A Vintage Linen Table Topper

I have some vintage linens, laces and gloves from my Mom and Grandmother. I’m putting some of them together to make a table topper. Here are some photos of it in progess:

This is a sheer square placed on a light salmon colored cotton. I am putting wide lace trim around the edge. 

I’ve got handkerchiefs that my Grandmother embroidered. I’m placing these in the corners and then gloves will be sewn on them. 

I’ve been machine quilting this piece for a while. Once the machine quilting is done I will hand sew the gloves to the top. Here are some close ups of the quilting. 

I plan to sew the gloves on at a retreat in April. The quilting is done so I’m putting this project away until April. I’ll show it again once it’s finished. 

It is a little more feminine style than I usually do, but I wanted to make something with these inherited gems. 

Thanks for visiting my blog!
