Have you ever changed your mind about something you thought you wanted to sell? Yesterday, I found this charming little silk quilt when going through things I wanted to list on eBay. Originally, I was going to list it for sale, but then I took a good look at it and decided I liked it too much to sell it. So, I'm keeping it! :)
The quilt is 48" x 49" and has a pleasing selection of multicolored silks. Even though I'm calling it a keeper, it may not be a keeper to all collectors because of its condition issues. A few of the blocks show some shredding to the silk at the seams, and there is some bleeding of the dye in the black fabric.
I've had this quilt for a long time, and wasn't really sure what to do with it. When it surfaced again I immediately realized it was a rescue quilt, and so I'm going to add it to that group of quilts in my collection. The quilt is charming, colorful, displays well, and is a pattern I haven't seen elsewhere. I call that a keeper!
