A Vintage Linen In Progress

This is a small project I’m doing for a friend. She will be doing a giveaway next month and I’ll be sure to report back and show the final piece when she’s ready! You may want to follow Stephanie Palmer at Late Night Quilter 🙂

When I say small, I mean the linen was tiny! All of 5″ square. I almost didn’t choose this piece, but I’m glad I did. This was a drawn threadwork coaster. I used a satin backing and placed the linen in the middle.

I used my rulers for the piano key border before I began the inside work.

I stitched an inside line, then pinned back the outer edge so I could finish the border.

Once I have the border finished, I start the work on the inside. I also put a shiny little piece of costume fabric underneath the linen. It’s amazing what a tiny bit of sparkle will do for one of these pieces!

I’ll add a few beads, mat and frame this piece. I’ll be sure to show you the whole thing when I can! Until then, happy quilting!

    This is gorgeous. Can you tell me — did you quilt the circles in the border freehand? If so, do you have any tips as to how to get them so round and perfect? Many thanks for sharing your beautiful work.

      Thanks Diane! They are freehand. My first circles are usually not so perfect, but once I get going and have the rhythm, they become more uniform. Lots of practice too! Doodle, O’s, that helps too!
