My first draft of a kitchen towel using the pocket topper – top is a quilted black, the plaid is cloth, and the backing of the plaid is black terry cloth. The second one will be better – i make something for the Bell Choir at church every year for Christmas
Great idea jacqueline! I never thought of anything other than pockets. 🙂
Here’s the final product. We made one large one for ourselves and five of the smaller ones as Christmas gifts. The ‘framing’ material is a silk to set off the design , we wanted something more formal than the one you did.
I tried to post these pictures to the yahoo group, but it would only accept one picture. Then I saw your email with my name, but I haven’t seen it on the site. How do I post it?
I have really enjoyed making this large embroidery design. I am in a group who does machine embroidery. We choose to do the tree to practice precise positioning. Numerous people used this design on their own Christmas tree skirt. No two Christmas tree or tree skirts were alike cause each one of chose our background fabric (silk duponi), thread colors for tree, decorations on the embroidered tree, and other designs added to the Christmas tree skirt. It was fun doing and finished in plenty of time for Christmas.
Thank you for sending me the train set again. I have included 2 pictures of the skirts. The single skirt is the one I finished today for my nephew and the other one is his kids when they got their skirts last year. As you can see it was easier to fold the skirts in half so all 6 trains would show but not take up all of the den.
These are really gorgeous! Pop Butler would love them!!!! If you haven’t seen the pictures of Anne’s father, please go to the train set page. You can see him and read a little about him. He’s definitely part of history! Suz
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.
