Hi Gals, I sewed this out yesterday, it's from OSED.


It's a little candle corset and has little toggles that fit into the loop on the other end of the corset.

It's been made in the 7x11 hoop and has 64,386 stitches Love Chris

(I had a little battery operated tea-light sitting inside it when I took the picture)

Hi Laura, stop it you're making me blush!!! Yes, this was the quilt I made a few years ago. My new one I've just finished last year is at the Quilter's being done. She is doing each square for me individually, a lot more expensive, but it won't detract from all the stitching in the designs. Love Chris

OK, you go for it. I see you've got some cold snowy weather outside your home!!

I'm sitting in my back room, it's 26C outside, and about 75% humidity, much warmer than your freezing temperatures!! Love Chris

Hi Tonya, yes, they look effective, this one is actually on a glass candle holder, which has the little tea light in it. Love Chris

Love the fact that it wraps around a candle holder. I tried finding the design yesterday and failed...

Love it. A great design. I think having the toggles/lupes makes the assembly so much easier. Looks as if you caught the FSL bug.

Hi Angie, yes, it's great, but I also like the ones where you put a ribbon through the back of it. I've always love FSL and Applique! Love Chris

Beautiful, but I never trust my machine to sew out that many stitches . I will I just get to nervous to do it.

Oh! I don't believe that of you Jenne, your work is exceptional and I'm sure your machine would handle it. Love Chris

I love FSL!!! I think the common name here where I live is a candle wrap. Whatever the name may be, it is beautiful. I hope you make more of them.
