I  want to show you all one of the small wall hangings I did this year that I just love. It was very hard not to keep it for myself because I love everything about this little quilt, but I know that it is in very good hands. It was made with Anna Marie Horner Voile, Little Folks. I really enjoyed working on this quilt. I did the circles using needle turn appliqué.

This is also the very first time I ever did any kind of hand quilting. I really love it! I mean I think it turned out sooo great! I wanted an all over stitch and I like how it turned out. I think that the stitches give this quilt movement.

I had some left over pieces for the back, and since AMH is one of those fabrics you make sure to use every last scrap I tried to make the back interesting too.

I thank you for stopping by and taking the time to check out my little quilt. I would love it if you checked out the rest of my blog. I really love to read everyone's comments and I reply to every last one. I love the community of online quilters as I get very inspired by each and every one of you! I would love it if you choose to follow me on my quilting journey.

Happy crafting!!
