Family Heirloom Wallhanging

The family heirloom wallhanging is complete.  It looks so small on the wall!  The final measurements are 15-1/2 x 15-1/2.

The center block was hand pieced by my husband’s grandmother, Mary Lee Anna Mize Womack, who passed away in 1986 in Louisiana.  The HST’s were made from Kona Denim, Windsor and White.  The batting is Warm and White.

The backing is Blueberry Crumb Cake by Blackbird Designs for Moda Fabrics.  It was machine quilted using Coats and Clark white for machine quilting.  You know, I think I’ve had fewer problems with the less expensive thread.  Imagine that.

I attached a sleeve to the back for hanging.  I tried to use the corner pocket method for hanging but my machine said I was crazy to think he could handle that much fabric at once.    I wonder if he knows he’s about to be replaced.
