Good morning. Here is the latest in my adaptation of your awesome design, BFC 1409, Oriental Cranes. I have had the background fabric in my stash half way to forever knowing someday I would find the perfect use for it. Obviously your design was it. I did some simple quilting on the backgroud fabric before I did the embroidery and after I did some design placement with a template. Then once the design was finished I outlined stitched the design for a little more definition.. Thanks so much for all you do. Until next time, happy stitching!
Bonsai!!! It’s just such a fun word to say, and stitch. Here’s my latest wall hanging from your wonderful designs. As you can see, the tree in the bowl with the flowers is a combo of two of your designs. It turned out well, however, it took awhile to do since it had 50 color changes! Hope all is well and, again, thanks for the designs.
Your wall hanging is absolutely beautiful Laura! Thank you. Suz
Hugette has made a beautiful rendition of An Oriental Afternoon. The pieced blocks are a perfect border around the scene. I’m going to remember this because it is a fantastic way to make use of small pieces of fabric that are too good to throw away! Great Project Hugette!
Thought you might like to see what I did with your wonderful designs. Thank you so much for all the effort you put in to your digitizing. What you can’t see here is the label I put on the back that acknowledges Sally King as artist, BFC Creations as digitizer and myself as stitcher. Thanks again.
Marilynn and I were talking and I asked if she had any photos of her work I could post. I was so surprised and thrilled when she sent me these.
In her words:
This is a small sample of the many BFC Designs I’ve done. I give away or sell about 80% of the designs I’ve done over the years. I’ve recommended BFC to lots of others with my same obsession. Keep digitizing please! Marilynn
It’s going to take me awhile to get all the links for the sets!!!
Thank you Marilynn for sharing so much of your work.
I got two of these Geisha panels years and years ago from E-Quilter online, and just recently decided to do something with one of them. Can’t see it in the pic, but I outlined most of the wisteria, flowers, stream and the Geishas and with matching threads. Then I cross-hatched the black borders and then hand stitched all the Geisha heads and the warriors. I also used black batting. Decided since it “could” be reversible I made tabs and used a bamboo plant stake to hang it from.
I’m envious sunny!!!! I got that same panel way back and mine has not been stitched into anything yet. This is a beautiful use for it! I like the balance between the individual designs and the large panel.
“THOUGHT YOU MIGHT ENJOY THIS PICTURE OF YOUR DESIGNS SURROUNDED BY KONA BAY KOI FISH. THE BLUE CHINESE COIN FABRIC WAS USED ON THE BACK. THE PIECE WAS QUILTED WITH METALLIC THREAD AND RHINESTONES WERE ADDED FOR THE EYES.
