Here's a project I've been wanting to do for quite some time .... a Christmas mantel scarf.
Using a design called Heirloom Lace from One Song Needle Arts, I quilted six repeats of the design across a fabric panel that was 84 inches wide. The total height of the design is just a little bit over 18 inches. When the designs were complete, I put another layer across the top of the "quilt sandwich" while it was still on the machine. Straight lines were sewn down the sides and across the bottom --- leaving the top edge open for turning. I trimmed all of the excess fabric, clipped the points, and turned the facing inside out. Minimal pressing was required to smooth out the points, and the top edge was serged closed.
I have had many requests for this item to be included in our section for embroidery blanks! Coming soon -- a bright winter white, and an antique shade of off-white.
