Some plans were concrete, some days we slept in and decided what to do after coffee....lots of relaxing.
We love to antique and I thought I'd share a few pictures of some old quilts. Some shops didn't allow photos. I always ask.
This log cabin was really jazzed up with a border.
I should have taken a photo of the coverlet next to it too!
I was having too much fun shopping. I found quite a few things in this shop I'll share in a future post.
|2" finished HST. Block set on point.|
The hand quilting on this red and white was very pretty. Made of 16 HST's set on point. How simple is that!
It's quite striking.
I wonder why I didn't get this one? I left it for someone else, I can't have them all.
The shops were pretty busy, which was good to see.
We had one small detour on a back road to Sauder's in Denver PA, otherwise the area is thriving.
This nine patch was purchased while I was shopping. I know it went to someone who LOVES it. It was fun to talk to the new owner.
I was going to lay it out and take a picture of the variety of fabrics in the nine patches.
The backing is a 40's floral so the top was quilted later in its life.
Note the yellow tag - all the PA shops had them noting the item is used and not new. If you're into regulations you can read about them HERE.
Simple and sweet old quilts!
I did bring hand sewing because looking at quilts always makes me want to stitch.
MANY more pictures to share...stay tuned. What do you think of the log cabin border?
I'm off to catch up on laundry.
Have a great week
