I know it has been a long hot summer and it is still hot as blazes outside and it isn't exactly the time of year we use a quilt, but I found a nice old quilt on our little getaway a couple of weeks ago that I want to share. You saw some of it in this post as a back drop for an ironstone sugar bowl found on the same trip.
I was immediately drawn to the vivid blue colors of this quilt. It is old and tattered, but that is fine with me.
As I opened the quilt up and looked at it I found many different fabrics used. This one little section has black squares.
Here is some kind of a patch job.
The other side is this pretty pinkish and gold paisley print. Doesn't go with the blue squares at all, but yet it does.
I was thinking about different spots that I can use it. Love it draped on the sofa in the sun room.
May use it here when the weather gets cooler.
The grain sack pillow cover in the middle is from my sponsor Sutton Place Designs. Ann does fabulous work.
I like it on the bed in the nautical guest room, too.
See how the squares on this side are a different color. I love that.
For now it will sit here folded up on top of the other vintage quilt made by Mr. Savvy's mom many many years ago. It is very tattered and worn, too.
Just the way I like them.
So there are several places it will work. Not sure where I will use it.
It may move from here to there like anything else in my house does. lol
Enjoy the weekend and you don't want to miss my guest poster on Friday for the "My Favorite Room" series.
