Happy Friday Everyone,

Was out shopping with my Sister and we came across a Antique Store and looky what I found...

The green tree of life quilt (I think that is what it is called is 1860 circa all handmade, no batting so I think it was a utilitarian quilt, but I just loved how soft it looked so ofcourse had to buy and the second quilt - Carolina Lily was all hand made in Ohio Circa 1895!!  Can you believe it, I bought that one as well, so there goes all my "fun" money, but the Lily one I put on my bed and the green tree of life is displayed in my foyer!    I love to look at both of these and think "who made these" I wish I new the ladies the Green one had a tag that said Washington D.C. and the Lily was made in Ohio.....WOW  it is fun to go shopping when you find Beauties like these!!!

Hope everyone has a Great Weekend,




  1. I like the tree quilt best. I think your fun money was well spent and you will have the quilts to enjoy for many years.

  2. Wow! those are some great quilts you found.
