a quilt



A rather ordinary,heavy quilt that did not have much going for it but some interesting 1950s fabrics and a large tear. 


But what's this? Under the tear it appears there is another old  quilt. Is this a piece of 19th century indigo?


Alas, no. After many hours unpicking,  a depression era 'grandmothers garden' emerged.


It is in such bad shape that even I can not salvage anything, 


except some strips of fabric for re-binding and patching and a big mess on our deck. ( good thing I worked  outside)


It breaks my heart to throw it out, I wish I know an artist who would like to use it in a piece of work.

  1. There simply HAS to be a use for this!!! It's far too precious to simply throw away. Are there enough good bits that could be turned into something like pincushions? Or pillows?

  2. What a shame but nobody can say you didn't try.
