Vintage (plus new!) Hand Sewn Hand Quilted Throw or Wall Hanging
This blanket is a mix of vintage and contemporary components. It started as a quilt top that was purchased at an estate sale in New Milford, CT in the 1980’s. Unfortunately, the top had never been made into a quilted item. We love the muted, soft and comfortable colors – especially since we no longer see these colors in today’s quilts. Most importantly, the quilt top was sewn together by hand.
We felt it would be a shame to not finish this vintage top and make it into the contemporary quilt it deserves to be. We used a high loft batting, a soft pale blue cotton fabric for the back and added hanging loop and then hand quilted it into existence.
The result is a cozy, warm blanket (or throw) – great for napping. There is also a hanging sleeve sewn onto the back of the throw should you prefer to hang it on a wall. We love it!
