Vintage stitching

Vintage ticking is one of my preferred fabrics. It evokes those Colonial interiors - the authentic ones - that I've always found beautiful in their simplicity - utilitarian with artistic flourishes like folk art and handmade rugs.

 I started this yesterday. Every single item of this little quilt is antique or vintage. Except the thread!


 And finished it today.

  1. How lovely for me to pop in here and see a new blog post. That is really beautiful! I love vintage items, I sometimes wish they could talk and I could know the history behind them.
