It looks like one of those 鈥榖lack light鈥 posters from the 70鈥檚

It's a beautiful quilt, I think.
MagentaF
[@910977,Piper] Glad you like. I have a hard time finding coverlets I like.

[@1173,Magenta] The one grandmother I got to know some, made some lovely quilts. They are surely vintage and hand stitched, but not quite as appealing (to me) as the one pictured.
MagentaF
[@910977,Piper] How special.
I was never that fond of most quilts actually.
Man !
There's a lot of sewing in that.
MagentaF
[@710185,BoobooSnafu] Indeed. And it's not all perfectly straight which adds to the charm.
[@1173,Magenta] there is something very unique about handstiched things...they always have more character.

My daughter recently made her friend a blanket ...and one corner went all wrong .

She obsessed about it, but time limited her from fixing it.
Yet....when it was all finished ...that wonky corner gave it personality.

You're right....it really does add charm.

MagentaF
[@1189287,Trippy] 馃槉That would be great but I'm trying to stay with cool colors for the bedroom. Blue shades.
TrippyF
[@1173,Magenta] Ahhh... Nice. Soothing. My bedroom walls are covered in long haired band dudes. 馃し鈥嶁檧锔

My grandmother used to make quilts like that. She called them crazy quilts. She saved every scrap of fabric from making clothing, and even cut up clothing she was about to throw away.

If you love color, try painting your wall behind the bed the same bright green as the solid green square in the top photo. It would cause all the blues in the quilt to pop.
MagentaF
[@387713,4meAndyou] Aaww, a bygone era.

My walls are a light soft grey and I was thinking something with blue in it. Maybe a blueberry that has a hint of purple.
4meAndyouF
[@1173,Magenta] Sounds lovely. Of course, the quilt will disappear...too much blue.

MagentaF
[@1044765,HatterM] I can't feel it as there are other blankets under it. 馃き
HatterM46-50, M
[@1173,Magenta] To the touch 馃槅 It looks like it has such textures too! Well, even cosier inside then with the other layers too 馃槉
