Sewing for Kristin

Beautiful bride to be, Kristin with gift I wrapped. I enjoy creating a uniquely wrapped present. I used her save the date and enlarged some of the images.
I made 12 napkins and a table runner for Kristin's wedding shower. I used my serger to edge the napkins. Thread in the upper looper is a cotton pearl thread made in Japan. The table runner is quilted, batting is Warm and Natural cotton and I used my 1950's Singer Featherweight sewing machine to freeform quilt.
Her every day dishes are white and she has some green ceramic plates as accents. The colors in her kitchen are reds and yellows. The fabrics are woven 100% cotton Kaffe Fassett.

Close up of the edging, I just love my serger, which is an 8 thread Baby Lock Evolution. Enjoyed making this for Kristin and wish her the best in her marriage to Jered.
