THRIFT STORE BLUE QUILT FIND

I will admit a weakness for thrift stores.  I think I got that from my Mom, she was the best at finding great deals. I think she taught me a little about that, ha.  The other day, on a whim, I stopped into a nearby store and found this.  It's a beautiful patchwork quilt, done in shades of blue.  It will be PERFECT in our
"BLUE WHITE BEDROOM"


It's got a great pattern that even highlights design cues on the bed set that we bought.  It's also reversible with a very nice Paisley pattern on the back side of it.  The colors are bright blue, but the flash of the camera kind of washed that out.  Best of all, it was only $15!




Of course, that would a quilt or blanket be without a cat exploring it?  While I was taking this picture, Hobart just couldn't resist.  I think he slept under there for about an hour before he found a new place elsewhere...

That's really a nice looking find. Enjoy it.

Ginny - Thanks, yeah I think it's funny how when you are looking for something specific, you start to see it everywhere. Now that I've narrowed the color scheme down to blue/white, I'm seeing blue/white stuff everywhere. I just couldn't pass this up.

$15 that is a fantastic score, I found a nice brown/tan quilt for $5 at a yard sale, has small separation between a couple of the blocks so I am going to use stitch witchery before sewing the blocks back together.

Tombstone - Yeah, I just happened upon it, and I was SO thrilled when I saw it. As I was inspecting for damage (there was none) two people stopped by and said "wow, that's really nice, are there more like it?". I'm thinking it was meant to be, ha. I need to hit some yard sales too, we can always use more quilts, ha. Sounds like scored a nice one too!

Bee Girl - Thanks! It was one of those things that I saw and knew i just had to have it, ha. Now if we could only get a mattress on that bedframe, I can start the decorating! ha.
