Sewing Room Wall Hanging

A fun quilt for me with machine applique, hand embroidery
and FMQ on my Janome Horizon.
Thanks to Lori Kennedy at the Inbox Jaunt for the spool quilting motif.
The scissors were from my doodling and her encouragement to try new ideas.
The sewing charms are from Bohemian Findings @ Etsy.

Here are the FMQ spools and floral motifs.

I tried some FMQ words around the thimble.
I like my FMQ scissors around the applique scissor block.

King size Sampler Quilt

Here's the finished quilt my husband wanted me to make. 
I call it "Quilt a Dream" 
It's my homage to what I love to quilt: 
Applique and hand embroidery from from Bunny Hill and Lynette Anderson, 
piecing from Ryokan and other traditional blocks. 
And my favorite thing: FMQ on my Janome Horizon.
I love it:) 
I designed the layout in 2013 and finished quilting the FMQ this July.
(I quilted the top in four quarter sections 
and the borders and then assembled to finish quilting)
Here's the first assembled quadrant before quilting
