Friday Finish…..……..

My latest endeavor draws to a close. Begun here, it rapidly moved forward. First, quilting the back piece……….IMG_0355 IMG_0356. On to the front……………Of course, it just must have some feathers………. IMG_0349   Using a Frixion marker, I lightly gave myself some guidelines. IMG_0350.                Done. On to the side motifs……….. IMG_0362 A moment, or two, in the doodling sketchbook and on to the ‘real thing’…………………IMG_0364 IMG_0365   And some background ‘pebbles’………….IMG_0368    The lower area had already been given a bit of definition with a line of stitching, echoing the vintage piece’s scallop above. Below that—-“piano keys” would give dimension without competing with all that’s going on in the vintage portion! IMG_0363   Completing the ruler work, and stitching to front & back together, I give you the “Friday Finish”…………….IMG_0383
