I love to shop on Etsy. When I saw this vintage quilt top I knew I had to quilt it and give it a new life. I purchased the top from Sharron at Spring Street Emporium.

Living in Central New York, I don't come across the Ocean Wave pattern often. If I do, it is either a darker version with 19th century prints set on bubblegum pink, or solids set on navy (Amish). You can see why this sweet quilt top caught my eye.

Sharron had purchased the top from an estate sale near Pea Ridge, Arkansas (where the Civil War Battle was fought). The fabrics are definitely 20s and 30 feedsacks, a few mourning prints, shirting prints and a few indigo triangles. The triangles are all set on a muslin with a muslin border. The entire top was hand pieced.

I used a Moda Print designed by Sandy Klopp of American Jane for the backing along with two strips of fabric to give it a contemporary twist - another American Jane and a green Kaffe Fassett shot cotton. I used a Harriet Hargrave cotton batting along with 27 bobbins of thread in my sewing machine during quilting. The thread is a 50 wt 100 percent cotton.

It is heavily quilted! I blogged about it if you want to see it under my machine needle:

I have washed the quilt to ensure its stability and a long life in your home. The vintage top is exactly what it is - vintage. Although it was never used as a quilt, the top was stored for years. With the storage comes patina on some of the fabrics. Being machine quilted as thoroughly as it has, the quilt is going to give years of usage. The fabrics were supple before quilting and perfect for this kind of custom quilting. Some small areas of staining lightened up, but a faint trace remains. With the heavy quilting, I don't find it noticeable.

The finished quilt measures 72" square. The photos are of the quilt on a full size bed.

I love this quilt and I know you will too.

Write me if you have any questions.

If you want this mailed to a different address as a gift, I will gladly gift wrap at no extra charge.
