Teneriffe Lace

I LOVE these unique pieces of handwork! I found this one at D. Palma & Co. Mercantile last weekend and I just had to get it on the frame!

This style of lace is called Teneriffe. I sent a quick note to Mary Corbet, Needle ‘N Thread, who was a doll to identify this for me. I’m always concerned with correctly identifying handwork. I visited YouTube to see how this is done and WOW! Amazing!

The lace piece is about 10″ square. It’s so delicate, which intrigued me when I saw it.  I did my best to press and give it a good starch. Those circle laces were rather loose, so they took a bit of moving, stretching and starching, to get them to behave!

My favorite background these days is satin! On this particular piece I used a double batting of Hobbs 80/20 on the bottom and 100% Hobbs Wool on top. You’ll see this gives some great loft to this piece. I stitched around the perimeter of the inside square first.

Next, I stitched around the outside edge, outlining around all of the lace circles. My hand gives you an idea of size.

Once I have all the outlining and edges stitched down, I start the design process.

I added a “piano key” border with my longarm ruler.

Beads and rhinestones add the finishing touch!

    Always look forward to seeing your work. It’s an amazement once again, the contrasting fabrics, bringing together the old and the ‘shining new’ without loosing the integrity of the piece, thanks again !!

      How very honoring and lovely and meticulous and creative. Your imaginative stitchery and embellishments would have been appreciated by de Dillmont and Riego and Lace Fairy alike. Thank you for keeping the originals intact.

    Kelly, this shows how simple quilting can produce a big wow! Thank you again for your trip up to Maine. I can’t wait to receive my templates you recommended and put them to use on some of the linens I’ve been collecting. Love my new Kelly Cline rulers.

    Absolutely gorgeous what you have done to the piece. The ability to picture the outcome is amazing. Please tell me though, what is that foot you are using? Does it belong to a long arm machine? Your work is truly inspiring.

      Hi Cleo, thanks! Yes, the foot is the standard foot on a longarm machine.
