Summer Quilt



My wonderful tree peony is flowering- It is just with me for a short time but love this gorgeous flower.

It also seems summer has come and it is time for a change with my bed quilt- I purchased this lovely pastel one when I was in Florida the same time I bought the bear paw with all the old fabrics in it. This one I got from the man who sold me the doll crib quilt . I also bought another red and white one when I was there but you will have to wait until I fancy a change of bedding again to see that one. I really think it has only a sheet in between for batting as it is very thin, not to much quilting on it either but its nice a fresh look for the summer. Judging by the fabrics I guess it was made in the 1930's.
Someone please remind me what this block is called.

I really don't have to go mad and keep decorating a different quilt on the bed does it for me. As they say a change is as good as a rest. I am easily pleased.

P>S It came to me in a flash. ( IT DID TAKE A WHILE) the block is called Turkey Tracks. ( Correct me if I am wrong)

  1. Pretty pink peony and beautiful quilt - fresh and cool.

  2. Hi Sue,
    That tree peony is magnificent and I love the colour. The quilt is very pretty too and a great idea to just ring the changes with a different quilt. I don't know that I have seen that block before.

  3. I love your peony Sue and your quilt is gorgeous. It will be nice and light for hot summer evenings.

  4. What a gorgeous flower and quilt!! A perfect summery change.

  5. I can't think of a better way to redecorate than with such a beautiful quilt. The peony is just gorgeous too.
