Here's a churn dash:
it was priced at $125 and labeled for a double bed. Here's a star quilt:
$125 also for a double bed. I know nothing about aging quilts, but some of the fabrics in these vintage quilts are just not ones I would reach for, yet they all combine to make the most charming quilts.
And here's a scrappy tulip quilt:
I think this one is more recent, but still drew my attention:
And this one:
TINY hexagons. I should have added something for comparison, but those hexagons are no larger than a dime. Maybe it's the hand piecing and quilting that adds such charm:
The stitches are far from perfect, yet it all adds up to perfection. Something to remember when I rip something out because the points don't match perfectly.
This label was on the back:
But I know this quilt dates back much further than 2000. Makes me think someone must have given this heirloom quilt as a gift in 2000 and it makes me sad to see it hanging here. I so wanted to bring it home and whisper to it's maker that it was going to spend the rest of it's days being treasured and loved. I am going to go back and ask the owners for more information. Surely someone knows something.
I do not need to start bring home vintage quilts. Lord knows I have quilts coming out of my ears as is. Hubby might think I've gone over the cliff. Some folks take in stray animals. I could start bringing home abandoned quilts. I've done the critter thing. I could easily follow suit with the quilts and convince DH by telling him that quilts don't need to be fed. Think he'll buy it?
Did I buy anything? Yes. A rolling pin and a bread dough bowl. 😁
