I was in Bend, Oregon earlier this week. There’s an antique mall in Redmond that I always try to visit when I’m in the area, because I usually find something quilt-y there that I can’t resist. I wasn’t disappointed.
The best find was this quilt.
It has great 1930′s fabrics for the flowers and a true 1930′s dark green for the leaves.
I love the delicate way they are connected with the embroidery. There’s almost an Art Nouveau feel to it.
I also came home with a few other things, like this guy cut from an old quilt. I just love his daisy britches!
And I can never resist a batch of butterfly blocks.
I’m not sure why I was tempted by this Double Wedding Ring piece, but it came home with me, too.
Lastly, this embroidered splash was too cute to resist.
