Colonial Lady Quilt

I found this quilt at a thriftshop.
I paid $2.00 for it. 
I liked the colour and pattern.

It's for a single bed,
I have it on a double bed here
for the photo.

It's a vintage quilt,
 in very good condition, some
 of the topstitching needs repair.

I've never quilted, but it has always 
been on my bucket list to learn. 

Beautiful pattern and detail

The fabric is still in good condition.
Nothing torn,  only some topstitching to repair.

The topstitching is a "blanket stitch"
not difficult to do. 

A lot of work has gone into this quilt.
What lovely stitching! and it makes
me wonder, who it kept warm.
I'm happy to be the one who
rescued this beautiful quilt.  

A friend who is a quilter,
loaned me a large loop, 
and other supplies, and
gave me some pointers on quilting.

Maybe after repairing this quilt,
I'll make a new one.

Thanks for your visit xo
