I know it’s Saturday, but the day was too spent to share this one when I finished it…….and even got it blocked! As I shared in this post, there were some condition issues that required some ‘surgery’ resulting in a tablecloth that is now a table runner. As you can see, there is mega texture on this one! The edge finishing was done in the same manner as the previous project (see here). I began with cutting away the batting so that it was even with the lovely crochet edge, making sure that I did not fmq right to that edge so that I would be able to fold the backing under………. Next, I marked the backing a 1/4” out from the edge….. I love the Sewline pencil for this type of marking. Its fine point allows for great accuracy. It’s somewhat difficult to see, but I folded the trimmed backing over the batting so that its edge was at the edge of the linen/back from the blue edging. Above photo is from the back. I secure the top to this edge with the Sewline glue stick pen………. and advanced to my Juki to stitch the layers together so that I could finish the fmq. Back to the Sweet 16 to finish the fmq and the topper……………. Care for some tea???? Please, come join me……………………..

This has been an awesomely happy (comical) piece to “work’ on. The embroidery is in perfect condition and its humor really did give me the giggles. Hmmmmm……..so much more to come….so, please, come back. More vintage stitching ahead!!!!!!
