Alison has made this quilt top from layers of vintage linen.
First an old linen table cloth with a touch of blue, next a pillow case followed by an oval doyley with a small round doyley centred in the middle. I must try and remember to take photos before I start. This is the best I can do as I just start stitching:
First I pebbled the centre:
Then I micro stippled close around the embroidery on the oval doyley:
Hard to photograph this white on white project! What I hoped to achieve by this is a trapunto look. Then I moved on out to a slightly bigger pattern:
I think it’s looking very good, I’m getting the look I want to achieve.
When I move into the next area the lace on the oval doyley will be left unstitched. I think this is going to look very pretty. I cant wait to stitch more on this one.
