Throwback Thursday ~ Gather

Since I have secret sewing going on, I have nothing to share today. So here is a finish from a few years ago. It remains a favorite of mine. Enjoy this throwback post.

This is a most satisfying finish!

I started the appliqué last summer while traveling. The verse is John 6:12. After Jesus had fed the 5,000, he told his disciples to gather up the fragments so nothing would be wasted.

The background of the front is random scraps of muslin. I also used muslin on the back.

I initially wanted a red binding, but I ran out. I am really pleased with this tan. It frames the top without competing.

You can really see the different muslins in this photo.

I’m enjoying this in my family room for the time being.

Have a great day!

    I love this, Katy. Did you freehand the lettering? Such a meaningful statement, even as we scrappers use up all we have at hand. :o)

  2. This is another favorite! Fun to see it again!
