunny, and ridges on the carrot

accent lines on the wings and dress of the garden angel

A crack in the egg, ridges on the carrot, and petals for the flower

shingles on the roof, and curtains in the windows :)


I put feathers in the two borders to create some movement around the quilt:

The backing is the same dark blue as the outer border, and really shows off all the quilting:
