Never Ending Project




This is my never ending project. I started it almost two years ago and I figure it will take me 2 more years to complete it. It's unusual in that it is done in rows, not rounds. There are 4 rows to the pattern. I start with row 2, do row 3 & 4 then work row 1, joining into the rest of the rows. It will eventually be 42" X 27" when completed. It is an altar cloth.

  • Terry,
    This is so beautiful!! what a lot of little medallions to deal with. Don't think I would have nerve to start something that large. I would get tired of it LOL.
    Great work

  • Wow!!! It sure takes a lot of determination to start, continue and finish such a large project. I had wanted to do a shawl only, but haven't have the guts to start it!

  • It's going to be beautiful! I've just starting planning (trying to figure out a pattern) a tablecloth. This will be encouragement for me that eventually I will finish. :)

  • It's beautiful! How do you sew it together?

  • Bless your heart. I know the feeling. LOL
    I'm assuming you tat each motif as you go? or do you tat a run and then add them. Mine has to be tatted one motif at a time; although, Sharon B sent me an idea how to do it in blocks ~ haven't tried it as yet.
    This piece is just beautiful.
    hugs, BJ
