Tulips for Your Wall All Year Long

I really enjoyed making this wall hanging, however it took me a long time to decide how to quilt it.  I wanted something very different that would keep the focus on the beautiful batik flowers, make them pop, but secure them to the background at the same time.  Then one day I just knew what I wanted to do even though I honestly had not thought about it consciously for several weeks.  Probably one of those ah-ha moments that happen when I sleep!

I think you will see what affect I was going for and how the simplicity of soft wavy lines are so quietly there they go unnoticed while giving the micro quilting around and among the tulips and stems a place to ground the focal aspect of the whole piece.

This piece measures approximately 21 x 22 inches, has a muslin back and a sleeve for hanging ease.  Unlikely it will need laundered if regular vacuuming or shaking outside to remove any dust is done a few times a year.  However, if laundered it should be done on a gentle cool cycle and line dried.  A careful pressing from the back with a terry towel folded beneath the tulips may be necessary to get a crisp flat look to rehang.

This item is listed on my Etsy store StitcherMade if you are interested.
