A vintage quilt.

Good Friday morning.
It's still cold here in northern, lower Michigan.
I had to pull the window boxes in the garage last night, because of the cold temps.
As some of you know, I collect linens, doilies, and buttons.
A friend makes gorgeous quilts, and pillows. I've asked her to make several custom quilts for my home.
Recently I asked Kim to put together a vintage quilt using doilies, and white buttons to match two pillows that she previously had made.

I put the quilt and pillows on the bed this morning.
It's just perfect!!

Kim is a perfectionist.
Her projects are all done with care, and every seem, and corner line up to a T.
She has a certain style that is unmistakable.

I love all of the vintage pieces that were used to put this quilt together.
It marries so well with the bed frame.

I want to thank this special lady for all of the time that it took to make this quilt for me.
I LOVE it, Kim!
It's beautiful!
AND exactly what I wanted.
You are amazing!
I hope the weather improves here in Michigan, so I can put the window boxes back out.
Have a great weekend everyone, where ever you are!!



  1. Dear Debbie, I am thinking these are not doubt a work of art and what a great way to pull the vintage and lace and doilies together. I would love to make a table scarf for my living room end tables! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I am cleaning and rearranging today. Just taking a break and wanted to visit you!
    Lovely, Roxy

  2. Debbie, When people sew that well....I call it a work of art. It is one of a kind also. I absolutely love it. Hope you get many warm snuggles with it. Blessings for a warmer weekend, xoxo,Susie

  4. Debbie...your quilt and pillows are so beautiful!! Your friend does awesome work!! These will be pieces that you will treasure forever.

  5. We're experiencing chilly temps here to and I took my flowers off the balcony...quite a change from Florida a week ago!
    Love that quilt, Kim is really a detailer!!! A nice meandering pattern to her machine quilting, too.

  6. So pretty Debbie. It looks great on your bed. It actually snowed here in Chicagoland this morning and I had to drag all my flowers into the dining room and living room. OMG this is the middle of May. Sometimes I ask myself why I live in the midwest???? I will keep mine in tonight and then hopefully tomorrow be able to have them back outside. Too crazy. Have a great week end.

  13. The bedding is stunning Debbie! Your friend is truly an artisan. What a great idea to use your collections to create a one of a kind piece of art! We didn't get snow here, but did have frost.
