The wall hanging is pieced.  It went together pretty easy.  It was fun to see what it would look like.  I have the back and batting ready and I am going to quilt it this week.  The pattern also calls for applique dogwood flowers.  I am thinking of using a method I have seen where you use stabilizer. You sew the fabric to the stabilizer right sides together and then cut the back of the stabilizer and turn it inside out.  That way the edges are turned under, and I thought since it was a wall hanging it would be interesting to make the flowers truly 3 dimensial.  The pattern called for a 7 inch border on the bottom only.  I didn't like the material in the kit for that border and used the matching material of what is in the body.  I think I will scatter the 3D flowers across that bottom border.  I will see after I make them up and lay them out to see what it looks like.  Isn't it fun to personalize a kit so that it is truly your own!
Sew Long for Now!
