Vintage Embroidered Linen and crochet throw

A beautiful blanket or throw, crafted from a carefully chosen vintage tablecloth and printed cottons, combined with crochet in white, lilac and green.

Squares featuring embroidered motifs were cut from a vintage tablecloth. The central square is new embroidery, worked in matching threads on a blank portion of the cloth. Additional squares were cut from printed cottons - some vintage. Each fabric square was blanket stitched to a backing of new fleece fabric to provide a 'blanket weight' and cosy feel. By working into the blanket stitches, each square panel was given a border of crochet using white, lilac and green yarns.These panels were crocheted together.
Several rounds of crochet, and a scalloped edging in white, complete the blanket.
This blanket represents more than 60 hours of work! It would look lovely as a coverlet for a single bed and could be used as a topper on a standard double - perhaps over a lovely vintage 'counterpane'.

Small repairs have been made to the vintage embroidery using matching threads. I have pre-washed this item on a cool wool cycle and then dried it (as flat as possible) in a warm place - this worked well and I would recommend the same approach.
