This little wall hanging was my first attempt at doing a watercolor project. I started this project in September last year and posted about it here. I finally finished it three months later; and although I’m fairly happy with it, I wish the background was a little darker to match the edges of the floral print. It measures 25-inch square and I did medium stippling in the center. This was a Christmas gift for a good friend.
I’d put off making this watercolor project because it was outside my comfort zone; but I’d seen some beautiful watercolor quilts and wanted to make one. Lo and behold, it was not as hard as I thought, and it was actually fun to make.
My BFF Brenda and I made our watercolor heart projects together. She enjoyed making them so much that she made a few for more for gifts. I was the lucky recipient of one of her gifts:
It’s hanging in my sewing room, right next to the door. I’m leaving it up all year round so I can think if my BFF Brenda every day!
