My Wholecloth Sample....top DONE!

This first photo is of what I had left to quilt today...

The whole cloth sample itself measures 21"x21". Hand-quilting, DONE! Finally! Yahoo! I plan on trimming it about an inch away from the quilted shape, thus it will be rounded.

Now, what I need is some input on suggestions on what to do with it. Some say to make a pillow with it. Some say to make it into a wall-quilt, and others say a table topper. I would like to see what the majority suggests. So please comment on that for me... 8-)

It's a beautiful piece. What about one side of a bag to hold handwork?,

Great job, Myra! You must have inherited way more patience than I did. I vote for a wall hanging. After all the work that went into it, I'd hate to see it get dirty in a pillow or table covering.

It is gorgeous! Have you considered sending it to me? Oh, I see 'call me crazy' has already suggested that idea. Seriously, I would use it as a wallhanging.

This is just beautiful! My long armer just gave me a whole cloth she did and wants me to color it in with colored pencils. I will show it once I get it done. But yours is hand quilted and just fab!

You stopped by my blog Myra, so of course, I had to come visit yours. And what a beautiful project to see! Congratulations on completing such an heirloom. You do beautiful hand quilting! I think it will be pretty no matter what you make it into but the pillow or wallhanging would be safest (no food involved). :o)

I'd display it as a wallhanging.

Wow! That is just gorgeous. I vote for wallhanging. But, I might be tempted to use it as the central block in a bigger quilt. Wow!
