Homeward Dove Wallhanging

Finished this folk art-art wallhanging today, based on the song from Leonard Cohen that I had previously posted, "lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove.". I will wait and give it to Jim's sister for Christmas.

Machine quilted and then the applique added and then the dove feathers added to the pocket, with perle cotton emblishment here and there.

  1. Oh, Nancy, this just takes my breath away. Such a simple, yet meaningful, wall hanging.
    But where do you get all the dove feathers?

  3. Hi Nancy,
    Love it! I like the idea of machine quilting first and adding applique over the top. i must try that on my next quilt for my grand daughter.
