New Quilt

Mark's Great Grandmother embroidered a set of coasters in the 1930s. Maybe earlier.  Mark's mother gave them to me.  They are lovely pieces of linen. I did not want to use them as coasters, the embroidery was just too pretty. So they sat in a box.  That did no one any good.  I needed to do something with them.   Finally it came to me what to do.

I need to crop the picture a little and I will as soon as I can!

A detail of the embroidery.  It was amazing to me that all twelve are done so beautifully.
