giveaway: vintage mini-quilt

In the market on 01/12/2010 at 11:39 am

My little market has found its way to Etsy, thanks to one very sweet hubby. He gave me the gift of several uninterrupted hours to tie up the loose ends over the weekend. I promise not to bore you with constant shop updates but I would like to celebrate its opening and thought that a giveaway would be fun.

This sweet vintage hand-tied quilt is looking for a new home. I say “quilt” but please note that it does not have batting between the layers so it is pretty light-weight…more of  a Summer quilt. Like many vintage linens, it does have its flaws and a few tiny spots. Of course, it could also be used as a wall-hanging, a play mat or a picnic blanket. Whatever strikes your fancy.
