Check out my new favorite vintage quilt, which I discovered as a tattered, dirty cast-off in a local consignment shop.
Minuses: it was pretty stained. the background muslin is pretty deteriorated.
Pluses: It was whole. No patches completely deteriorated. It was scrap patchwork – my favorite kind of quilt. The hand-quilting was abundant and meticulously done. The material is worn to a velvety softness. And it was cheap.
So I brought it home.
And after a good washing, a line dry, and the mending of a few seams, I find it’s MORE than good enough.
In fact, I’m starting to understand how Peanuts’ Linus feels.
