Airing the Quilts....

it has turned out to be a beautiful sunny day here on the farm ~

...perfect for airing out some of my old quilts!


below are some pics of my finished little quilt:

I like the way it turned out, do you? and here are two quilts that I bought while 'junkin' on Saturday...
this one, below is a Monkey Wrench design... I LOVE LOVE the early blue & brown calico's and how time has aged her....
this one, below, is a Star variation, almost with Log Cabin work on the stars, and again thee best early blue calico.
both quilts are tattered and loved... soft and faded and perfect. ~::~ and what else should we do on such a pleasant day, ...when all of our chores are done?
...nap in the warmth of the sun, of course!!!


...wishing you all a loverly afternoon ~


Blessings from the Farm... Lori

Love your little quilt. Monkey wrench is my favorite quilt block, so have to say that one is my absolute fav. Lovely finds.

I love how your little quilt turned out.
I saw an old quilt in the thrift store, but have no idea about aging a quilt and prices. This one had damage and maybe the 30's from the look of the prints.

Love your quilts...new and old! I just blogged a couple days ago about some OLD blocks my Mom gave to me. I hope that if/when I get them finished, I do them justice!
