The next question you may ask…..how will I finish the cut away backing/batting. Yup…..another “stay tuned”………………..

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.

(Side note: this linen piece was purchased for $1.50 at a thrift shop in LaCrosse,WI)

    You certainly do ‘listen’ to your fabric and not only that you do what is says. Looks wonderful.

    Doreen this is just beautiful, I love the clean white color, it’s so intricate and lovely!

      This was a kind of an experiment. I wanted to have it “stand on its own” without being ‘upstaged’ with a colored background fabric. I was a tad hesitant but, now that it’s finished, I really like the effect, too!!!!! Sometimes less is perfect!!!!! So happy you stopped for a visit!!!! Hugs……

  8. What you’ve done with this inexpensive linen is truly lovely. Amazing, too.

    I can’t even begin to imagine any quilting that could have stayed more true to the design and style of the original piece, and yours has enhanced it so many times over!! Absolutely beautifully done!!

      You have really made my day!!!! That’s always my desire…..to “listen” to the project (whether pieced, vintage, whole cloth, etc) and enhance what is already there! Thanks so much for taking the moments to leave your thoughts! Please, visit again. Hugs…………………
