This little 15” square “Vera” napkin (thrifted a couple of weeks ago) is now a completed little topper! Yay!! I had purchased it for a demo this past weekend at an event called UffDa Fest/Festival of Quilts. (follow the link to photos of the beginnings of this tale) A little bit was left incomplete, after Saturday, so this morning it was this……..
With some more white thread stippling and dark blue “thread sketching” left. As always, Ms Juki behaved perfectly…………..
A couple of back shots showing the navy blue thread used to define the flowers better.
Some final texture pics………….
The backing/batting was cut away using Gingher “duck bill” Applique scissors…….
Working from the back (piece is top side down), I pulled gently on the backing/batting and cut next to the stitching I had done just inside the manufacturer’s edge stitch……………
Because of the micro-stippling right up to the edge of the piece, I won’t do anything to “seal” the cut edge….no real need to, as the super dense quilting will take care of it.
Yes, it is slightly stained from the previous user but I consider this as just adding to the “personality” of the little piece.
Top thread: (white) Isacord, 40 wt. (navy blue) Glide,40 wt. Bobbin thread: (white & navy) Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly, 70 wt.
Batting: single layer Hobbs Heirloom cotton’/poly (80/20).
Have a “quilty” day!!!!!!!!!
