Days, er weeks, have passed…………

And I’m progressing on this pretty piece……….IMG_1536 If you need to toddle back to it’s beginnings, please, follow this link. It contains the details of this piece (thread used, batting, etc). The outer edge of the border area will be a “matchstick” stitching to further emphasize the swags.IMG_1127As you can see, I’ve begun this above the swags. This is the edge, as sandwiched…..IMG_1118 (2) I am wanting to use the delicate scalloped edging that was already there, so, the first step is to trim back the batting to a little less than this scallop……IMG_1555 IMG_1556 The next step will be to trim the backing 1/4” more than this beautiful edge…..and here is where I will leave off and spend the next days accomplishing this phase! Yes, it’s putsy but oh so worth it. Again, to find the details/beginning of this, please hop over to my previous post.

Have an awesome weekend!!! Beautiful brisk Autumn weather, here (S.E. MN, south of Winona) but there are some flaky changes coming in a couple of days………sigh………..

    I enjoyed your meticulous and beautiful work and am in awe since I believe that a piece such as this isn’t in my future. I so admire quilters who tackle such intricate designs. Congratulations.

      Each of us are blessed with different passions. Mine just happens to be the quilting/stitching portion of this textile art known as quilting (I am not a “piecer”……..!). I do so appreciate your sweet comment and know that if this type of stitching obsession ever grabs you, the hours spent practicing/learning it will be “hard work” joyfully(!) embraced. I search out these vintage pieces as they are “whole cloth” bits just begging for additional texture, embellishment and love that I canNOT wait to give them (with NO piecing involved….lol!). Thanks so much for your visit……hugs……..Doreen
