Here is a picture of my freshly finished wall hanging Bird Song from the book Mini Wonderful Curves by Jenny Pedigo and Helen Robinson for Sew Kind of Wonderful with Sherilyn Martensen.
I follow both Sew Kind of Wonderful and Sherilyn Martensen on Instagram and I have been inspired by Sherilyn's quilting on many beautiful projects. I wanted to try quilting similar to hers on my wall hanging. I need more practice but I am pleased with this result.
I used Quilters Dream Dream Puff batting which is a nice thick polyester batting. I like the 'puff' that results when this batting is densely quilted. I also like a faced binding. However when I steamed the binding heavily to get it nice and flat on the back of the hanging, it really flattened the batting. So I machine washed and dried the hanging and the batting flatness was corrected but the edges do not lay nice and flat against the wall. I probably should wash it again and block the hanging while drying to see if that helps.
I like to wash and dry my quilts after making them. I like the look that results. Also, I like to write the label details directly onto the back of the quilt with an acid-free fine tip marker. To keep the text straight, I draw lines with an air-erasable marker that conveniently disappear.
