I always loved Quaker motifs and when I saw the Tarnished Gold P5 thread of Valdani Inc., I decided to try… I had already purchased the beautiful Boca Collection basket from Lantern Moon, the perfect linen fabric from R & R Reproductions.
The Black Dark 8113 from Valdani was perfect as well !
I found the lovely black scissors, thread winder and all the finishing materials…. Little by little the design came out.
Then I sent pictures of the motifs, samples of threads and fabrics to my friend Cecile Just Another Button Company.
She has made for me the most gorgeous pins and button, matching with my model.
I am so happy for the final result of My Quaker Style basket & Accessories!
