Vintage 9 Patch

Thank you for all the sweet comments on my little doll bed! Many of you said it was likely a canopy bed. I feel certain you are right!

At the same sale, I picked up this vintage quilt top.

It has some lovely fabrics!

And some issues.

It actually has quite a few frayed seams that need to be fixed. It was handpieced and it appears to have been washed. This is never a good thing deal with a vintage top as the seams often fray beyond repair.

Now, what to do with it? Hmmmm…..gonna have to think on that one.

Have a great day!

    Glad to see you rescuing old tops and blocks. I also love doing this. Seeing your recent posts makes me realize that I need to pull some out and finish them up.

    My response to, “What will you do with it?” is “I’m going to own it.” What a lovely addition to your collection!
