i'm a little behind with robin's blog carnival (robin of the other mother). in celebration of freedom to marry week, i'll post.
today, i'm posting something old. i found this quilt at an antique store in our neighborhood. it cost me $35.
it reminds me of a hand stitched quilt my great grandmother made, which i no longer have. the one my great grandmother made was only two colors: pink and white. this one has, as the petals of the flowers, samples of wonderful patterned fabric (is that flour sack fabric?) i know very little about quilts. but i know what i like in a work of art. the art that i have in my home needs to be something that i can study for years and years, and always find something new--or a new way of looking at it. this quilt fits the bill. we have this on our bed, and i just love looking at it. it makes me think, and it brings me pleasure.
