My collection of old linens and laces are from family and friends who know I collect. I always wanted to use these wonderful treasures so I picked a Damask Linen table napkin and layered it with batting and backing. While taking a road trip to my visit my grandchildren, I used the time in the car to quilt the asterisk design in neutral embroidery floss over the surface. The edges of the napkin were raveling so I used the old crocheted lace to bind the edges. I had bought a stamped quilt top with women fused on it from a friend who wanted to have less in her stash of fabrics. I painted a spiral, glued on the ladies, laid cream colored tulle and hand stitched around it. I felt it needed energy to keep the motion of the spiral going so I added green fused lines to give the piece a dynamic feel.
