I finished the little needlekeep with the vintage quilt scrap, avocado dyed fabric and lace a little while ago. It is very plain inside, just a couple of felt pages and in the middle a little vintage wool scrap with blanket stitch surround. I think I got it in a button box in France, but I am not sure. Arrgghh, old age is a bummer. The quilt scrap is really thick, so I couldn't really do too much with it. I used the avocado dyed fabric for binding the top and bottom, but used a lovely old net fragment for the sides so that you can still see the thick layers of wadding inside the quilt. It ties shut with a little bit of sari silk ribbon. It was such a pleasure doing it all by hand.

Completely beautiful Liz!! Taking just a few 'scraps' of things and creating such beautiful results is wonderful; and esp. all by hand friend~ Thank you for sharing. I like the focal point lace and flower; but also notice the sweet little side button! A pretty accent~ Hugs, karen o (I want to practice my blanket stitch now : )
