Beautiful quilts! Very old and new!
My in-laws (whom I adore) just arrived in town from Minnesota and with them they brought the beautiful new quilt that my ma-in-law whipped up from fabrics I picked nearly 3 years ago. The reason the project began was that I am nearly obsessed with this vintage quilt that my mama handed down to me. It is worn and very tattered, but it steals a bit of my heart every time I look at it.
The old beauty is so tattered that it is no longer used for snuggling,
instead it is used to adorn the table when I throw together a fantastic picnic party or such...
Close up of the new quilt. I really tried to capture a
feeling of old with the fabric I selected.
Old beauty. I love the worn out feel of the fabrics,
just not in love with the actual holes and tatters. Sad face.
Old and new...and both just cute as pie! As soon as Logan makes her way into a
'big girl bed', this treasure will grace her bed.
