Vintage + Ms Juki………..

Equals an afternoon of fmq fun!!!! This is the first of 2 matching vintage pieces, measuring 7”x 10.5”.IMG_6602 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! IMG_6596IMG_6597    Finishing the feathered areas, I needed to fill that emptiness with——pebbles!!! Yes!!! Lots of little, itsy, bitsy pebbles!!!!!IMG_6599IMG_6600     How “itsy, bitsy” you may ask????? Maybe this will help put things in perspective…………IMG_6603IMG_6601   Just a couple more little spots in the inside area and…… what shall I do to fill that outside the embroidery “border”??? Stay tuned……………….

    Wow–you are REALLY good at this!

  4. 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!

    WOW! I didn’t even need that dime to show me how tiny those pebbles are. Impressive!
