I have wanted to share this gorgeous antique quilt in Melody's Tuesday Treasures for some time now...
But it has been packed away with some of my other precious quilts...until this past weekend when I got the chance to dig them out again and let them breathe!
I've spoken of my wonderful friend Virginia (no blog - unfortunately!) many times including how she used to have an antique quilt business and would find these beautiful quilts from Australia and America and sell them.
A few years back, for my Anniversary, my husbands present was for me to choose one of the antique quilts from Virginia's collection.
I couldn't take my eyes off this gorgeous yo yo quilt.
I just loved how unusual it was and how much work had gone into the quilt.....
Entirely made by hand and using so many wonderful fabrics from that era..
I'm guessing from the amount of brights, purples and oranges in the quilt, that it is possibly from the 1970's.
I love the thoughtful gift from my husband and it is definitely a treasure to me.
I am going to see who else is sharing their treasures today over at Melody's.
Have a great Tuesday!!!
