The gift is gifted…….the complete picture……

Last week I gave you little “peeks” at a gift that would find its way to a new home. That happened last Saturday and, now, a better picture………………Front. IMG_6860     Back IMG_6864    And a better close-up………….IMG_6862   The groom & bride’s initials (left & right, respectively) and, center, last name initial. I haven’t done much with quilted monograming and need to do more, for added proficiency.

Several threads were used on the top (see “tags” below), the bobbin was Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly (on both the Juki and Sweet 16). Hobbs Tuscany Silk batting (double layer) added a very nice loft. Dupioni silk, layered with the vintage piece, really gives the additional ‘shine’ factor I desired with this piece.

OK, back to an “in-process” project……

      I think we all want to give something ‘special’/with added meaning sometimes (if we are able). I am thankful that I am able to do such. Your sweet comment is much appreciated…..hugs…………..

      Since the bride’s mom does quite a bit of quilting, the stitched gifts this couple received will have total appreciation for all that went into their creation…..which makes it oh so much nicer for the ones who gift them! 😀
