What materials did you use? 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 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.

So sweet and feminine! It looks and sounds like you have a very precious girly-girl. Love the salvaging of Grandma's tablecloth. Such a touching remembrance for your daughter.

Thank you. After 3 boys, it is fun to have a girly-girl Princess! I thought saving the tablecloth was nice too--especially since grandma passed before meeting my sweetie. They both loved pink and I know grandma would treasure our Princess.
