Vintage quilt panel find...... it's a beauty !

Hello and good morning.

Spring is very much in the air I believe and the delicate flowers that this time of year bring are blooming in my garden.  Some days it is warmer and others it is bitter with rain and wind, still those little delicate flowers prevail.....

When I went to the vintage fair and flea market in February I found a wonderful panel of old quilt.  It is hand quilted and the most beautiful colours...... This will have to remain as a panel, It would be a sacrifice to chop this up for anything.  It is a panel of beauty and I am not sure yet what will happen to it.  It could of course,  be a panel on a cushion ( but people leaning on it it would never do) but I think it will be framed and have some embellishments to make it into a picture...... watch this space.  The first thing today is to wash this beautiful panel and get it nice and clean.  I will keep you up to date on the progress........

The delicate creams and dark pinks are stunning, I think you will agree.

So today I will leave you with this little gem to look at, and me? well I am going to do some hand washing and then off to my inner sanctum of my stitching room and I think I might start the day with some sketches to include this beautiful find and then it will be some stitching for me.......

Enjoy your day and Happy Stitching......




Our lives are like quilts - bits and pieces,  joy and sorrow,
stitched with love.......
