Details, Details – Colourful Quilt

December 3, 2011 by admin

Another quick post – it’s been a busy week!  I just wanted to share a couple shots of my favourite quilt.  I’ve always loved quilts and last summer Sara and I scored big, finding this beauty for $20 at the Aberfoyle Antique Market.

Can you believe we got this for $20!?!?  I just absolutely love the faded colours, the vintage patterns and prints and the honey-comb shaped quilting pieces.  It’s just the quintessential old farm-house-type quilt and I love it.  I always see and notice new colour combos on it and get inspired again and again.  Every time I look at it, or snuggle under it, I just smile, knowing how perfectly ‘us’ it is (and how cheaply we bought it!).

Hope you like it too!

    Big score Micheal, and wonderful colors. We have many quilts here and I am also a quilter and have been to and had many a quilting Bee. A huge amount of work goes into one as well as a lot of love. Glad you enjoy yours. Nancy
