Vintage Textiles


I have a huge love of vintage textiles. So much so that I have a small antique collection of quilts and vintage feed sacks. I just cannot pass up a good deal on a textile. In fact, I've even considered starting a blog just about vintage textiles.


Last weekend, I took a trip to one of my local Goodwill stores. I almost passed out when I saw this beauty in the blanket section for $4.99!!!


It's an old crazy quilt that has been hand embroidered and the quality is amazing! There are a few stains and places where the silk fabric has worn away but overall is in excellent condition. It has now a permanent spot over a chair in my bedroom where I can look at it daily and marvel about how much time it took to finish.

Here is the back of it where you can see all of the work involved. I'm in love!
