Another Small Wallhanging

Just a little piece I did two or three years ago from a pattern I found in Quilting Arts magazine. It is raw edge fused applique - for non-quilters, you cut out all the pieces that have been backed with a "fusible web" and iron them on the background. The batik fabrics work really well in this method because they are so firmly woven. It is then machine quilted quite heavily. You could also do lots of decorative stitches, add beads, sparkle, etc. I was just beginning to get a little better at machine quilting. I am still not great at it but much more comfortable.
