Heading to rural areas west of us, we went to a flea market. In the early morning sunrise we walked heavy dew in the grass down row after row of vendors.The smell of hot coffee and fresh picked produce lingered in the air. I found a few smalls and was so "in the moment" I didn't take any photos.
After breakfast in a small cafe we decided to visit a few antique shops - one in a large barn. I love barns! The old timber and construction techniques are fascinating.
This quilt was interesting to examine. Hand quilted, narrow back to front binding.
The red was unstable and had faded to a peachy-brown shade.
Note that orange block in the lower left corner.
