Introducing "Bouquet Memories" wall hanging. This pretty little wall hanging measures 17" x 23", features 3D flowers, straight line quilting, and a sweet little blue bird to boot!
I had the honor of working with Shari and scouring the wonderful fabrics in the online shop before designing this charming wall hanging for ya'll to enjoy!
You can see the tutorial on the Bear Creek Quilting Company blog by clicking here.
I fell in love with the diverse grouping of prints in this line and really enjoyed creating with them.
There are however, two additional colorways available in this line -- and Bear Creek Quilting Company has them packaged up and ready to ship from their online store. Click here to see the fabric bundles in the online shop.
As always, the Aurifil worked beautifully for machine piecing, hand sewing, and straight line quilting the sample. Lovin' those #Aurifil threads!
Oh, and also on this project, I was able to try the Aurifil Lana Wool 12Wt thread -- it stitched like a dream!
There is one little portion of the wall hanging that will be presented on my blog later today -- the Little Blue Bird.
Stay tuned for the Little Blue Bird template and some wool applique stitching basics that will help you duplicate the sweet Little Blue Bird on your wall hanging.

The kit comes complete with the beautiful Hoffman of California Bouquet Memories fabrics AND 3 large spools of Aurifil Mako Cotton 50wt threads in colors that are perfect for the piecing, hand sewing and quilting of the wall hanging. (Sorry -- my little Redbird and Elan scissors are NOT included ;)
