novelty heirloom

 This little project is a vintage linen napkin that was hand dyed.  I used wool scraps and purl cotton threads to create the freeform design.  The embroidery was done using threads Sharon had given me from a vintage sewing basket.

Below is another heirloom piece I had started for this challenge, but unfortunately I waited too long to quilt it after marking it with my air erase marker.  

You can find additional information on my blog here.


  1. Not only is the piece beautiful, but your photos are amazing. Thanks for sharing! Sue Pelland

  2. Love your work Kathy and I can spot it a mile away. Wish I could see it up close and in person....although your photos are great. Miss you. Oxo Susan
