Finished this peice for now.

I included the measure and the pen to show how small a piece it really is.
The top is sewn with silk. 
It jut fits into a plastic sleeve and is in a folder now... though I really like it now, and am wonderfig what to do with it...Maybe I should bind it..or something.

Here is the back - .. I am even happy with that! 
First time I think I got the tension right.
The bobbin had Aurofil 50 wt cotton.

I came accross - while trying to tidy up my VERY messy studio - the information about the Fabrico pens :) 
Told me it didnt require heat setting :)
Could have missed that test bit after all!

Great Job Joan! So....... are you really working on that "messy workroom" or just working on more ?? LOL Have a great day tomorrow. Hugs Sharm (who hopes to get more done of the baby quilt tomorrow)

I like the variety of backgrounds you used. I've tried the circles and I find I don't have the patience for them at the size I was working. I see you made all different sizes of them. Maybe I'll try that. Very nice McTavishing, too!

Such a pretty piece Joan! I had to laugh, reading instructions AFTER doing the ironing is exactly how my hubby handles anything new LOL.

Joan! Wonderful....you could "bind" it, but it looks to be 8x10- you could frame it! Sandy

Joanne said...

I love the way you use a variety of background fillers.♥

Absolutely beautiful. By all means bind it or frame it so it can be on display!

What Comes Next? said...

gorgeous! all your fillers are so small and perfect - I think framing it and getting it out on display is in order!

Exquisite! Reminds me of an elaborate wedding cake! Skip organizing the "messy" workroom...you'll never find a thing! How's that for permission to quilt? ;-)

Julia said...

Wow, Joan it is stunning..I did not realize it was that small..
Great work..Julia ♥

Beautiful Joan!

Ivory Spring said...

This is fabulous.... of course you should bind it. This beautiful piece should not be left in the binder where no one gets to walk by to admire it!!!
