I ❤ crazy quilting & embroidery . . . Elizabeth Parkhurst Williams Crazy Quilt (1884-90) Velvet Leaves- A very rare BEAUTY. I love the overall pastel impression & softness of most tones. Although there are many vibrant jewel tones as well. All the loving artistic needlework embroidery of Mary Beatrice. Special dates, initials, musical notes on a scale, blessings symbols, cupid’s hearts, roses, tulips, sunbursts, ferns & so many other interesting floral & geometric stitches.
#9 "Bonnet Girl Relatives & Friends" Fran $6.50. Fran is holding borderie perse flowers. Her bonnet covers embroidery floss hair. The shadow appliqué technique found in the Ladies Day Out book was used to do the butterflies.
