OLD LINENS QUILT

I have been steadily working along on my old linens quilt as my back allows.  Hand embellishing is no problem but bending over the counter or over the sewing machine for too long is what bothers me.  I have all but 1 of the 6 machine stitched down and have embellished 4 of them.  I took pictures of 2 of the finished ones.  The centre panels have been finished and sewn together.  Once the 6 are finished they will be sewn down 3 to a side of the centre panels.

Those linens look like the stash I have in my drawer. I bought a box off eBay a few years ago and am steadily working through them. So pretty!

Lovely vintage linens you are stitching together to make a quilt. I am sorry your back is not well. That is why I have such a tall custom work table...I cannot bend over with my back in pain. Healing Energy...

It looks great Freda! I hope your back is soon feeling up to snuff - I know how must it can hurt and get in the way of the creativity we enjoy so much. Take care of you!

I love how you've put these together. I've tried several times and mine just look a mess!
