Time has a way of getting away from me, so here’s the “finish” I meant to share 24 hours ago (previous post….. here)…………. This one was total “playtime”…….. really quite a simple stitching idea! The printed grid in the center dictated the “orange peel” stitching. And some thread outlining of the rest was perfect. These table cloths are pure fun and a great way to practice, practice, practice becoming “one with your machine”!
The binding fabric was a leaf/Hosta pattern from the stash of my quilty friend, Alice, who passed away several years ago. Very special meaning for me!!! Don’t hesitate to dig into those hidden-in-your-attic treasures and pull out what grandma or auntie had passed along. Giving new life to these cloths is what this latest “Quilting Vintage” hopes to achieve!
Thread: (top) Invisifil,100wt, (bobbin) Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly,70wt. Batting:Hobbs cotton/wool.
This project gave me many moments of pleasant memories, as I stitched along, of breakfasts before the walk to school, Saturday lunch times and homemade chocolate chip cookies for an after-school treat. What goodies have been hidden away at your place????
Til next time……..happy stitching……….
