A good day at the Brickworks Farmers Market yesterday.
The 1930s dahlia applique quilt sold in the first 30 minutes. First time out after being listed on etsy for over 3 years. Each flower is a different color, my theory is it was made from a kit....perhaps bought from a newspaper or needlework magazine.
1950s 9 patch ( left) went to a little boy who badgered his mum for it....I called him my little shop-o-holic.
My theory on the feedsack Dresden Plate is that it was made for a county fair or competition. It had every thing! Piecing, applique, scalloped edge and fantastic, lavish hand stitching. No batting, so she could show off the 9 spi and it was square, all the better for hanging on a wall.
Made to impress, it sold later in the morning.
Usually vintage furs are hung at the back, for political reasons, but I was fed up with lugging them in and out.
Up front the jacket sold too.
Some 50s 60s beaded cardigans went plus quite a few bits and bobs from my " stuff for quilters" box.
But no estate linens sold.....
Ahh well, you can't
win them all.
