Easy Floral Wall Hanging

Sophisticated florals peek through a trellis of cream and green tone-on-tones in this wall hanging. The uneven weave in the Laurel Cottage collection by Marianne Elizabeth for Benartex gives the fabrics the look of linen. Look for a curvy quilting pattern to both echo the scrolls in some of the prints and reiterate the pieced green "circular" shapes.
