I made this page for display at Regionals last year and completely forgot to post it. This was my first go at vintage.and my last post is inspired by his page. It’s been almost a year since I was game enough to have another go. I’ve used fabric to make the ‘frame’ and used a log cabin quilting look. No sewing, but it is a fairly fiddly technique.
The photo is of my wonderful Mother in Law, Lucy and my son Jake the day of his christening just over 16 years ago. I made his cutey pie outfit for the day and used a heirloom sewing technique called smocking and hand embroidered the little bunnies on the yoke. I just love this outfit – he looked so cute. Lucy is a very talented quilter so I wanted to make a page that represents an important part of her life.
