One of the things I love to do while on vacation is to visit antique stores and look for hand embroidered linens. I recently started repurposing these collected hand embroideries in a series of quilts. These are one if a kind items, as the embroidered pieces are vintage purchases.
This lovely hand embroidery is of a waterlily in full bloom framed by cattails. The whole picture is framed by a hand embroidered circluar border. I added a border of rose fabric, then a checkerboard border, and finished with a light rose-pink outer border.
This piece is a small wallhanging. It measures 23"x23".
The fabrics I use are 100% cotton prints. I can't be sure of the fiber content of the embroidered panel, although it looks and feels like cotton muslin. The embroidery thread looks like a nice pearl cotton. The quilt has Warm and Natural batting inside, and is machine quilted. I outlined quilted the waterlily and the other motifs in the picture and around the borders.
Wouldn't this make a nice wallhanging in a softly feminine bedroom?
