Marlis Edging

This is another edging I made last fall.  Yes, it is similar to Kamryn because I had an idea in mind that I was working toward and Marlis was one of the first versions of that idea.  I’m not all that happy with it, though once I added the second row where it is attached the material I liked it a lot better.  The colors look pretty good with the runner material, though.After I had made Marlis and Kamryn – and a few other edgings – I saw a picture of an edging that is along the lines I originally was headed.  Fox over at tat-ology made ‘Gardenia’ by Iris Niebach, which if I’d seen it first I might have made it instead (I am sure I read about it on Fox’s blog when she posted about it, but I’ve slept a couple of times since then). Oh, well, this way meant I had to take a chance at figuring out just what it was I did wanted and if I could get there from where I was.

I had a lot of fun in the trying.

  1. Your edging looks great with that material!!! 🙂
    I love that material!!! I am a homemade cocoa-aholic. I usually make it at least once a day, but a lot of times twice a day even in the summer. 🙂

    1. Thank you. I was surprised by how well the edging colors went with this material. I originally was going to try to use green/white or red/white with it but they just didn't look right. As gray and cold as it is today I could really go for a cup of hot chocolate, too!

  2. Pretty pattern, that Marlis. I had to look up the Iris pattern… 2011 seems a decade or more away!

    When I saw what you were talking about I actually blushed. After all these years, I am still smarting from that time when Iris read me the riot act for crediting her design to Mary Koniir.

    The experience taught me the value of impeccable editing!

    It is a fabulous pattern. You would enjoy tatting Gardenis, I am certain. : )

    1. Thanks! I found your picture of Gardenis on Pinterest after I'd gotten far enough along I didn't want to change. I try hard to credit the designers, too, but it can be difficult sometimes.
      Thanks for being such a tatting inspiration.
