Stop seven on the Lipari bloghop belongs to Elisabeth Vaughan of Shark’s Dinner who created her own design using paper piecing and appliqué and has come up with a wallhanging rather than a quilt.
The Oakshotts look different in different lights, they are absolutely fascinating. I’ve hung my ‘Heaven and Earth’ wallhanging over my bed and I love how it goes from very dark to shimmering like a jewel depending on the time of day.
Elisabeth’s design is ideal for re-sizing to suit your needs and you can download the persimmon templates from her blog, which also gives you all the instructions you’ll need to create your own moment of heaven.
She chose Lipari Marina as her backing fabric:
but no batting and no quilting. I was worried that it would make the wallhanging too rigid and then it wouldn’t shimmer in the light as much.
