Type of item: Home Decor
Leftover fabrics from my stash and some additional fabrics my little daughter chose at the store. The hand-embroidered butterflies were from a tattered tablecloth that I couldn't let grandpa throw out (eventhough it had holes and stains) so I salvaged the embroidery work, cleaned it, stabilized it and sewed it into quilt blocks.
What was your inspiration?
Grandma's old tablecloth, my daughter's love of pink, pink, more pink---okay and some purple too--and Disney princesses.
What are you most proud of?
Saving the important parts of grandma's handwork.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Hand-wash the old linens first then stablize all embroidery knots with fray-check so it doesn't come apart.
