Sold. I'm out looking for more but in the meantime head to the shop for more lovely things at www.handmadeandvintage.co.uk
This beautiful square panel is completely handsewn. Each lace type panel and each cutwork and embroidery square has been hand worked and then joined to its neighbour. The whole piece has then been edged with a pulled thread border that has roses worked into the pattern.
It measures 50cm x 50cm and is in good vintage condition. There are two or three pulled threads but these don't detract from the piece and could be mended. There is a sewn on name tag on the back - an old laundry marker I think.
This panel would make a lovely centre to a quilt or a cushion front perhaps.It would also look pretty on a small table.
