This is a vintage table topper I found recently in an antique shop in Russell, KS, http://www.dpalmaco.com/ It's a beautiful shop with incredibly reasonable prices. A nice stop along I-70 if you need that halfway break!
I loved the crochet edging, which is why I spent the whopping $2!
And I decided the middle was way too white so I added a tiny line of black hand stitching to make it pop!
The corners were original embroidery. I did a heavy stipple to make the corners and small embroidered flowers pop. Then added glass beads for the finishing touch.
And wa-la, a beautiful new table or wall piece. This will go into our annual quilt shows silent auction for mini quilts. If you're in the area, April 5 and 6 at Crown Toyota in Lawrence, KS. See our website for more details http://www.kawvalleyquiltersguild.org/quilt-show-2014.html.
