The Plaids Have It!

There is something just a little bit wonderful about a quilt that has been made using many plaids. I’m not sure what it is that I find so appealing about that particular fabric. Maybe it’s because they remind me of those little dresses me and my sisters used to wear when we were children.

I bought this quilt from a dealer on eBay a little over a year ago. I looked at it a long time before I bid on it. It looks just a bit scruffy and, in the description, it said it, “had a few age spots” on it. A few was putting it mildly because there are plenty of those spots on it. I have high hopes that a good soaking will get rid of many of the spots. But if not, I still love the quilt.

Good grief! I really did take some awful pictures of these blocks! At least you can see what they look like though.

If you look at the photo of the quilt, you can see the arrangement of the plaid blocks. They each march across the quilt on the diagonal.

My least favorite plaid on the quilt is the brown and blue.

Now that Spring has just about sprung, I will be able to wash this quilt and lay it out in the sunshine. I can’t wait to see how bright and fresh it will look once that happens!
