trying to keep the finished project photo thread photos only.

Your wallhanging is just adorable! For the snowflakes in the red border, did you free motion quilt using the papers (I think they are papers-hard to tell from the pics!) as a guide?

Thanks! This is an embroidery design collection called "Candy Cane Christmas" that also includes instructions on how to construct the wall hanging. You can find it on the designer's website -- Claudia's Creations. The snowflake embroidery designs are included in the collection, along with the other embroidery designs you see on my wall hanging. The instructions tell you to cut out the templates for the snowflakes and then place them on the quilt before embroidering them.

Hi Diana! Great to see you!

The quilt is in the finished projects thread. Trying to keep that thread for pictures and discussion separate, that's why I asked Sew Nanny about it in a new thread.

I actually got it quilted and the binding sewn on. It feels great to finish something!

I love your quilt so much, I bought the CD. Panzy's thrilled with the design, and your quilt...now I just need to buy the fabrics.
