This one is actually The Breadman's Baby Quilt. Made by his Grandma. It's bedraggled, but it is the only item from his entire childhood that he brought to our marriage.
This is The Bean's Baby Quilt. Made by his Great-Grandma. The Breadman's Grandma. Notice the exact same Sunbonnet Sue embroidery. I think having these two quilts together is super special.
The Bean's Baby Pendleton Blanket. Given to him by my Mom and StepFather.
The green is one side.
The back is red.
He used to take this to powwow and hang it on the back of his chair - just like a big guy.
As for thrifted baby quilts:
This sweet embroidered baby blanket was $2.00 at the thrift one day.
How could anyone a) get rid of it or b) sell it for $2.00?
I especially love that sunbathing baby with her duckie.
This sweet little quilt is made out of four child's sized hankerchiefs.
Such a sweet little noseblower.
I love this old quilt with it's block pattern and pale green fabrics.
But, as cute as this is - it's the back!
Here's the front. Ack. Pure cuteness.
Bunnies! Does it get any better than Bunnies?????
This one doesn't really fit in with the cutie-pie ones. But, I think it's pretty special. It's made of pieces of old flannel from shirts, suits, etc. Either someone was very resourceful or someone made a quilt out of Grandpa's old shirts for the baby.
Lastly, a wonderful hand tied quilt made of wee squares of lots of tiny prints.
Baby Quilts: Another reason to look everywhere at the thrifts. I have NO reason to even be in the baby department. But, I always look for vintage baby blankets and quilts.
(It's nearly zero outside, we have about ten inches of snow with a couple inches of ice and sleet under that. BUT WE HAVE POWER so all is well!) KNOCK WOOD. :D
