Another flat fold finish


I did another flat fold finish this afternoon.  I am happier with this one.  I took the time to sew the trim on rather than gluing (thanks for the idea sis!) and I was much happier with the result.  

This is the piece I stitched by Cross Eyed Cricket from the retreat we attended at The Silver Needle.
This is a photo so you can see the fabric I used.
I just bought this fabric, with this piece in mind.  I really didn't have any Halloween themed fabrics in my stash.  But a trip to the quilt store in LeClaire, Iowa took care of that...

It took nearly all of the fat quarter of the orange polka dot fabric for the flat fold.  But I will have some other choices on hand for another time.  Needless to say, I've been able to leave my finishing materials out on the dining room table for a few days.  It helps when you don't have to take the time to round up all the supplies.  

I should keep my momentum going and continue on with more finishing...but this will probably be it for this weekend.  Mike will be home Sunday and Monday, plus I think the kids are coming over Sunday, so that means my mess will be put away for awhile.  I will most likely be putting my dining room table to use for feeding the herd!  

Happy Stitching, friends!
