You know all those wonderful vintage hand towels, bridge tablecloths, and table runners that were lovingly hand embroidered 50 or more years ago? Well, this is a way to honor the makers, enjoy the beauty, and have a useful bed cover.
Assembly was not very complicated once the very involved process of choosing and planning was accomplished.
There are seven “Days of the Week” towels with red birds, seven towels with sun bonnet girls with kittens, and many different basket designs.
To make all the blocks a uniform size, each vintage linen piece was cut down and cotton prints were added around it to make a 12 inch finished block. Lots of measuring to make sure everything fit.
30 blocks were sewn together with 1.25″ pale green sashing and a 14″ border.
