A New Fascination

Hi everyone...  since I have completely run out of UFO's (NOT) and have no other Works-in-Progress (DEFINITELY NOT) , I went off on a new track!! Well, almost a new track.

I have become very fascinated with the work being done by quilter Cindy Needham (cindy.needham.com).  She mounts vintage linens on an underlayment, and then quilts like a wholecloth quilt...

So I started with a linen placement with lovely lace work on it that I bought on eBay:



 So I mounted it on a piece of fabric, I can't remember what kind - something slick and shiny, and got out my stencils and started drawing... these are just the "bones" of the quilting - now I can fill in lots of detail work...  this is really fun.
(those horizontal lines are just basting lines and will come out - no worry. 




And these came in the mail - a gifting from a friend in an online guild... let's see, I will put something bright with them...  wonder what - fun to consider...  I love these type of 'starter units'... thanks!!

Weekend starts soon!!  Lots of sewing time...

Happy Quilting,

Kate

Your new project is really pretty! The UFOs (that may or may not exist) can wait.
