There is something so soft and romantic about vintage ephemera- all those old illustrations, faded postcards, stamps, bits of ribbons, old luggage labels. You name it, if it's old paper, Joanna is drawn to it! It is all those vintage tidbits that are the inspiration behind this soft patchwork quilt. I don't know what it is about vintage bird images placed together with those plain text words and lots of patchwork that just speaks nostalgia and charm to me.
Constructed of a simple patchwork background, this quilt combines the possibility of adding words, along with simple applique. Add the finishing touches with wool or fabric applique accents and be well on your way to finishing your own vintage heirloom.
