I so love the sound of that!!! Backtracking a bit to the post here,, will bring you up to speed on this one. When I purchased this, last September in Kingsport, Tennessee, I just knew it would be a great fmq project!!!! I brought the unfinished cloth to Texas but forgot to bring the binding fabric, so a trek to the local Hobby Lobby produced just the perfect piece!!!!! Gingham!!! Yes!!!!! And one with a bit of ‘poly’ in it…..how retro is that!!! The minimal shrinkage of that fabric will be ideal for this much-washed cloth.
A peek at the back……. It’s a piece of wide backing I had gotten from Connecting Threads and has a ribbon motif subtly running through it. And a final ‘full shot’…….. “Clicking” on any of the photos will enlarge.
Thread: (top and bobbin) Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly (70wt). Batting: Hobbs Heirloom cotton/poly (80/20).
The outer border was fun and a great way to keep the stiffness away (no tight stippling, etc) and allow for a nice over-the-table-edge drape.
