Throwback Thursday ~ More Closet Quilts

Here are a couple more quilts I found while cleaning closets this week. This first one was made while we lived in France in the late 90s. I purchased a small bundle of these Provencal fabrics from a quilt shop in Paris called Le Rouvray.

I machine quilted this on my 1955 Singer Model 201. I think the white fabric came from Ikea.

The next one started out as a vintage top purchased at a garage sale. I could not believe my luck when I found it at a price I could afford!

I hand quilted this. I just love this sashing fabric. See the little duck blowing bubbles?

I quilted it simply and used a vintage purple fabric for the binding.

I have more closets to clean. I wonder what else I will find!

    What a wonderful find..love the little duck fabric! I am reading your blog from our hotel room in Chicago this morning. We are here for our “grand son in law’s” graduation from medical school.
    I did bring a small hand quilting project with me..not sure if I will get to it though. Too much fun visiting.

  2. Oh I love both. I wish we could get good Provencal fabrics here. I bought some 20 years ago in St. Bart’s and have not had anything as nice since. The vintage top is adorable. I adore juvenile novelty fabrics and this one is a winner. Happy to see you hand quilted it, it is lovely!

  3. I can’t decide which of these two sweet quilts I like best. They’re both fabulous!
