I love sewing clothing, but I also really enjoy quilting. I am really inspired by Amy from nanaCompany. Her blog features so many amazing creations. Almost 2 years ago she offered this free embroidery pattern of a quote from Mother Teresa and I loved the mini quilt she made to showcase it. I knew that I wanted to try to make one of my own.
I stitched it up right away and used this tutorial to make a dresden plate mini quilt. I really love how it turned out but it just sat on my dresser until a few weeks ago because I couldn’t figure out how to hang it. I ended up making triangles out of folded squares of fabric and sewing them into the back corners under the binding. I put 2 small dowels into the triangle pockets. The top one is to hang on a nail and the bottom dowel keeps the lower corners from flipping out.
I love having my quilt hanging on the wall now. I am amazed by this embroidery pattern and hope to get to it eventually!
