Something old.. part two

This is the story of how naughty children can make a parent happy!
We have three grown up....and this happend in 1995.

It's spring and time for spring cleaning in the area where we lived. Therefore they had ordered a container in which everyone could throw their trash.

A dangerous playground for children which I specifically told the children. You mustn't play there!

But dangerous is exiting....and the children they go....and had a look!

After a while three very happy excited kids came home pulling a big sack.
They looked so happy!
It turned out that the bag contained a wonderful patchwork quilt!

.........who could throw something like that?..a mystery for us who know the value of such work.


I know nothing about history!
But...look at the boarder...... marvelous blue fabric!

The quality of the quilt is very good ... the colors are kept well and the fabrics too.
Lovely cotton fabrics!

The back is like many old quilts made of a rough fabric...and the stitching is very well done considering how thick the quilt is.
Another fantastic work! it ended?
Well...who can ban children who makes your day!
They knew exactly what their mum would say!
I love you! ...but never....

Happy Quilting!

  2. WOW, for et fantastisk funn. Det er jo rene skatten dette her. Ikke ofte man kommer over slike gamle flotte quilter.
    En hærlig historie:-)

  3. Haha, jag hade faktiskt glömt bort täckena i containern, men nu minns jag =) kul!
