chambray + vintage patchwork


Without expecting it, this quilt has become my current favorite. The chambray and those vintage fabrics make me happy, and it’s surprisingly soft, too! I told Morgan it could be his, then promptly claimed it as mine once it made its way to the couch.


I backed this one with a fabric I ordered from Westwood Acres when they had a sale on yardage. I wasn’t as fond of it as I thought when it arrived, as it was more beige than I expected, but as it turns out, a good match with these vintage blocks. There’s one bright red square in one of the blocks, so I quite like the pairing. (Previous post about this quilt, along with a full shot of the top, can be found here).


It has a number of stains, and the hand sewn blocks will definitely need some repair (in some places sooner than later!), but I think it adds to the charm. I love that it already feels a bit worn and broken in. I like to think that the person who made these quilt blocks would be happy to know they’ve found their way into a quilt and are being used and loved!
