Monday, January 30

What's on the line at the end of January?

Stars are on the line!!  And isn't this quilt a beauty?  I just love it!  

It's another vintage quilt bought at a farm auction by mother and dad. I'm thinking it could be the 1950's, maybe 1940's, not sure at all. While the picture was taken last September on a beautiful day "just right for picture-taking", I knew there would be a day in winter when it would be just right for "posting to my blog".  This day was that "just right day" for a little "vintage quilt sunshine"!  Can you believe it's the last Monday in January? In just a couple days, February will roll in and I'll start thinking "Hearts" but January always makes me think of stars. So often I remember winter nights and looking up into the sky at the stars. They always seemed to shine brighter on really cold nights. This quilt would be most welcome on a really cold night!!  I like the yellow centers on the stars, which almost makes them look like flowers. And as mild as our weather is these days, it won't be long before there might be real flowers popping up!
And with the flowers would come spring winds.  It was fall winds that were blowing when I took these photos but I just loved watching the quilts sway back and forth..............
 Look at that green grass in the background and all those green lush leaves!
The wind would pick up the quilt............
 and flap the corners in and out...........
and then the quilt settled down for a perfect picture..............
Hope this quilt makes you smile like it makes me smile! 
Happy Monday everyone!!!

That was mother natures way of helping you get the perfect shot. It looks just like when we throw and shake it across the bed to make the bed.
