I used big fluffy batting and tied it by hand with satin bows and pearls. I finished it off with a battenberg lace label on the back of it. Do you have any idea just how hard it is to find battenberg lace doily's anymore???? I had no idea it would be such a challenge. I finally came up with one in my stash of miscellaneous things in my sewing room. There was not one to be found in any store I checked on. I guess they are from a day gone by, too! That is sad, because they are so pretty. Anyway this beauty gets delivered to grandma this week. I am sure there will be a few tears along with that special delivery. Now that's what quilting is really all about, isn't it! :-) Hope you have a great week planning your next project, that will be bring a few tears for someone special too!
Joan, you did a beautiful job! I'm not usually a frilly, frou-frou person, but this is just lovely! Lucky recipient!ReplyDelete
Joan, I don't think I've ever seen this type of quilt before. And it's been ages since I've seen a tied quilt, but it is very fitting here. My hat's off to you for working with silk! Greetings.ReplyDelete
