There is just something about a vintage quilt that I love. I deeply admire the old fashioned applique with tons of quilting, but I also love the simplicity of quilts that warmed the house and home. This quilt I picked up at the local thrift store. I may have paid a dollar for it. I'm sure it was meant to go in a dog house or to soak up an oily spill in the garage. I'm so glad I snagged it!!
My daughter has it now and uses it to stay warm. (One of a few quilts that she has.) Unless I'm buying an heirloom, I want my quilts and textiles to be used, washed and loved. I have yet to have a quilt fall apart in the washing machine.
More vintage quilts to come!
