A friend of ours is clearing out some of her mother's sewing things, and was kind enough to think of me before sending it all to an estate sale. We went over last weekend and came home with about 5 boxes of vintage fabric, buttons, crochet yarn, lace, and other sewing notions and knick-knacks.
She also gave me this "Bow Tie" quilt top from the 1930's. It is in OK condition though it has a few stains, tears, and there are 2 complete blocks missing from the corners, so I guess I'll have to remake them. I am planning on repairing it and quilting it.
Also, I got a treasure box of vintage buttons, and some really neat vintage silk and rayon ribbon. I love the packaging--the little hanks are folded over with an aluminum band, and I love the vintage look of the spools. I am using some of these items in some new quilties that I am making.
