The colors are fairly true…….the yellow/upper background may be lighter, more ‘wheat’ colored, though.
The top is all Dupioni Silk. Batting: Hobbs Wool over Silk. (The dimension/texture is amazing! Thread: Isacord poly, 40 wt, “Barewood”(disc. color), Aurifil cotton, 40 wt, (color #2885), [bobbin] Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly, 70 wt, “Evergreen” Dimensions: 14”x 23” (approx)
Here’s a couple of photos of the back and how I add a piece of 3/4”x 1/4” (cut about an inch shorter than the hanging width), oak to stabilize the top for hanging. A “saw-tooth” picture hanger may be added to this to finish the application. The corners are a 3” piece of backing, folded on the diagonal and applied before the binding is stitched the first time.
This method works well on larger pieces, also, if a couple of extra sleeves are added for additional support. I gives a nice clean finish and easy hanging for anyone who doesn’t have an actual “quilt hanging” set-up.
I’ll be sad to see this go out but happy that it will be used for a good cause. Genesis Christian Academy is hosting an event/fund raiser on February 27th called “Night of Knights”. If anyone is in the Kansas City area and want to participate in an awesome evening, please, mark your calendars!!!!! The above piece will be among many other items that will raise needed moneys for tuition and other needs.
Have a great week, everyone! I’m not sure that I will be posting much in the coming days……..many things to give my attention to. But….there will be photos a’comin’, of that you can be sure!!!! Til then, thanks so much for all your delightful and treasured visits and comments!……..
