Happy 4th of July!


Pete and I went a July 4th festival in the small town of Seward, NE this morning. There was a little antique show going on there, along with tons of fair food, a gigantic craft show, and other festivities. We only survived about an hour and a half in the mid-90 degree heat, but that was plenty of time for me to nab this red and white antique quilt.

I love the red cross design - there's something very modern about it, but still classic, simple, and traditional. And I'm a sucker for a red and white quilt. I threw it over the couch, where it's providing a touch of patriotic country charm. Very Ralph Lauren, don't you think? I don't know that it will stay here, but for today it's perfect.

Happy 4th!

  2. I am in love with your quilt! I did a post on my love of red cross items and even painted a medicine cabinet with the Swiss emblem. I also ordered a funky cross quilt pattern that I hope to make, but I'd really love an old one like yours. You just can't duplicate "old".

    Love your newly added profile photo!

  3. It is beautiful! And I love the blue coverlet pillow too. I am also such a sucker for a red and white quilt. I have a new martha stewart one in my guest room but am longing for an antique one. Happy 4th!
