Vintage + Tea………………

Is the current theme these days. The last piece, finished with this post, featured this sweet handwork…..IMG_9055    and the direction of the this next cloth is equally obvious…………………. IMG_8962 IMG_8963 IMG_8964   This piece began life as a “card table” size cloth but, due to some major time-damage leaving holes in the center section, I reduced its size and we have a very nice table runner…. IMG_9060   I was able to match the blue lace edging and the quilting should diminish the appearance of the added center seam.                                 The ideas were many and sorted to this……………. IMG_9073    I used an air-erase pen to lightly sketch my idea on the cloth…… so, with a bit of “McTavishing” styled FMQ, (if, by some chance, you are unfamiliar with the Duluth,MN, quilt artist, Karen McTavish, check out her site here) it’s definitely coming along…….IMG_9074    This will make more sense when I show the “big picture”…..soon, I think.

      It was inspiring to work with those vintage pieces. I could “feel” the history contained in each and wished that their creation story could be actually heard. Bringing them into the sunlight/giving them new life gives me pleasure beyond words. ;-D

    How I love that finish! And the backing fabric is fabulous too. With a drawer-full of vintage linens I should try this someday, though the queen size quilts keep occupying my time.

      Wow! Queen size quilts don’t give that “immediate gratification” that we all so dearly love!!!! I hope you can rescue those lovelies soon!!! Thanks for stopping by!!!! Hugs…….
