I've been reading Kris's blog Simplify on her new sewing room and the quilt pieces she's been working on. I don't know how to quilt; or much about quilting for that matter, but it's made me curious about my family antique quilt.
I keep it in my bedroom over an antique oak rocker.
(I refold it periodically to rotate the creases.)
I believe the pattern is called "Flying Geese"? It is hand stitched, look at those tiny stitches...
and, on the cream part, there is a leaf and berry motif.
I was hoping someone out there with some quilting expertise could give me some information on my quilt. Maybe roughly how old it is, what the pattern might be called, etc.
It is thin; a front and back with no batting in between. The back is solid cream, same fabric as the cream blocks on the front.

Hubby and I have been trying to make the new house more of a home.
Last weekend, we moved furniture around and hung up more pictures.
I've been struggling with how to decorate the house. Most of our things are old or antique in darker wood. Trying to find the right location for pieces has been a challenge.
I've got three different styles in this photo alone. Most of it has been gifted to us from family. I have Early American, 19th Century antique and modern traditional....
What's a girl to do?
Decorating is a work in progress.
I hope your week is going well.
