Well, you knew it had to come to an end sometime didn't you. And as I've been quilting really slow these days it at least gave me something to share! But I saved the best for last! I wanted to share some awesome antique quilts I saw in the antique store. Well ok, somewere not so awesome! But I'll share them anyway.
Both of the "quilts" above were amazing. They were all beaded. they were not large but so heavy I could hardly lift them. I can't remember now but I think they were made in Thailand (see how fast my memory goes). I wish the pictures were a bit better of these, they were really interesting to look at.
I saw this rag rug underneath a cabinet - I was afraid to touch it and pull it out! I wasn't sure what I might find!
And I found this silk quilt. I'm sorry but it was UGLY! Even my friend who has made a ton of things with old silk ties agreed that it was "not so pretty".
And I LOVED this star quilt. I so wanted this one. But it was really pricey for how worn it was. There were many spots worn bare.
And look at this basket quilt - loved the colors!
And I found some awesome string quilts - I just knew Bonnie and all the heartstring girls would love these!
But the best one I saw was an old quilt top. Oh this one was so me! I wanted it so bad, but my trip had just started and I just couldn't bring myself to spend that much money on just a top. But I have the pic on my cell phone background now and drool over it every day. Who knows, I may go down again next month and see if it is still there! Look at the fabrics! Truely AWESOME!
