Hobbit quilts for Hobbit Day

Hobbit quiltIn recognition of Hobbit Day, my niece just posted a picture on Facebook of this quilted wall hanging I made her for Christmas last year. It might not look like much work, but if you could see it close up, I assure you it was.

I started with a fabric panel from Spoonflower of the vintage Hobbit book cover, added coordinating batik and other fabrics, and then quilted the heck out of the thing. In fact, it really went beyond quilting into thread painting. I even used sparkly white thread to “paint” the snow caps. My shoulders ached after pulling that thick fabric around under the sewing machine for hours! But it’s fun to make things for folks who actually enjoy them.

Oh, and on a Tolkien-related theme, there are the blocks from my multi-fandom quilt having to do with Lord of the Rings.

    1. Thank you, Jill! Yeah, I try to stay away from Spoonflower. Dangerous to the pocketbook. But I love quilting. Since I’ve been publishing and gearing up on the writing this past year, I really miss my quilting time.
