The very best vintage quilt and the sweetest vintage bedlinens for your home

Today I have some unique treasures for you to look at and dream of owning. Remember, I accept Paypal or your personal cheque and I'm always happy to consider spacing payment for your purchases over several equal instalments.
Contact me: janet@novascotiaquilts.com for an invoice or to discuss further.

This lovely vintage quilt dates to the twenties or thirties - it is the popular Lonestar but with a very creative twist that sets it aside from other Lonestars. The quilter in this case decided to set her rainbow pastels with a strong rose pink and then back it with the same lovely shade. This quilt is no shrinking violet, but will make a wonderful statement in a guest room or a little girl's room and will grow with your daughter into her teens and young adulthood - truly an heirloom treasure!

As you can see this 72x76 inch quilt has been carefully and accurately pieced and the elegant and understated quilting enhances the pattern beautifully.
 There are no rips, tears, spots, stains or fading - this quilt clearly was cared for and treasured. Fresh and lovely and ready to go on your bed. Quilts ship with a sweet hand stitched lavender sachet.

PRICE: vintage pink lonestar quilt 72x76  $575USD+$35USD trackable and insured shipping - quote #CC 0380

For a coordinated look, I suggest you consider some vintage linens - you could choose either hand embellished beauties like the full size 100% cotton full double sheet below

Or this lovely 100% cotton full size sheet with an insertion of sweet filet crochet
This single pillowcase below could be teamed with either a plain case or an embroidered or lacey one:
Or this pair of delicate cutwork pillowcases made by cottage industry in either Madeira or Macau  which were both Portuguese outposts in the 1920's.

Another option is to simply dress down your bed and your special quilt by using vintage plain 100% cotton sheets and pillowcases - I have a lot of 'still in the package' items that should please you - contact me to see and consider a range of possibilities:  janet@novascotiaquilts.com

I am confident I can help you dress your bed with lovely vintage hand embellished linens for less than $150USD - tell me what you'd like and I can show you some options.

Remember, I take Paypal or accept your personal cheque, and 10% will go to support local organizations in my tiny but lovely Nova Scotian fishing village!
