I’m so happy to have finished the Breaking Bad Walling Hanging done for my great-nephew, John.
I had planned to quilt a grid on it but decided to just quilt vertical lines for a more minimalist look and to not stress my shoulder too much. Overall, I’m happy with the the end result and am getting better at not obsessing about a few slightly crooked lines of quilting. If you look closely at the lower bottom corner square, you can see that I used that square as my quilt label. I like how it blends with the fabric pattern.
I took this wall hanging to my women’s book group on Sunday, and after book group, my friend, Sharon, and I went into the lobby at the El Fidel Hotel to take a few photos. We surreptiously duct taped the quilt to an artsy looking window, and Sharon took a couple of nice shots of it. Below is a pic of the back:
I opted not to sew hanging corners or a sleeve on this wall hanging, so that it can be hung with either side facing out using the Art in a Pinch quilt hanger that my sister ordered.
I look forward to giving this to John in about a week.
Linking up to Blossom Heart Quilts: Sew Cute Tuesday and to Red Letter Quilts: OMG as this was my May OMG goal. This was also the first of my 2016 Q2 Finish-Along Goals.
So great! John is going to like this!!
Fantastic! I hope your shoulder is improving and I think your label is very clever. 🙂
This looks great , I was looking forward to seeing it completed. Your great nephew will think yiu are a great aunt !!!
I hope your shoulder is doing ok
He will love this! The backing fabric is just as great as the front, so not adding the sleeve was a good idea, I think. Hope you get to give it to him soon.
Very clever, & the label too. Your nephew will love it. I watched the series, & found it very intense, often disturbing, but kept going back for more!
I love both sides of this quilt. It’s unlike anything I’ve seen. I love the label as well.
What a fantastic quilt! So fun and well done!
