I stopped by the antique store in Falls Church, VA to look at the linens and sewing supplies. On the floor I found a box filled with pieces of old lace. I dumped it out and looked at each piece. I heard a very loud voice in my head say you could use this for your next art quilt challenge project Art and Old Lace. I took the whole box to the counter and asked if it was sold by the piece or the whole box since nothing had a price on it.
It was my lucky day the lady behind the counter said I can price each piece you want or you can buy the whole box. I stood at the counter going through the box once more thinking how could I possible choose just a few pieces. I looked up and she knew that the whole box was going home with me. So now I have tons of lace for the project and have to come up with an idea. I also found this photo of two girls in lace dresses that I bought for inspiration.
