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.

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.

Batiks used in the Wood Lily wall hanging

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.

    The door hanger for quilt displays is such a great idea. If unavailable in stores, it would be easy to make with the right components. I love the scattered pattern and it sure would brighten up any home. Thanks for sharing.
    It’s nice to see your new deck and to know you’ve all settled in at your new home.
    Mr Mickey’s pet stroller is a fantastic idea. The fact that he loves it must make your walks such fun.

    I recently found your website and enjoy your posts. I grew up in eastern Iowa but have lived in the state of Wyoming for over 30 years.

    Could you please tell me where you purchased the hanger that is holding the quilt in your laundry room. I would love to find one like it.

    Thank you!

      You are an awesome ‘Mom’ to have ordered a pet stroller for Mr. Mickey. I had one when our cats were younger and a couple of them enjoyed their outings. Once they became adults, however, they were over going for stroller walks with me. I sold it at a yard sale to another pet ‘Mom.’

      I love this newest wall hanging you’ve made. I’m always concerned to put batiks with a white since they tend to bleed color. Does throwing a color catcher into the washer with batiks absorb all of the bleeding colors so it doesn’t stain the white?

      We, in central PA are also in need of rain. I must prefer green grass that doesn’t crunch as you walk on it. The powers that be should have addressed global warming a long time ago instead of questioning the validity of it. Enjoy your beautiful new deck when your temperatures moderate a bit!

  4. Connie, Always love seeing your projects!! You give us all inspiration to see what we can accomplish with our fabric collections.
    Thanks for the idea of using different color threads when quilting different areas of the quilt. I never thought of that!
    We finally have a cool day, but no much needed rain.

  5. Beautiful wall hanging. I love the colors. I could see that repeated into a quilt.
    The deck looks wonderful. I have a question about Mickey. Is the picture on your wall Mickey? Did you commission a picture of him for your wall. Its really hot here in Massachusetts. I have never seen such a long heat spell. Hope it cools but no snow.

    1. Hi Barb, no that isn’t Mickey on the wall, I picked that up at HomeGoods because it reminds me of him!

    Love the colors you used in the project

  7. Dorothy Clear says:

    Love this pattern, especially the batiks with their wonderful colors! Thank you and love the photos of your sweet little dog.

  8. What a pretty wall hanging. I’m still in a sewing slump, but figure I’ll snap out of it sooner or later. Your new deck looks wonderful and I’m sure you will get a lot of use out of it. Hopefully, the weather will be a little more cooperative and cool down a bit. It’s been so hot here, there, and everywhere! Mr. Mickey’s stomach bug could just have been a reaction to the heat. Ziva went through that a week or so ago, and I really think it’s just the heat.

  9. Just wanted to say thanks for all the free patterns.
    Pray all is well.
    Take care.

  10. What a lovely wall hanging! Love the colors. I am never tired of seeing your great projects.
    Your deck is fabulous. I am sure you will enjoy it. Here too the weather was very hot and humid. Yesterday it rained and it’s now 20 degrees cooler with no sun. I think we will get more rain.

  11. I remember Sadie with great affection. So adorable.
    We love the batiks! So rich! The textures so yummy!

  12. That’s such a pretty little quilt. Great fabrics too. Your deck looks fabulous. You will really enjoy it.

    Connie I never tire of seeing your projects!! This is a lovely wall hanging full of fun bright fabrics. We were in Newton this past week, what yucky weather for the fireworks week. It isn’t any better here although not as hot, but still very humid.
