The Good Day

As promised, more vintage towel madness. I had been trying to find a way to make some art for art's sake for a few months when I found this at the Old Lady Thrift Store:


Another excellent Wert linen towel. I fell in love with it. I love the colors, the design. the general mid century vibe.
So I thought, why not enhance it with some embroidery thread...


And then I thought, why not quilt it...


And then I thought bind it off with some vintage fabric....

And by the time I was done, I had this wall quilt.

I love it.
 It's hanging in my bedroom to greet me with "Have a Good Day" when I get up.
More to come...
