an unusual quilt

An unusual 1930s quilt with eau de nile sashing and backing and deep rose pink feathered wreath quilting was my mending project this week at the cabin.

I rebound two ends and mended a tear, soaked it in a bucket, hung it out and then rinsed it with a garden hose.

Need not have bothered rinsing as it was such a stormy, gusty, rainy week. The quilt was filthy when it arrived with lots of marks , but it sure is clean now.

and, another blanket label to add to my collection.


  1. That quilt is gorgeous.
    Tell me that your parcel arrived.I sent 2 parcels on the same day and the one to UK didnt get there please tell me yours did.

  2. oh I love the simple lines of that one!!♥

  3. It's beautiful! You can see from the photos the quality--and I love the color! Hanging in the fresh air does wonders for fresh laundry :-)

  4. what a beautiful quilt!
