Monday’s meanderings…………..

Further into “feather land”………….IMG_0438.  I’m thinking I’m really going to love these corner designs—-with the added plumes!!! IMG_0437. For those of you who may have missed my initial information:The machine I’m using is a Juki 2010Q, straight stitch (only) industrial for home use machine. Thread: (top and bobbin) Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly, 70 wt. Batting: (single layer) Hobbs Heirloom cotton/poly, 80/20. I’ve used a dark green batik beneath the vintage piece (which measures approximately 33” square). The backing is bleached muslin…good quality.

Any questions, please, leave them in a comment and I will try to answer/clarify the process.

Note: to catch up on previous process posts, see here.

    I love seeing what you do with these vintage pieces – your quilting is beautiful! I have a couple of small embroideries of Mum’s that she was rejected (one she says is too wonky!) which I thought would be fun to play with like this.

    Absolutely beautiful!!!

  3. D > Wow! They summon up all I most loved about the table linen my mother and – especially – her own mother, used to make. By hand!

      I’m thankful for this machine embellishing trend/process that allows me to do this. Stitching anything by hand these days just wouldn’t happen. Good to ‘hear’ from you…….hugs…..

    It is coming along beautifully. The feathers work so well, the whole piece almost blends together and the line between the original embellishment and the quilting is nearly nonexistent.

    This a beautiful piece as usual, waiting to see the completed project.
