And some voile binding.  It works well there!

 And each block is unique with my crazy FMQ.  Yep this is me learning as I go.
You can see all the blocks in detail in this post or by clicking on the photo below to be taken to my flickr photos.

For some reason this crazy pattern is something that I HAD to do.  I find it amazing that I could roll with this idea and pull fabrics that I normally wouldn't put together.
And to me.. this totally works! 
It reminds me that I need to break out of my own head and comfort level. And there is nothing bad breaking out of the mold of patterns or color pallets.
I'm so happy to see this each day in my bedroom. 
I'm loving that I have my own work on the walls. 
Thanks for checking out my wall hanging and my other entry is found here.

  2. It's so good to push ourselves on a regular basis, isn't it? Lovely work!
