I kept circling back and back to look at the quilt in more detail.
Pieced by Lynn Miller, quilted by Mary Vaneecke.
Lynn really had a captivating idea. She wrote: "Dresser scarves and embroidered linens are mostly forgotten items in a cedar chest. Even though I don't know who made each of these linens, I think they are all happy I have grouped them into one big happy family."
These are such sweet vintage embroidery patterns!
In fact, I would love to stitch every single one of them.
I've been looking on line, and found Aunt Martha's hot iron transfers from Colonial Patterns, but most of their designs seem to be kittens or birds.
Does anyone have a source for the patterns like these for dogs, deer or owls?
Lynn even fussy cut little sections to add into the quilt.
A wonderful heirloom that can now be passed on generation to generation.
The Tree of Life theme is prevalent in so many forms of art work.
