Embroidered Quilt Top FInish

 As I showed here, a friend asked me to quilt this beautiful embroidered top. She had no request and custom work on this, I admittedly, am too inexperienced to attempt.

Taking pictures of this one proved to be difficult. I didn't want to take it outside, because it's all white and not mine. (smiles) The pictures don't do it justice...but I do know it's truly going to beautify any room it ends up it.

I'm pleased with the all over design of ivy and little birds. Ivy is always a wonderful accent to my own rose gardens and well, who can resist a little bird amongst a garden of roses. 
With smiles,
Val:)

  14. Oh, so delicately beautiful! The quilting embellishes it very nicely, really complements the stitchery. Now in addition to looking for vintage pieced tops to quilt, I want to find a vintage embroidery one to do too!
