Over a year ago I was contacted by a woman who had a few vintage quilts that she didn't want. They came out of her mother's house about 1968. (so the story goes) We wrote back and forth a little, then all was quiet for about a year, then she wrote again, saying she had found our correspondence and the quilts were still in the exact place they were a year ago! LOL I asked her whee she lived and as it turns out she was living just a few miles from whee I was going to be staying in North Seattle! Serendipity I would say! Michelle and I met her and her husband at their home and she gave me a total of 5 quilts.
I was so surprised to see this one, because the photo she had sent me looked orange and blue, not blue and pink!
This is a long skinny quilt, looks to be made for a twin bed.
The woman seemed to think it was a crib quilt, but maybe she was guessing because it was blue and pink. My guess on the age is 1920-1930's
It certainly isn't heirloom quilting, but definitely very nice.
The border is pretty sweet and makes it fit the Humble Quilt style I love so much.
Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing the other quilts I got from her.
Have a lovely day!
