So many ideas; so little…..ummmm…….

Time, errrr…..energy……well, you get the idea! Sandwiched and at the ready. Swirls of ideas to rein in, after all, it’s such a little piece…………………..002

just barely 11”x 17” and as white as it’s going to get. Coming from a packed full bag of linens that were my maternal Grandma’s, it’s lazily resting on a beautiful piece of periwinkle dupioni silk. This makes piece #3 awaiting stitching glorification! Thread….yet to be chosen but layered with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 (cotton/poly) and wool. The texture will be amazing! Stay tuned……………………

    Aww…and the wait begins! Anxious to see what you create with that well aged linen. I’m sure words will escape me when I see the finished product!!

    Was wondering how you finish it off after quilting is done. The linens are finished, but what about the backing?

      At this point, the “plan” is to do some stitching on the blue silk and do a narrow binding (traditional) as the piece is a smaller one and I ‘think’ I want the finish a tad larger. This thought might change, however. Thanks so much for stopping by!!! Hugs………………….
