Blue House Renovation: Step Seven

The journey of the  Blue House wall hanging has been long. Let’s look back at what has been accomplished:

  • We started HERE with my declaration to dismantle my Simple Times crib quilt, (aka the Blue House).
  • NEXT up was deciding how to disassemble the quilt top.
  • THIRD on my journey was the actual dismantling.
  • The FOURTH step took me back to the drawing board.
  • FIFTH on the list of tasks was choosing embellishments.
  • The SIXTH step was quilting my project.

Now it’s time to finish the Blue House.

To finish off the Blue House wall hanging all I have left to do is attach binding, a label and a quilt sleeve. Compared to everything else that has transpired this is a relatively simple task. To bind the wall hanging I used 2 1/2″ strips of the grey fabric used in the body of the wall hanging. The quilt sleeve was also made with the same color. The quilt label was cut from solid white fabric. On it I hand printed details of the wall hanging.

Well, there you have it; my finished Blue House  wall hanging. Unlike it’s predecessor, I absolutely, wholeheartedly love the outcome. I couldn’t be more pleased.

Now just because I have declared the Blue House wall hanging finished doesn’t mean this adventure is over. The Blue House fabric utilized from the original Simple Times crib quilt was only a fraction of the fabric available. From the remains I made at least five other projects. Details of those projects will follow over the next several weeks.

As always, thanks for stopping by!
