Yesterday was a beautiful day.
A perfect day to air out a vintage quilt.
I don't have a clothes line, and the grass was a bit damp.
So, I thought I would drape this beauty over a few chairs.
It was fun to gaze outside, and see the timeless colors.
These, hand sewn yo-yo's, are about the size of a quarter. It appears to me,
they were stitched together as little 4 patches, of color. Probably in the 1930's
I bought this several years ago, from a friend, who is an antique dealer.
She has found some great things for me over the years! (Thank's Sam!)
I was once told that lying a musty quilt in the grass,
will help to take the smell away. (Something to do with Chlorophyll)
I have been a little afraid to wash this quilt.
Without a backing, and only a few stitches holding each yo-yo
in place, it's a risk I am not willing to take.
I love the center.
And the edge, makes my heart sing.
Well, this girl stole the show!
'thanks, mom, for putting out this great quilt for my Sunday nap' said Ruby.
