Free-motion and Facing



Last Fall I played with some free-motion stitching. I stitched out the doorway and then attached it to the NYC skyline piece of fabric that was a leftover from a purse project and then free-motion stitched that.
It's been waiting around patiently 'til I had the time and reason for finishing it into something. Well, I've been wanting to try my hand at using a facing for the back of wallhangings and now that I've completed the big 'Re-Organization' the doorway to NYC found it's way to the top of the pile and was perfect for my facing attempt.
For the backing I used a fat quarter Hoffman Challenge sent me, and a cabbage fat quarter for the facing. [Perhaps the cabbage thought they'd land up kraut before I got around to using it.]
I like the way it turned out. Really quick and simple.
