A Gift For My Sister - Phoebe's Flower Box Wall Hanging

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Back in April I shared with you a baby quilt I made as a gift for a friend from the fabric collection Phoebe in the Flower Box quilt pattern, featured by Missouri Star Quilt Company on YouTube.  The written instructions are in the Quilting Quickly magazine, which is my all-time favorite issue of any magazine.  It contains written instructions and pictures for many of the quilting tutorials that Missouri Star Quilt Co has on YouTube.
Before I bought the fabric, I showed my sister the fabric and pattern, and she loved the combination, just as I thought she would.  She has a thing with purple!  In addition to fabric for the baby quilt, I bought enough to make her a wall hanging as well as several table runners to sell in my Etsy shop.

This is the quilt hanging on the wall in her living room.  I believe it is behind the sofa.  I haven't seen it yet, because we live many miles apart.  Sisters at heart, though we're far apart.

I used lavender thread for the quilting, and I am pleased with it.  I had the thought that white would be too stark, navy blue would be too dark, and gray would blend in too much, so lavender it was.  Or maybe I didn't really think about it that hard and just used lavender because I had done so on the Phoebe's Flower Box baby quilt I had made!!  Ha ha!

I have quite a few blocks leftover and will be making table runners to sell in my Etsy shop!  Someday very soon, I hope!
