I just have to share my find on our recent trip to the Oregon Coast! I was amazed to find this lovely vintage quilt at an Antique store. It is in such pristine condition that I wonder if it is actually fairly new. But the fabrics are 30's prints and it is beautifully handquilted, so I'm not sure. Never the less, I think it is a wonderful find and I was happy to pay 95.00 for it! Actually a bargain if it is vintage! I would invite anyone who is interested to chime in-do you think it is vintage, or new? The clerk of the antique mall had no idea!

The other project has been around much longer-about 6 yrs. I haven't touched it in about 4 yrs. The idea was to applique and embroider around the birds and flowers that I added to the panel with the border. Then I will probably hand quilt it...maybe! The bird panel is an authentic indigo dyed Japanese cotton panel with the cranes printed on. It is so lovely and I hope to see it finished yet!
This will be a good week for starting this as we are on vacation until the 18th. We are going to Oregon for a few days, and then hanging out at home for a few more days.
