a bit of vintage...
We have a fair number of old quilts around here, and each are treasured. But when I rediscovered this one, I was especially delighted. It used to be at the foot of my parents' bed, but has been put away for a long time. When it came out (for a sleepover needing extra blankets), I snatched it up.
This was made in 1976 as a wedding gift for my parents, by the ladies at the church we went to ages ago. Some of the scraps were from my mom's old clothes, but most were simply extra fabrics that they women brought together for this. It's wonderful.
There are lots of different fabrics to look over...some of them more worn than others.
And I love the stitching around the edge.
Yay for finds like this! I think I'll be hanging onto this for a long time...
