Debra: Vintage Linens and Raw Edge Yardage

I'm sewing raw edge yardage on my longarm; inserting some vintage linen pieces for interest. Might become living room pillows!

I love the looks of this. It's really dynamic. Do you have plans for this "yardage?"

What fun yardage! Will be looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

What interesting snippets you've shown. I like the looks of this. How big is it?

Yesterday when I started, I had planned to sew this into pillow covers to sell at a Mother's Day Trunk Show to which I have been invited. By dinner I wanted the (to become) pillow covers for myself. This morning I think I can part with them for the Trunk show. Who knows what I will think by this evening!

Whatever I decide, they need to be finished and in the mail by Friday!

45" x several yards--maybe 3?

Yes, I've been thinking of you as I have stitched!

I culled a bunch of linens thinking I would donate them. They've shown up in this yardage. I really cannot let go of anything "useful". It's a disease, I tell you!!

Pillows sound great to me! I've finally found someone to use my odds and ends of yarn. Hurrah!

This yardage looks beautifully vintage, and made me think of pillows on an old porch swing, and carefree summer days!

Loving this project Debra.
The lace, the trims, the raw edges, the vintage fabrics - all comes together in harmony.
Will be interesting to see exactly what this yardage becomes in its moment of glory.
