That have been lurking since….well, let’s just say a while! The first one is a little vintage piece I fmq on my Juki while in Texas (in March). You may check this post for details. I knew that the binding fabric was back in Minnesota and I really wasn’t sure how to finish this one, so yesterday I began to add the finishing touches…………….
It needed something more than just a plain binding, so I had a thought that resulted in this little addition.
Notice the fading. This must have been a much loved/used piece! The raised embroidery/French knots were beautifully done. I used my HQ “Glide” foot to stitch around all the motifs and had absolutely no problem with the foot “grabbing” the embroidery…… Details on this one will have to wait til tomorrow. I have rambled long enough and must get to that binding!!! This is just the perfect quilting day…..dreary & rainy and quiet. Til next time, dear friends…………….
