Vintage Quilt Finds!

WOW! I had so many blog visitors yesterday! I'm always popular on the first of the month when I drop a new BOM pattern - 

I finished the project I've been working on (to be shown in the next issue of Hexie Love) yesterday morning. It's time to start laying out and designing the next issue! BUT....it was a beautiful day, actually HOT at 82 degrees F, and I felt like I deserved to get out of the house for a bit. I headed to Opelika to a local antique mall. What was I looking for? Anything quilty, of course! And anything that would be a good piece for styling photographs for the magazine. I found lots of good stuff that came home with me.



This is a vintage table topper. So pretty and I love the colors.


Vintage quilt blocks! This is a set of 6 blocks...

and another set of six blocks. These are all 30's fabrics (not reproductions). I'm not sure what I'll do with them yet, but I've got a few ideas brewing.


My favorite find was the hexagon basket with a lid - is that not adorable?! I also came home with a piece of cutter quilt and a vintage scissor box. It was a great shopping day!

Today I'll work on the magazine pages - always a fun and creative activity.

  2. Love all your finds! Especially the vintage tablecloth. I have recently acquired a few of my grandma's tablecloths. They are so precious to me. I'll be watching to see what you do with yours.
