Quilted wall hangings are so much fun to make especially when you use a bright and colorful collection of batiks with a quilt block like Wood Lily.
Wood Lily Wall Hanging
I hope you don’t get tired of seeing all of the quilt projects that I make with batiks, they are still my favorite fabrics for quilting.
I used the Jewel Fat Quarter Bundle by Jacqueline De Jonge for Anthology Fabrics. I also added a 1/2 yard of the Jewel Daisy to use for the border and binding.
I received the fabrics and pattern from Fat Quarter Shop. They have designed a Wood Lily quilt kit for their Vintage and Classic series that is available now. Be sure to stop by their blog and learn more about the Wood Lily Classic & Vintage quilt and FREE block.
The Wood Lily quilt block is beautiful and I did a little searching and found that it was also in the Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt book which has 6-inch blocks but I think it was paper pieced.
Oversized quilt blocks are so much easier to make!
Oversized Quilt Block
The Fat Quarter Shop has a free pattern for the quilt block if you would like to make it.
For now, I thought it would be fun to show how the quilt rows go together. Can you guess what size this block is? The unfinished size is 24½ inches x 24½ inches which makes piecing this so easy.
I added a 2½-inch border to the block and have a wall hanging that looks nice in the bedroom.
Mr. Mickey had a stomach bug last week but is finally feeling better and agreed to do a little posing.
The quilting is just a simple meandering stitch that I did with my vintage 15-91 Singer sewing machine. I used a 50wt Aurifil thread with white on the background and a red thread on all of the batiks.
Our new deck is finished and ready to use if the weather ever cools down. We haven’t had rain in quite a while and you can see that everyone’s grass has gone dormant. I think it has been at least 6 weeks since we have mowed.
