1926 Flowers

This is a muslin top that was embroidered and the date on the border is 1926, so that’s when this design was produced. I have some embroidered pillow cases from my grandmother and she would have been the right age to make this. I had thought that it was unfinished because it didn’t have any backing or borders. However, I took a closer look and realized that the top and bottom had been carefully turned and stitched. So, whoever made it intended it to be used like this. I’ll leave it that way.
