are you cold???

a little family outing today led us to this stack of goodness. nineteen quilts, to be specific. vintage, hand-stitched, beautiful, fluffy quilts. and not a stinky one in the bunch. we decided to buy up the lot. most are destined for the shop, though a couple will stay around these parts for awhile. jeremy has already claimed one; it's been washed and dried and is laid out on his side of the bed. (yes, he needs his own quilt. apparently the other 3 of us are blanket-theives!).







i guess there are more than enough to go around now. aren't they pretty? i'm personally having trouble picking a favorite!

What a find! That's hilarious that your son needs his own! lol! In our family, it's the little two yr old who hogs all the blankets!

The quilt with the girls in the bonnets? I have one just like that made by my great-grandmother. My two brothers have one with sailboats and one with airplanes. They are treasured!
