Great find at the Antique Market

It finally feels like spring today!  The robins are chirping and it is nice enough outside to wear a light jacket!

I decided to do a little window shopping at a local antique market, and found this little lovely.

Antique appliqué

I was able to haggle a bit and got a 25% discount- it is a cute hand applique flower with machine stitched border and quilting.  I (GASP) laundered it to try to remove some yellowing in the white background and freshen it up.  I’m happy to say t made it through the ordeal quite well- no fraying or loose seams!

You can see the amount of stitching from this view of the back.   Really a cute find- I’d love to find out if anyone has an idea about the age or value on this one- let me know!
