I have so many inherited embroidered family linens over 115 years old that I have kept....dresser scarves, hand towels, hankies, luncheon/dinner/cocktail napkins, pillowcases, even tablecloths....and never use.

I went to a quilt show locally about ten years ago and a woman had three quilts like this. Beautiful, absolutely beautiful and on my list to make.

Your quilts are beautiful. I really like the quilt using the embroidered items. This summer I took a class from Kelly Cline called Vintage Quilting on using doilies, embroidered works, tea towels, ect. It got me excited for using antique needlework items for quilting, we used our domestic machines and rulers that she has developed. Class was really fun but way to short, I'm hoping she comes back to teach more. Time to hit the antique stores in the town where I live, you have inspired me.

What a great idea! Recently a gentleman donated 2 full boxes of doilies (he had recently lost his wife) and we have been putting them on our white elephant table a few at a time. Think I'll run to the store and buy up the lot!!!!
