Nothing Fancy

This is my favorite summer quilt. Hands down. It is vintage but in good enough shape to use.


The Dresden Plate blocks are all hand pieced and the quilt is very nicely hand quilted.


This quilt is soft and the batting is thin. The blue centers and occasional red and white petals remind me a bit of the 4th of July.

What a vintage treasure--and it does seem to say "summer", both in color and thickness.

It's a beauty! These kinds of quilts are what inspired me to start quilting so many years ago. A real treasure for sure!!

1930's pastel quilts make me think of summers down the cape (cape cod) when you need a blanket at night...

The hand quilting is beautiful - and a fun assortment of fabrics. Love it with the blue pin stripe too!

Taryn, the quilt IS very summery. I really like thinner softer quilts. It means they have been loved.
