Red + Yellow
Owned and loved by Eren, This Vintage Chica

Eren discovered this vintage quilt and brought it home to call her own for her first house after college. She rediscovered it later in a box and it now rests on her son’s bed. Do you have vintage quilts you love? We shared this link when we highlighted one of Eren’s blue and white vintage quilts; Eren writes about the importance of quilts in her family’s life.

    I have a quilt that my mother-in-law gave us before she died, and I have no idea who made it. I need to contact some of her family and see what I can find out. My mom has a stack of quilts that her grandmothers made, so someday…. someday, I will have some of those.

    It´s good to see something cared and havinga longlife like this quilt, specially in a world where almost everything is meant to be disposable :)

    Love the bright colors! I have a quilt made by my great-grandma, and another by my husband’s great grandmother, and they are treasures!

    I only hope that a few of mine someday become vintage. I love knowing that its warmth has been shared by many.

  18. Julia D says:

    This is simple and beautiful! It’s all about the colors!!

    I suppose most of my quilts are becoming “vintage” since they’re over twenty years old (hard to believe). Seriously, I have a quilt made by my husband’s grandmother that is a “Grandmother’s Flower Garden” in yellows and scrap prints that I think is pretty old. I also sometimes get to borrow from my sister a green and white “Carpenter’s Wheel” quilt that was made by our great grandmother and must be close to a hundred years old by now. My sister got the quilt, I got the treadle sewing machine. It was a hard choice.
    I love the graphic quality of this red, yellow, and white quilt. It would be interesting to know the history of this quilt and how it was made.

  20. Katie says:

    What a find! I would love to be the owner of a vintage quilt. I guess I’ll just have to make one one time and have that be a vintage quilt in 50 years!

  21. Dawn says:

    Very pretty!

  22. Carol says:

    I wish I had a vintage quilt. I did pick up some sample quilts from a quilt shop that was clearing old samples – they were very inexpensive. Most were just tops to be finished, but I figured that would make for ultra fast gifts.

  23. min says:

    I love it. It made me go dig out an oldie from my pile of quilts and projects. It’s vintage to my family since it’s the first one I made. It’s fun to look back at the fabric I so loved at the time and see how my tastes have changed. I may be motivated to use the same pattern with today’s fabrics. Could be interesting.
    Great posts! I’ve so enjoyed this month.

  24. Emily says:

    I haven’t been lucky to stumble upon any vintage quilts… I guess I need to head out to yard sales earlier in the morning! It looks really snuggly!

  25. Alison says:

  28. Christina says:

    That is so fun!

  29. Alisha says:

    This is a lovely quilt. I was also wondering about how it was pieced. Hopefully we’ll see another quilt with similar piecing and more information on how it’s done. :)

  30. Amanda says:

    Wow, I would love to find something as beautiful as this! It was meant to be yours! :D

  31. Amanda says:

    This is really cool! I love red and yellow together, two of my favorite colors! The fact that it is vintage, makes it that much better! :D

  32. Libby says:

    WOW!! What a great find! Libby

  33. Kelli says:

    One can only hope that the time and love we put into a quilt will be as appreciated by someone :)

  34. Rose L says:

    How would a quilt like this have been pieced? I can’t tell what the blocks might have been – would it have been done as a whole from the center out?

  35. ellen says:

    It’s nice to see vintage quilts being loved and cared for. Hope people feel that way about the ones I’ve made and given with love!

  36. Cassie Ogle says:

    More bright and beautiful colors! I love it! :D

    OOh, this is one of my favorites!
