Beautiful, I just adore embroidery everything, cloths, tablecloths, girls dresses, such as the ones you're sharing. I like embroidery by hand myself. Have a nice night and a great Sunday dear Marlis. XO FABBY

Hi! Isn't that crazy quilt wonderful? Would you believe that my uncle used to make them for his wife! He was a macho kind of guy, but loved piecing the odd shapes together ... He'd piece the quilt and she would embroider it and finish it. They are probably quilting in Heaven!

Thanks for sharing ... and bringing back that memory.
