More like a WIP (work in progress), I guess! My “approach” to this piece is being worked out as I go. The center design was kind of a “no brainer” as the embroidery really provided the inspiration. (more photos may be found here)
To anchor the sandwich together, I began with that center design, then moved to stitching both sides of the existing embroidery, filled in some feathers and then moved to the outer, scalloped edge and stitched just on its inner edge (when finished, I will cut away the backing/batting close to this stitching and either leave it or cover that raw edge with a narrow satin ribbon applied with hand stitching).
The border design just had to be this………
Thread: (Both top and bobbin) Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly (70 wt). Batting: (single layer) Hobbs Heirloom cotton/poly(80/20). This is being quilted on my Juki TL2010Q.
A busy week ahead (seems like they all have been that way!). See y’all soon……….
