A Little Whimsy
A little whimsy is a good thing.
It can make you smile.
It can make your kids or grandkids giggle.
It can allow your Inner Child to come out and play.
And it can remind you not to take your adult self too seriously.
At the May meeting of the Lincoln Quilters Guild, I was the lucky winner of this delightful little whimsical raw edge applique wallhanging created by DeEtte Turgeon. It will hang at the top of my split foyer stairway this summer:
Even the backing and hanger are whimsical:
And I love how she took care to match the label stripes with the backing, and to identify herself and her pattern source, A Single Stem from American Patchwork & Quilting, June 2012 issue:
Check out the echo quilting and the cute, cute button embellishments! Yup. Cute as a bug:
