We are visiting the Carriage House
once again in our
This week we have the pleasure
of talking about what I call
"The Utilitarian Diamond"...
...because of the way the vintage cottons in this quilt have been utilized. Though diamonds are more difficult to quilt I believe the fabric has been used to create a utility quilt; one that can be used for any purpose.
I love these fabrics! It makes you want to snuggle underneath and read a book in this window seat - with its lovely view of the Carriage House.
If anyone can find a more complete history of this elongated diamond pattern, I would really like to hear it, as well as publish it on my blog at a future date.
When I found this quilt top antiquing, I knew it was going to be freehand quilted in feathers. Me; the incurable romantic.
Thank you once again for coming with me for a quick glimpse of another good old quilt.
Until next time!
