Here's how I framed the "Aunt Verdi's Porch" piece. By changing the design, I mananged to make the piece into an odd size, one for which I couldn't buy a ready- made frame that would fit. So I got the idea to make a strip of CQing to add to the side. Choosing colors from the quilt in the picture, I pieced and embroidered, then added a tea-dyed strip of lace. This will be entered in the fair later this month.

What a great idea, Janet! That CQ sets the stitching off nicely as well as solves your size issue. I hope you win a ribbon!

Love this idea! I have so many things that do not fit into standard frames. I'm sure you will get a blue ribbon at the fair.
