Vintage Childs Chenille Bedspread - HARD TO FIND!!
We've had many Chenille spreads for adult beds, but never one for a crib or childs bed! This wonderful example features a mother hen leading 2 chicks down a curved path (railroad tracks??) in pink and blue Chenille on bright white cotton. It measures 64" x 44" and was PROFESSIONALLY HAND LAUNDERED with no rips, tears, stains or odors. CLEAN & ADORABLE!!
Antique Red & White Bow Tie Quilt Top
This c 1910 Bow Tie quilt top, is HAND PIECED using scrap bag cotton fabrics including several reds (including prints and solids) for most of the bow ties, a brown dot on tan for the 12 others, and a black dot on creamy white shirting print for the background. It measures 102" x 78" and has some storage spots and a couple split seams. There is also one 1" square repair on the background. Use it (hemmed) "as is" for a table or bed topper, or finish it into a beautiful quilt.
Vintage Pastel Lone Star Quilt
This 1950's Lone Star quilt is HAND PIECED in pastel cotton and cotton blend fabrics with a bright white cotton for the background. Measuring 91" x 81", it has a thin polyester batting, a hand applied binding, and a bright white back. HAND QUILTED with outline quilting on the star pieces, and elongated diamonds (like the star pieces) on the background and border @ 7 to 8 stitches per inch. PROFESSIONALLY HAND LAUNDERED, we found no rips, tears, or odors, but a turquoise fabric used in the star (next to the green) was not colorfast and is light & mottled, and there's a couple light spots near the border. A BRIGHT, EASY CARE QUILT!!!

Bow Tie Reversible Doll Quilt
Such a cutie, this 1920's Bow Tie quilt is also reversible! One side has 2 HAND PIECED blocks 5" square with solid gold, and red, gold & blue stripes on white for the bow ties, and a medium blue solid for the other 2 blocks. (Notice that one bow tie has a 4 patch center!) The reverse side has one bow tie block 3-3/4" square in the same colors, surrounded by medium blue. The quilt measures just 10-1/2" x 9", with a binding made using a buttonhole stitch in yellow thread. HAND QUILTED where the 4 blocks meet @ 8 stitches per inch. We find no rips, tears or odors, just light soiling overall ~ ADORABLE!!
Crazy Quilt Sampler Top
From the 1890's comes this partially finished HAND PIECED Crazy Quilt top, made of cotton scrap bag fabrics, including one Hole in the Barn Door block! Each piece is surrounded by HAND EMBROIDERED fancy work in multiple colors of cotton embroidery floss. The top measures 88" x 76", and has a back made from many scraps of cotton fabrics. The top is both HAND QUILTED with meandering basting-type quilting, and hand tied with cotton floss. There is some damage (fabric splits) and staining to the back only, but we found no rips, tears, stains or odors on the front. Could easily be finished as a quilt, or used as a decorator piece either hanging on a wall or draped over a balcony rail. VERY GRAPHIC!!
