This is a piece I made for a friend. She had bought an old school desk and wanted something to go with it.
Of course that made me think of a schoolhouse and I was lucky enough to have a friend who had a great pattern, and she sent it to me. The pattern "Liberty" is from Fig Tree Quilts.
I had to change it, as usual;) I appliqued it onto prairie cloth and added the letters and alphabet.
I have to admit, it was hard working on the cloth, not as much surface area to sew into.
I used wools and a blanket stitch on the larger pieces and a whip stitch on the smaller ones.
The borders are done with wools from my stash of "as is" wools, as is the backing.
Tonight I was busy working on my newest punch pieces. The new ones will be going on ebay. I am a glutton for punishment, and thought I would try some sales again.
