Equals an afternoon of fmq fun!!!! This is the first of 2 matching vintage pieces, measuring 7”x 10.5”. Relatively small but with ample space for some stitching……..The first stitching, to stabilize/anchor the piece, was done either side of the embroidery and just inside the (factory?) stitched edge. I decided on a daisy-styled flower in the center and…..well, there just HAD to be feathers somewhere! Finishing the feathered areas, I needed to fill that emptiness with——pebbles!!! Yes!!! Lots of little, itsy, bitsy pebbles!!!!! How “itsy, bitsy” you may ask????? Maybe this will help put things in perspective………… Just a couple more little spots in the inside area and…… what shall I do to fill that outside the embroidery “border”??? Stay tuned……………….

Your quilting is absolutely amazing! Thanks for linking up at Podunk PIckins.
Thank you so much, Lea Anne. The creative artistry of thread w/ textiles never ceases to amaze and inspire me!
WOW! I didn’t even need that dime to show me how tiny those pebbles are. Impressive!
I’m always afraid I’ll stitch my gloves into those little circles!!!! I really love those tiny stitchings. So glad you enjoyed the piece. Hugs………..
I love it! There’s something about quilting with my Sweet Sixteen that makes me tend to end up putting tiny pebbles in, even when sometimes they oughta probably be larger! I love the flower especially in the middle!
For stitching this tiny Ms Juki hummms right along!!!!!!
I’ve heard a lot of good things about their machines!
I used them when I worked at the Company Store (down comforters) years ago and loved them!
Wow–you are REALLY good at this!
LOL! Thanks so much…….the “vintage thing” has really ‘clicked’ with me. Thanks so much for popping by!!! Hugs…..
