My DH took this afternoon off from work so we could go up to Aiken, SC and visit some antique shops. This was my first sign he had no idea what to get me for Christmas.
Anyway, we found this Scrappy Sugarloaf/Arrowhead quilt that we both liked (trust me that hardly ever happens!) It had some wonderful fabrics in it...I would buy yards of this blue with the faint stripe and the cheddar flower if I found it at a shop today!
The quilting is done in a diamond pattern with off white thread and very even. In places the thread looks darker but I think that may be dye migration from the brown fabrics. The back is plain muslin. There are a few discolorations on the muslin but you have to look close to see them. The binding is back to front. There is no wear on the front of the quilt and only a few spots where the fabric has faded or the dye migrated.
