Turn Your Favorite Bag Front Panel into a Quilted Wall Hanging

Here's how I made it!

Trim edges.

Need to back it with fabric.

I used Lite Heat and Bond to attach the fabric to the back of the burlap panel.

I pressed/ironned it on the fabric.

Peeled the paper off.

Then press/iron it onto the burlap.

Trim again and add the border fabric.

I did the sewing of the texture background at our camper.

Yes I have a sewing room in our camper. We eat outside!

I assembled the the background fabric using my Texture Quilt Pattern. It is available on Craftsy.com as a PDF Downloadable Pattern.

Finished the quilt top!

It's ready to quilt.

I thread painted on the dragon flies to outline their wings and body. I Pebble quilted on the burlap with wavy lines in the border.

I quilted loopy loops all over the background.

A little hand stitching for the hanging sleeve.

My customer posted a photo on facebook for me to see it in her Hair Salon. 

She said:
"Here's the beauty!!! #Dragonflyburlapbag Gone Wild!!!!
By Marcia Wachuta"

"This is hung by a "unfinished" walking stick that Jer is making out of a cedar tree that we cut.., it's a temporary piece... just wanted to get it hung!!!♡♡"

I love to create for my customers! 

Other quilts that I created using my Texture Quilt Pattern to create the patterned background. Links are under each photo.
