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 is a particularly interesting one of a kind piece. The embroidery is exquisitly rendered in crossstiching as well as outline embroidery. The maker was an expert embroiderer! The piece of embroidery was purchased in a little antique store along the Oregon coast as an unfinished piece-raw edges and all! I trimmed off the raw edges, and then bordered it with a lovely teal solid and a print depicting antique ships and lighthouses. I outline-quilted the picture to give it some depth and outlined quilted the borders as well.
All the fabrics used are 100% cotton and the batting is Warm and Natural batting-a nice study batting that is 80% cotton. While I can't be sure of the fiber content of the embroidered piece, it looks and feels like a nice thick cotton muslin.
What a great gift for a someone who love ships! The piece is a small wallhanging measuring 20"x21".
