Embroidery Week with backing


Today we added the backing and quilted our embroidery piece.  I brought my backing fabric to the front and secured with fusible tape.  I then did a running stitch with decorative thread around three sides.  I added the fringe to to last edge and stitched in place with the same decorative thread used for the running stitch.  I hand quilted with a metallic thread.  I did not trim the piece but instead went with the uneven edges that resulted from the original embroidery stitches.  Tomorrow we are learning how to display our finished piece.

The colors in this are so bright and fun. Great job with all the stitching...makes me want to get of the computer and go sew. However, since, I'm into scrapbooks right now, I guess I'd better stick with it. About my MoHawk Stuntman and your soon to be Eight Grand Gal....Does she like to Fish and Jump out of Trees? If so, I bet he'd think she was the hottest chick around. He really does like girls and is very sweet and nice to them.
