Here are the ones that will make it into the quilt though…
This one is a vintage handkerchief which had a very pretty lace border. I folded the border in, added a few off-cuts of lace from vintage collars, then a little bit of embroidery.
This is a work in progress and I'm having great fun with it. The larger paisley motif, is made from a child's nightdress. The central circle is stuffed from behind (trapunto) to create a mound, which I've covered in chain stitch. Then, apart from a ribbed wheel for the smaller paisley, the rest of the stitching is good old Kantha. I do love running stitch!
