Madison's Wall Hanging

As soon as I finished Ava's wall hanging last week, I knew I needed to make one for my little grand-daughter Madison.

I used scraps for this banner as well - all in pinks and purples - and for the background, I used some Kona Charcoal (I think!).  I really was hoping for more contrast between the purple star and the background, but it's not so bad.

For the quilting, I used Aurifil 50 wt in Dove (#2600) and quilted some FMQ flowers.

The backing is a Cotton & Steel print from a couple of years ago - I love those cute purses!

My step-daughter, her boyfriend and the two girls are moving this weekend so I might be able to snap a picture of the new banners hanging on the girls' bedroom wall!

Quilt Stats:

Pattern: Letters were from the Spell it with Fabric patterns by Moda Fabrics
Size: 14” x 40”
Fabrics: All scraps
Thread: Pieced and quilted with Aurifil #2600 in 50 wt
Recipient:  Madison

I will be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at Anja Quilts for TGIFF.

I don't think you could have only made just the one, either! I hope the move goes smoothly for them and both girls like their banners. :)

You come up with the greatest things! What a great way to use more scraps. She is going to love it! Good luck with the move.

Hi Izzy,
This is just adorable, and if I have a great-niece she will have one as well. I am 100% sure Madison will love and enjoy this very much. ~smile~ Roseanne

Adorable. I need to start using letters more. I just picked up the new letters/numbers pattern from Jaybird Quilts. Thanks for linking up with TGIFF.
