Happy Hands, Happy Heart

I just this morning (woke a little before five bells and couldn't get back to sleep) finished a new fall wall hanging.


It's machine pieced and hand quilted, and measures 21-1/2" square.


I debated for a long time what small block to use as a border around this gorgeous colorful leaf fabric I wanted to showcase.  Then it hit me.  Well, of course, what would be better than the Flying Geese block?  Simple and yet appropriate.


When I change my summer decorations to the fall ones (if I ever get around to it), this new piece will hang in our bathroom in this spot.

Question:
What does Batman do first thing in the morning?

Answer:
He puts on his batrobe and goes to the batroom.

Mama Pea said...

wisps of words - I thought you'd appreciate it!

Susan - What a nice thing to say! Thank you. We all need happy notes morning, noon or night . . . especially because of the memories of this day in history.

That is beautiful! I love the vibrant colors.

Elizabeth said...

I always love your color combinations. So pretty!

Lynne said...

The quilt looks lovely. Like the hand quilting. I find it like therapy when I do it. Great job!!! xo

Mama Pea said...

Dianna - Thank you very much. I do tend to go with the more vivid or vibrant colors. Although I've made many baby quilts using a bit more tamed down colors!

Elizabeth - Thank you so much. What a nice thing to say!

Lynne - Oh, for sure, quilting of most any kind is therapy for me. That's when I do my best thinking!

That is one beautiful piece you have created. I'm up early today, and will most likely be crocheting until I have the mental energy to get my day started.

Mama Pea said...

Kristina - Thank you! I woke up at 4 a.m. today (arrrgh), couldn't get back to sleep and went out to the couch thinking I'd do some handwork but was too tired to try. So I read for an hour and a half! :o\

Love your newly finished Fall wall hanging. Perfect choice using the flying geese as the border. All the colors go so well together. I love quilts that are hand quilted.

You are quite the comedian, ha! That wall hanging is really beautiful. Phil

Mama Pea said...

Sandra - Thank you for your nice words about this small wall hanging. And thank you for commenting!

Phil - Thanks much! That Batman joke has been in our family for a long time. It's not uncommon for someone to say, "I'm going to the batroom for a couple of minutes to talk to the bats." Kinda quirky, I know, but a lot of family jokes are!

Thank you for stopping over and leaving a comment, I appreciate it so. Playing pretend, I like you would play with Barbie Dolls into to my early teen years. Such nice memories.
