Here's the "before" picture again:
This panel was a gift from a quilting friend, and I've always wanted to make it into a wall hanging for my sewing room, but it was one of those "I'll get to it someday" kind of things. It's so nice to finally "get 'er done!"
It's a little hard to see all the cute details in the picture, so here are a few closeups of the quilter blocks.
My free-motion stippling is definitely smoothing out. These panels are a great way to practice!
Isn't it just perfect above my sewing cabinet? I love it!
