This past weekend, two of my daughters, my future DIL and her mom traveled to Canton, Texas to the monthly Trade Days that began in the 1870's! Of course back then it was more of a farmer's market and today it is more of a flea market, but it was fun. One of my purposes this trip was to photograph quilts and post them because I have enjoyed seeing other bloggers do the same. There were several I would have loved to buy, but alas they were outside my budget!! But it was fun to look none the less.
This little cutie came home with me. It was a small piece that had been cut from an old quilt and then rebound. It measures about 24" X 36" and I thought it would make a great table topper (and it was only $5!!) I do think it is 50's fabric and I always love to give a home to "homeless" treasures!! The only worn block is the red one on the left.
This next quilt was my favorite of everything I saw. I was told it was a Civil War era quilt, and I thought it was wonderful. Of course priced out of my budget, but I love the big fan quilting and the stars are awesome - you know how I love stars!!! I think I might put making one like this on my "bucket list"!! It was very heavy and the quilting was done with dark blue thread.
Happy Fall Ya'll!!!!!
