On our recent vacation, we spent a day at my husband’s Aunt’s wonderful home. While we were there she let me photograph three vintage quilts that she has. Fortunately she’s visited my blog so she didn’t think I was a total weirdo for asking if I could pull quilts outside and take pictures of them.
This quilt was the ‘newest’ of the three vintage quilts. (I’ll share the others in the near future.) She received this one as a wedding gift in the 1970’s. I was first drawn to it because I’m such a fan of red, but then it was fun to look closer at all the vintage fabrics.
I think I would love reprints of a lot of these. The dark blue on the left reminds me of Denyse Schmidt’s recent Fairgrounds collection.
Love this print too.
I think it would be fun to recreate this quilt with all kinds of scrappy fabrics. It really is wild.
And here is where this quilt lives. No wonder it’s such a happy quilt.
