I’ve decided to enter the Hello Kitty Wallhanging in the Modern Mini Challenge over at Ellison Lane Quilts (thanks to the encouragement of my guildmates!). So, here’s a little more about it:
I made it based on a coloring page my daughter picked out, and did the center design and letters with fusible applique (remember the tutorial I did on that?)
The tricky bits were the bubbles, which I wanted to have a little sheen to them, so I used a double layer of tulle and some iron-on vinyl to get the look. They were tricky to sew down, but worth it.
I did my usual meander to fill in the grass and the sky, but did try a new design in the outer border using little loops around the letters.
The finished quilt is 25×30″, just the right size for over her bed!
