My entry this time has a story to go with it. A few years ago I attended a small local yard/estate sale in the community where I worked. After loading my arms with a bundle of lovely vintage linens, I spotted a plastic zippered bag on the ground under a table, the kind of bag new blankets and other bed linens come in from the store. All I could see in the bag was a bundle of muslin and a bit of what looked to be a colorful vintage fabric. And this tag:
I worked on this off and on between other projects and completed it just before moving back to the east coast late last summer. Here is the finished quilt:
I love the finished quilt, the fabrics washed beautifully after it was completed, the bow-tie background fabric, a heavy cotton vintage tablecloth-type fabric, whitened considerably, making the bow-ties pop wonderfully.
Thanks for visiting, and good luck in finding your very own vintage yard sale treasure!
