hanging flimsies?

I have finally put my Christmas hangings and quilt away to be seen again later this year.
I love the hanger I bought for one of them but don't have anything that fits it so I decided to hang my Down in the Garden flimsie over it. I am enjoying being able to see it as it is. It had been living on the quilt rack but not in the most prominent position. It will inspire me to finish my Dresden's in the garden centre block too.

Here is a little sneak peek which will stay secret for a little bit longer.....
Did the best corners I have ever done, talk about finally getting the knack of it!


Hope you have a great weekend!

I love that down in the garden flimsy. I just googled it to see what it was about and I really love the colours that you have used rather than those originally used. Keep going, it is going to look gorgeous.
