Welcome to my quilting journal. I enjoy expressing myself through fiber. Tiny pieces of fabric, vintage quilt blocks combined with hand stitches create my art. Keeping this journal helps me document my thoughts and progress. So glad you could join me, Happy Quilting.

Estate Sale Find
I don't know the patterns name, but I love the colors and placement. I stumbled on to this full size quilt at an Estate Sale last weekend. The sale was outside and really cold. I stayed around for about 3 hours to bid on this quilt and so glad I did. The quilt is very old with a feed sack back. I believe some of the blocks are feed sack, too. There are no stains or tears with just a small about the fading on the back. Just a great vintage quilt to add to my collection. I love to think of the stories these old quilts can tell. The people they comforted through good times and bad. There is love in every stitch. Happy Quilting!
