A vintage quilt

A recent find..............

This gorgeous vintage quilt.

It is so nice to find a boys quilt as these types of patterns don't come up very often.  Most quilts I come across are more suited for girls - pretty florals etc.  I'm always on the lookout for old quilts in great condition - especially for the wee men in my life.  Sadly Bell is very set on what she wants in her bedroom now.  Currently on her wishlist is a "GLEE" duvet cover.  No more pinks, purples, butterflies and fairies for her.
The colours are still lovely and bright. The inner is no longer thick but the material is lovely and soft. It looks like it may be barkcloth.


The colours are a great match with the bunting I have in the playroom.

I have it on a couch in the playroom at the moment but once the heavy blankets come off Tom's bed I think I will use it in his room as a summer bed cover.  This lovely quilt is also a really decent size so will look great on Tom's bed.


  1. Great find! You're right, boys quilts are very rare, well done! Ada :)

  2. I agree. "Boy fabric" quilts are much harder to come by. Well done.

  3. Lol... We have a certain way we want things to look with beautiful covers, art etc and then our children throw a curve ball at us by requesting "Glee" bedspreads - or in my case "Disney Princesses"!

    Gorgeous quilt!I had a girlfriend complain once that boy selections in clothing stores were quite poor as well... I wouldn't know. I have a a little girl and her wardrobe is busting st the seams! Or is it just more fun to dress up a little girl?!
