Simple Motif on Vintage Hankie, Quilted
I do love a vintage hankie! They can be super fast and fun. I am working on a larger vintage piece, so this was an experimental piece before working on the REAL customer linen. I’ll hope to show that in a few weeks.
I used a simple motif from the computer on my long arm. I drive a Handi Quilter Fusion with Pro Stitcher, which I adore! This design is in the Pro Stitcher library, created by Kim Brunner. After the computer stitched out the motif, I went back in and free motion filled all the open areas.
Here is the hankie right after I had stitched the motif. I also had the computer stitch the rays in the awesome satin backing!
A few close shots. I used a double batting of 80/20 and 100% wool, Hobbs. I also love Glide thread. This is the color Cream, which works well for most vintage linens. I love the sheen of Glide!
Above are the differences between a real scribble and the lower, being a micro stipple. Yup, tiny no matter how you see it!
One more look at those rays. They might be my favorite part! Have a fabulous weekend!
