Another Vintage Quilt

Daughter #3 recently sent a text from an estate sale and asked if I was interested in a quilt for $2. Um, yeah! It had a certain folk art charm that I couldn’t resist.

My first thought was to take it apart and remake it as I’m not a fan of tied quilts.

You can see above the great disparity of black communities sizes! I like Vedder this cowboy fabric in the border.

How about that massive self binding?

I love the backing fabric.

I think I am going to enjoy this one as is. It adds a great pop of color to me sewing room.

Have a great day!

    Be still my heart! What is there about funky, folksy looking quilts that totally melt my heart! Wonderful that you’re going to enjoy this quilt as it though taking it apart would have resulted in something fun too. What a fabulous find from a daughter that obviously loves her mama.:)

  2. I couldn’t agree more. I love it just as it is!

    I’ve always loved the nosegay block and made one years ago, which convinced me I didn’t want to make a whole quilt with that block. One was enough. That quilter had perseverance if nothing else.
