Hitchin' Days

I have been burning the midnight oil, these early days of September, consumed with a project.

My lovely little granddaughter is not so little any more, and will be marrying her best friend Daniel, in just two weeks.
She has plans for an outdoor wedding, rustic decorations, good Southern food, and maybe a little shindiggin' under the September night sky.

So back to the project part....
I wanted to make her some wedding bunting, to help make a festive mood.  Oftentimes it is hung inside the food tent, or used to decorate the tables, we're not sure yet where it will be used, maybe just hanging from tree to tree, as this example shows.
 
 
I chose vintage-patterned fabrics
 

 
 
 
 
This being my last one to cut with the pinking shears.
A beautiful print named "Coming up Roses" from the Olivia Audi collection.

 
Next step, to sew all the triangle flags and  ribbon inside the bias tape.
Seven hundred of them ......
I may be absent for awhile .
