A wee hold up

The quilting has gone ok on the silk antependium - not perfect, but I wasn't shooting for perfect.  The scheme has been revised a bit and I've decided not to add multiple lines of cross hatching in the centre, but rather a single diagonal line.  In reality, there's only  2" of space there so this allows a bit of dimension to the surface.
As much as I was hoping to have this finished up by the end of the week, I have run short of fabric for the binding so will need a trip out of town to find some more white silk. (Imagine: an excuse to buy fabric...and as you will see in the next post, I`ve already added to my stash this week)


  1. How scrumptious is that! Do't forget, too, that it will be seen from a distance in church, no one will be peering at it from three inches away - and it will be a beautiful backdrop to a happy occasion.

  2. Beautiful!! You always do such a wonderful job of designing, creating and quilting!

  3. A feast of feathers Karen. This is verry nice
