show off friday~~~vintage linens

Show Off Friday

I am determined to finish some of my UFO/WIP that I have piling up in my sewing room.
One that I am fond of, but haven't known what to do with, is this vintage linen piece that I
framed with some Amy Butler fabric that is from her Gypsy Caravan line(the original).

I was inspired this week by Heather's quilt shown here on her blog called Crafting.
I love the way she off centered the postage stamp square in her quilt.  I think I will do that
with some of my UFO/WIP pieces.  I like the modern look it gives to a traditional design.

I plan to use Kona white or snow, but I may audition a few solid colors to make certain
that the white is the best choice.

Now it is your turn to link up something~~~~ what do you have for

Show Off Friday

There are no rules for this link up party....this is just the place to show off projects you are working on!
