Another coil bowl project

Are ya sick of these yet? I hope not....in addition to this I made two more bowls last night.....


As I stated in my last post, I'm totally stuck on these coil bowls. This one is my f-a-v-o-r-i-t-e! When I read the book, I couldn't grasp why anyone would want to make a fabric plate....until I saw the page with the appliqued plate. My mind immedieately went to the 100ft of red, white and blue wrapped line I had waiting for a project. I instantly knew what I was going to do. This platter has a very shallow lip ( about 1") around the edge. It is hard to see in the picture. I wanted it to stand on a plate stand so I firmed it up with fabric stiffener. To say I love this would be a major understatement. Even DH likes this one. If you are wondering....this took 100' of clothesline and 7, no it's not a typo, 7 bobbins (including embroidery) I used the large spool Coat's & Clark quilting thread.

Love this "plate"! I want to make an oval rug for my new kitchen. Wonder how much thread that will take?!! :)

Oh my gosh!!! I can hardly stand it! I love that so much! I am a freak for Americana stuff. How I would love to learn to coil, I have so much fabric, boxes of scraps. I am going to add you to my favorites, so everyone can see that delight for the eyes, Jane
