I just received a Blog Comment from Karen asking about quilting around embroidery. When I receive comments directly from the blogger it comes to me as a "no reply" and I can't get back to you! If you have questions please write out your email address in the content of your letter and then I can answer your questions.
Karen was asking how I deal with quilting when the linen has satin stitch embroidery and if I quilt right over the top of it. It's important to remember that your quilting is there to honor the work of the original maker and to make HER look good! Therefore my quilting designs always go right up to any existing handwork and never over the top. It gives your piece dimension as it looks like the original embroidery is on "top" and your quilting goes "underneath". I'll be showing more of that detail in future blogs. Cindy
