Crewel embroidery…

ca 023

The crewel embroidery on this fabric is phenomenal. My friend Jayne found this fabric at the Alameda Flea Market. She originally planned to use it to recover a chair but is now thinking of making it into a quilt/throw. I wish the photos had turned out better, the don’t do justice to the color or the detail of the work.
