Vintage Linen Bedcover

My mother-in-law gave me this bed cover that had been in a bag in her basement for decades.  I brought it home, washed it and laid it over my longarm to dry.   What a mistake that was!  The linen and the crochet lace dried differently and there was a terrible amount of fullness.  This changed my wholecloth design drastically.

I used a light floral backing, Hobbs 80/20 batting, a light grey liner and the linen on top of all that.  You can see in one of the pics I uploaded how horrible the bottom border was stretched out of shape.  In the next photo you can see how I tamed it.

I decided to frame in the middle and run various channels to look like a Victorian corset.  Feathers and lacy fillers finished it off. 

This quilt won viewer's choice at the Oakland County Quilt Guild in April 2016.

This quilt is for sale - serious inquiries only please.
