"We are taking our first ever trip to Europe in May 2008 for our 40th wedding anniversary, so I wanted to stitch a wall hanging of renditions of famous European artists so I can be inspired for the trip whenever I look at it. I used all photo stitch designs for the pictures, then machine embroidery quilted in the sashings. I purposely made the border asymmetrical, the embroidery was purposely not centered in some of the blocks, and I used border fabric to replicate a gold embossed frame. I then hand stitched various size beads in several of the sashings that weren't quilted. The overall size of the wall hanging is 42"x46" and hangs in my breakfast nook. I did the embroidery on my Brother 4000D and the piecing on my Pfaff 2140."
