Once again, it's Vintage Thing Thursday..I really like this one. Most of the things I enjoy collecting are vintage. Whether it be crochet books....to hankies, from cookbooks to chicken scratch aprons... from quilt books to quilt blocks to vintage fabric.....and so on. I offer these today and to see what everyone else is offering, click of the Vintage Things Thursday button on the sidebar at top...It will take you to Colorado Lady and the other VTT's. Come join in, you'll have fun.
This little booklet is just too cute.. I've made one of the spoon dolls and started another. Alas, it's as far as I've gotten with that one. I always find more and more things to do..I wish for more hours in the day..
The little Nine Patches above is the simolest of all the quilt patterns.. When I found these and the other quilt patterns to follow, they were in the bottom of a large basket in an antique shop. I was so happy when I found them, I was almost happy dancing. I couldn't believe..I kept dragging out plastic bag after plastic bag. I've never counted all the pieces of each quilt pattern already cut out.. but I can tell you, I was a happy woman. There is plastic bag after bag that's been packaged up. Some, a lot actually, of the fabric pieces are feed/flour sack fabric and some is calico.I love looking at all the tiny pieces and wonder..who was the woman that sat and cut these out? What was she like? Did she love fabric the same way I do??..I really think she did, otherwise she would never have taken the time to cut these tiny pieces..
