A photo from my article on the history of filet crochet in the March/April 2013 issue of PieceWork made the cover of the magazine. It shows a table topper made by my husband’s great grandmother, Elsie Norman, Wellman, Iowa, circa 1920. The piece is about 36″ diameter. It has a square linen center. The piece is made round by adding a crescent of filet crochet to each side. The design in the filet crochet is the same design used in the colored cross stitch embroidery. This issue of PieceWork is now on sale if you would like to read the entire article.
