I've always wanted to try a page with this quilted look, so when my sister decided to visit, I took advantage of her sewing skills and put her to work with me hand stitching all these squares.
Once the background has been completed it took a bit of thinking as what to do next. The doily broke up the black nicely, then luckily I managed to find this gorgeous photo of my grandmother.
I've used a mixture of flowers from Retail Girl, Dusty Attic, Petaloo & I am Roses along with feathers & pearls. The scrabble tiles, although not strictly black & white, match the vintage photo.
