Motif #25

The edging I'm working on to make a little centerpiece for my kitchen table is almost done.  I haven't really made many edgings, and wanted to try combining tatting with quilting, and then see what the best way to add the edging is.  I am just going to make it a simple circle, and I'm just fiddling with it until I get it to what seems like a reasonable size.  

This is the "Lacey Edging" from A Christmas Angel and Other Tatting Patterns by Monica Hahn.  I like this one because it has a simple repeat that I can do while watching TV, or on my lunch break at work, without much serious concentration.

The edging is going to be Motif #25 of my 25-Motif Challenge.  Wow!  I was worried I wouldn't get 25 done in one year, and it actually only took 8 months. It's true - the challenge helps one to see how much we really DO get done in one year.  I will end my challenge for now, but I definitely plan to do it a second time!


  1. Congratulations on finishing the challenge! Your edging is beautiful!

  2. Beautiful! And congratulations on finishing the challenge. I'm only halfway there...

  3. The edging looks lovely in gray and very simple to do as well.


Thanks for your thoughts - I read and appreciate every one!
