Vintage Thingy Thursday: quaint wallhanging

Hosted by Colorado Lady! This week she shares with us her new display of vintage platters and creamers. After enlarging her photos, I smiled. One of her creamers in in the pattern my grandmother had, and that brings back happy memories.

oops! Picture is a little crooked! Click to enlarge. That's the bedroom carpet in the background :-) This wallhanging came from a small, local "antique mall" that was actually more of a flea market. I don't normally like Sunbonnet Sue type things, but this was too sweet to pass up.


I don't know how old it is, but it is vintage. The green, yellow, and bright red fabrics were manufactured for years and years. The pinks seem to be from the 1930's or 1940's. There is a backing but no batt and no quilting. No name or date.


I am pretty sure this is a pattern, though I have not seen this one before. Right now it is languishing in my quilt room closet, but I should find a place for it, out of direct sunlight.

That is a very neat picture. Older things just have a different meaning for us.

I love the fabrics that make up this sweet scene.
I'm having a giveaway for a Halloween bracelet. Be sure to look at it when you stop by for VTT.

That's a cute wall hanging. Hard to date something like that.

I agree, it's hard to date, but the fabrics help tell that it has some age. Really a sweet item.

What a sweet little wallhanging! I can see why you couldn't leave it behind. I especially love that red fabric. Maybe feedsack fabric? Hope you find a good place to hang it!
Happy VTT!

Precious and sweet it is. Can't be Hansel and Gretel, for the house has no candy or cookies. But could those be sugarplums in the tree?

Coloradolady said...

Have a great Weekend and a wonderful VTT!
