Birthday Go Round – Wall Hanging/Quilt

This quilt/wall hanging is so much fun to make.  It is from “America Makes Fast Quilts“.  The finished size is 27 1/2″ x 27 1/2” but the website gives you options for adding 2 additional borders to increase the size if you want.

You can use any fabrics you like and is great for using up scraps. It can be made for a boy, girl, man or woman by easily changing the fabrics.  It could even be made for a wedding anniversary.  I have an embroidery sewing machine so was able to embroider names.  The original wall hanging leaves the white strips blank and this could be a space for signatures or for pictures.

On the 16th birthday quilt I used fabrics with patterns so did not use the polka-dots, wedge or striped overlays.  The cake and candles are backed with fusible web, ironed on and then satin stitched.  You can quilt the whole piece if you want but I just stitched in the ditch and around the cake.
