I went to a local estate sale this week because the photos online showed a stuffed sewing and craft room. It was "stuffed" but not just with stuff but with people...boy was it a crowded sale!
I did however get a twin size quilt pieced in a pattern I had never seen before. Now if I was going to make a sailboat quilt (again) this would be the last pattern I would choose!
Talk about making something difficult! Anyway, I posted the quilt on a vintage and antique facebook site and within a few hours one of the members had the info I needed on this quilt...
I did give the quilt a good bath when it got home...it had a few stains and really didn't smell so good. Glad to report stains are gone and it smells fine! Fabric are all solids: medium green, watermelon pink, and an off white. The back is off-white and the binding is front to back. There is some bunching in the batting. I'm estimating mid-1940's.
I also got some vintage packages of needles. These are tricky to buy since so many reproductions were done and sold in stores like Joannes but since one of the packets is printed with "made in occupied Japan" I'm pretty sure I'm good on these.
