One of my customers called today with a dilemma. She has some vintage doilies she wants to put into a quilt and would like to know how to go about it. A few years ago, one of my wonderful customers, Linda, gave me 9 vintage white cocktail napkins with roosters on them which I wanted to put in a quilt. I am embarrassed to say the quilt top has been done for a few years but I haven't quilted it yet. I even have the backing I want to use so my only excuse is time!!!!
In any event - I promised to post the pictures tonight to give you an idea as to how I attached them to the quilt - I used one of the decorative stitches on my machine so that it appears to be part of the cocktail napkin - (photo #1 without flash)
Photo # 2 - with flash, closer to the actual colour.....if you click on either one you should get a closer look......
...and since I actually found the quilt top (Phew! I was pretty sure I knew where it was!!!) here's a photo of the finished top......
Now that I have found it and since I have the backing, it's going in the "to be quilted" pile and will be a priority to be quilted...... I just have to decide whether I'll be quilting this one or I'll break down and give it to a long-arm quilter!!!! Tough decision!
Update on Lithia Park - the petals and leaves are done Woohoo!!!!! Next phase!
