I know, your thinking, wow............Lyns made a cracking quilt!
And she hadn't let on that she was making one too,
...............well one like this anyway lol
Ermmmmm well with the onset of blummin chilly nights and having been browsing on Ebay...........I bought a 'vintage' one because.....
.......it occurred to me the other day, that I have been collecting cotton fabrics to make a couple of quilts for years and not got very far.
In fact my pivotal moment came when I realized much of the cottons I had bought, was bought when I worked in a smashing craft store......
which I left 11 years ago!!
So I think that gives you an idea how I can procrastinate...........abit lol
So I bid on a couple of quilts and won this supposedly vintage darlin' which has been machine stitched and hand quilted. No idea how old it is of course really but am not concerned because I like it and it has a lovely soft handle to it.
Anyway I was so thrilled that I won that quilt for £70 that I forgot about this one lol
They are both enormous covers and my bed is king size so you can see how generously sized the top one is, it hangs down both sides of the bed, and this second one is bigger!
This 2nd may become my shroud, hopefully for use much later on!
This too is machine stitched but hand quilted and says its believed to be from the 1970s.
I wouldn't be surprised if I've been duped and they are not as 'vintage' as they might be ( 2 separate sellers ) but what the hell, I quite like them and they will get used anyway.
And since I've still not selected a pattern for my own quilt to be.... least I won't freeze before it's made!
