Just a couple of pieces left in the series of fancywork I've inherited. Here, I have another thread crochet piece from my late great-aunt.
I actually hadn't noticed that it was made with two different blues until I'd uploaded the photos! It's a lot less obvious in person.
This is a small table cloth made out of square motifs joined together with a chain mesh. It's 6 squares by 7 squares, with a narrow border, and measures about 42" x 36".
I love how the square motifs together create a secondary diamond pattern.
Here's a closer look at one of the corner squares. The squares are basically filet crochet worked in the round.
Like the filet crochet runner I wrote about last time, this piece is in fantastic condition. There is no damage of any kind that I can find. There are a few loose threads visible on the back, where the sewn in tail ends have worked themselves loose. It's remarkably soft and has an amazing drape to it. I actually had a hard time using the piano bench to take the photos, as it kept slithering off the edge. *L*
This is another of my favorite pieces.
