The Asian "Doorway to China" wall hanging is complete and on its way to California as I write this. I have been asked to make another one and when I get the middle photo transfer, I will start on it.
It was hand quilted and bound with some red that I had on hand that matched the strips. I didn't have enough of the dark blue print nor that shade of red broadcloth left and so I perused my stash and found some red that had fine black splotches on it. It turned out to be the same shade of red. I put a label on the back and a hanging sleeve.
In case no one has figured it out (or I forgot to mention it), the photo is of the Great Wall of China. Maili took it when she went to Beijing.
Now, on to something else. Have a great weekend doing whatever you want.
