ooh, ooh, quilting on vintage linens is just sooooooooooo much fun! I have three projects going:
First, the handkerchief quilt named "Victoria" is now bound.
This little table runner is at the most fun stage, as I put in the parts that actually affix the linen firmly down on the underlayment..
and I just started the third one: a 'mourning' handkerchief - to be used by a woman in mourning... in this case, the hankie is mostly white, and only a little bit black, so the lady is nearly finished with the mourning period... I'm putting it on a piece of dark gray dupioni silk, and it will be set off-center.
As I go through this project of many hankies, I want to try different ways to set them - center, off center, and who knows what else...
Here are the "bones all drawn out with a Sewline pencil... that's my favorite white marker... this stencil has a sort of Art Deco look to it.
and Mystic just wants to know how all these quilt parts got into his bed - good grief, how's a kitten to take a nap????
Hmmm it's Monday - four more work days til another weekend .... yippee!
