gone crazy for vintage

found my very first "rescue quilt" on ebay for $45 "buy it now"

all wrinkled w a few blood stains and  unfinished edges but so very amazing xoxo

completely hand sewn by an 89 year old sparta il. lady who recently went into a nursing home....not much to know but i am happy to have this much... xoxox


i used mary ellen's wonder spray and pressed all the raw edges 1/4 "...no problem at all since it was so beautifully pieced xoxooxox
and i have started appliquing a small border with an almost perfect match of blue/grey solid by freespirit....found it at my favorite keepsake cottage shop

i have so many favorites in this wonderful quilt....

please don't be jealous ....there are many more quilt tops out there just waiting to be rescued xoxoxo
sooo ... do i have time for this new found vintage obsession??? no , i dooo not but it seems to have taken on a wonderful , unstoppable life of it's own....i have another wonderful find coming in the mail soon....and i will just have to stay off ebay for awhile cuz it is very , very dangerous and it is making nick a bit nervous....xoxox pam
