Vintage Embroider Quilt

Hello all!  I mentioned in my last post that I had been working on another project.  Well, this is it!  :)  My grandmother passed away last July, and I was given a "ton" of her embroidery pieces and crocheted doilies.  Some of the material was too rotten to do much with, but I managed to salvage a lot of good pieces of embroidery work.  I turned them into this small quilt.  It's nothing fancy...just a tied quilt...but the pieces in it are very special.

And here is the reverse side. I used a vintage sheet I had purchased at Good Will a while back.

A few closeups of some of the embroidery work.

Thought I'd also share a couple spring flower pictures.  Not much blooming right now, but these grape hyacinths are looking good, as well as the daffodils.  :)

One more pic before I go. I went to town with Laura and two of the grandkids Saturday night.  We went to Good Will, and I found this "hoot".  :)

Take care and enjoy your day!


  1. What a perfect way to commemorate your grandmother! Bravo to you! Your flowers are pretty and a cute owl too. I'm finishing up some business work so I can go to the beach for a week! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. Beautiful quilt! I have a lot of handkerchiefs that I would like to make a quilt with.
