Another “Society Silk” Rose!

If you follow my blog you know I am obsessed by quilting vintage linens. My favorite being “silk society” embroideries. This particular piece was very old and fragile, most likely late 1800’s or early 1900’s.

I used two layers of batting and began by outlining around the original embroidery.

The initial stitching is a bit overwhelming with two batting layers! I almost regretted the layers, that puff is scary as a quilter!! Once I started quilting it calmed down and became something spectacular very quickly.

The final piece is stunning if I do say so myself! I quilted to the outer edge and plan to cut away the backing, mat and frame. One more piece of gorgeous handwork, salvaged!!

    That poof would have scared me too! Your end results are lovely, I'm glad you didn't let the thickness deter you.
