Vintage Table Topper

This is a vintage table topper I found recently in an antique shop in Russell, KS,  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
