Just wanted to share my favorite new flea market rescue. I love EVERYTHING about this quilt! The design, the colors, the texture and depth, even the "tatteredness" of it all. It has so much life and personality!
Part of me always feels sad when I find a wonderful quilt like this one because I feel like the family of the maker should be enjoying and cherishing it and passing it down from generation to generation. It is such a shame that it finds itself in a flea market stall.
The other part of me is literally giddy that I stumbled across it and can make a new home for it along with the rest of its "friends" in my collection. I always feel like I am getting away with some great secret when I find one of these beauties for pennies of what I think it should cost. Sometimes I have to literally keep myself from smiling when the vendor tells me $50 or $75 dollars and just say "I'll take it" quietly and walk away without skipping down the aisle!
Just thought I would share.
