The Quilt festival going on over at Park City Girl's blog this week has had me thinking about quilts non-stop. I posted about my a favorite quilt of mine on the below post if you would like to take a look at that one.
Anyway, with all the quilts on display, naturally I decided to show my vintage estate sale find quilt today. I found this recently at a local estate sale. I have loved this pattern forever, but never have I come across a quilt with this design that I could afford. Imagine my delight at discovering the price tag on this wonderful quilt was only $20.00. Pure excitement was more like it! I snatched this baby up and held onto it for dear life until I got to the check out!
This lovely old quilt has some wonderful fabrics used in the piece work. It was a beautiful sunny day yesterday when I decided to take some pictures of my quilt. I took it outdoors and placed it in the grass for the photos. I think it showcases the colors that are in the fabrics so much better than being indoors.
Just look at the cute little houses, they are so cute. I like how striped fabric was used for the houses themselves, with a floral or another pattern for the rooftops.
I love the color combination of these blocks. If the person who pieced this quilt together had stayed with this color combination, this would have been the cutest "Christmas Houses" quilt ever. The colors just scream Christmas time to me!
This is the back side, and the binding on the quilt. It is hand pieced and quilted. A true treasure.
There are a few imperfections in this quilt, with a few worn spots here and there. Does it bother me? No, not in the least. I really am not big on perfection in things I love...just charm.
And on this sunny day here in Ft. Worth, there was plenty of smiles happening as I looked lovingly at my new quilt and photographing all the cute little houses pieced together......speaking of sun....speaking of sunny days....speaking of.....well this......
This photo needs a name.......go ahead....give it your best shot!
While I was busy taking a picture or two of my quilt in my backyard on the soft cool grass, Sophie decided to take in a little sun herself. This is what I saw when I turned around and looked towards the patio. Mind you, she did not chose to lay on the quilt...which I am sure would have been fine...but no, I found her like this on the patio. And I need a name for this photo.
Come on....don't be shy, give it your best shot! Just leave your entry for my Name this Photo Contest with your comment to this post to be entered! Oh...I almost forgot about telling you what the prize is for coming up with the most suited name for the photo.
The winner will receive a 1-year subscription to Family Circle Magazine. I can not wait to see what you all come up with for best describing all this photo is...or is not.
Thank you for stopping by for Vintage Thingie Thursday! Please visit everyone participating and look at all the wonderful vintage treasures! If you have something you would like to share, just link in below...we would love to have you.
