New Vintage Tops!

Recently, someone on Instagram posted a couple vintage tops she had found while at an antique shop. She didn’t want them for herself even though they were a great deal. I commented that I wished I lived closer. Then she offered to pick them up for me. Quilters are the best! Here is the first.

It has some really fun prints in it. And I love the teal/peach colors!

Here’s a look at the hand stitching on the back.

This is the second top.

It needs a few small repairs and there are some stains on the background fabrics, but overall, it is in nice shape.

Those triangles are tiny!

Here’s the hand stitching on this one.

I’m so pleased I was able to purchase these from across the country with the help of a quilty friend!

Have a great day!

    I’ve always loved both of these designs and they seem to be in really good shape. Seven Sisters has especially nice colors. I’m assuming you will be hand quilting them when your wrists improve.
