Hi, I have made over 700 wall hangings in 30 years.  I travel all over the country selling them at art/craft shows.  I only hand quilt and applique which means I pretty much put in 10 hour days 7 days a week.  I don't know what it is like to not have a leather thimble on my finger and be stitching away.  In fact while typing this I feel the draw back to my quilting frame.

I use a leather thimble. It has flexibility and you still have a feel for the needle. But no more needle jabs.

Hi! I am new to the group and I am a big fan of wllhangings! They are of a wonderful size to work out original ideas on and do not consume months of time to finish. I go back and forth between machine and hand quilting. I don't know if anyone has a similar problem, but as I have gotten older I find that I can no longer effective develop a callous on my finger. Every needle jab seems to open up the skin-even with breaks of a day between sessions. Any suggestions? thanks.

Hello. I posted 4 of my wallhangings, from 1st to recent. I have made several to give to Boys and Girls club fundraising auction as well. I do enjoy painting on cloth, adding embellishments, learning thread painting, etc. I also have embroidery on my machine, doing simple items to sell or give as gifts. I love looking at others work, seeing their creativity. Sometimes I use tree branches as hangers in sleeves, esp if wallhanging is of a nature theme.

So far I am still experimenting with different techniques. I find wall hangings are the best sandbox to do that - easier to set aside if I am really not enjoying what I am doing.  Would love to see pictures of your African hangings.

I love African Inspired Wall hangings, and also, I make a lot of generic pieces, It is really where my inspiration blows me, and than I am on the next new quilt.

I also work in in many dimensions, painted quilts, beaded quilts, painted confetti's mosaics and  more. In short I am an all round art quilter.
