If you love vintage, you probably have/and-or love doilies! I have a sentimental place in my heart for doilies, because I watched my aunt crochet them and my grandmother used them in her home. They were originally used as toppers for a chest of drawers, and sometimes even used to cover the divan arms to keep them from soiling or to cover a worn area. I find myself admiring them, still, in the second hand store. This one I couldn't resist and is available in my shop.
This quilt was made up of 10 to 12 inch squares, each with a doily attached in the center. Instead of the traditional three layers of a quilt the patchwork top, the batting and the backing, this quilt called for a fourth layer of organdy. It was laid over the top of the doilies, then the whole thing was quilted with the quilting circling the doilies. I'd like to try this! It's a neat way to preserve the past with a creative future!
