Finished!!!


I finally finished my wall hanging and got it hung!  I was a little unsure of it at first, but now I love it.  Sure beats staring at a plain brown wall all day!  This wall has been blank since we moved in years ago.  We just couldn't find anything that we liked that also didn't cost hundreds of dollars!  When I saw this quilt in the Dare to be Square book I knew it was going to be made into a wall hanging!  So glad it's done!   

 

 I used the Two Left Feet pattern from the Dare to be Square book.  It wasn't too bad, you just had to be sure to line up your seams or the lines would be interrupted.   That really dark color is a chocolate brown, it doesn't show up in a picture very well.  It is really hard to photograph something inside on a brown wall I found out.  So, this is what you get.  I really need to learn how to use my fancy camera to take great pictures...one day!

 I'll be linking this up to Sew Modern Monday over at Canoe Ridge.  If you get a chance you should hop over there and look at all the wonderful that is linked together!
