I like the vintage look of Christmas Cactus.Antiquing with Pam and the Doans? Now that sounds like a fun time!! : )
I don't go Antique shopping, I go treasure hunting. It looks like you found some wonderful treasures. And what a fun group to go with!
NEAT POST! THANKS FOR SHARINGfirstname.lastname@example.org
The hunt is so much fun.... thanks for sharing and I look forward to seeing where your goodies end up in your home.
Your Christmas Cactus line and pattern are scrumptious! Love seeing those treasures that you picked up!
My husband is a painter. I am always asking his opinion when picking fabric from my stash for a project as to what colors look good together. It's wonderful to have a husband enjoy our love of quilting.
Shipshewana IN also has some fabulous finds ... not that I've personally found them but one of my friends raves about that swap meet. Highly recommended!
Antiques and Quilts, what's not to love. I am a collector of both. Thanks for the chance to win some of your great fabric.Quilting in Michigan
I love the collection of treasures you found and can't wait to see what you come up with in the future with those quilts as inspiration. Thanks for the give-away.
I am anxious to get started on Christmas projects, so thank you for all your inspiration!
I love the items you find on your treasure hunt. I often regret when I don't buy things especially when I see something that would be a perfect gift for a friend and then when the friend's birthday is just days away I know that I've already seen the perfect gift but can't remember what or where.
Some really wonderful eye candy in this post, including that Christmas Cactus charmer!
I love to go antiquing and treasure hunting. It's the one thing my hubby and I do together whenever we travel.
You found some real treasures!
What a lovely assortment of beautiful antiques you picked up on your trip. Love the blocks.
Oh no, I think you planned out my next road trip! LOL I didn't know about the antique show in IL. We've never been to IL, but now I think we must go! I love your finds and your style of decorating. :)
What a fun find for your bedroom. I've never seen anything like that.. Antique shows are the best!
Thanks for sharing your find! Living in the east, I've never seen a winnower before; I learned something! Thanks for the giveaway chance too. Kimberly of LaunderedCotton at gmail dot com
Love your finds and designs. The Arthur antique show is on my bucket list. Not sure it will ever get crossed off since I now live in CA - no longer IL. Charlotte
I didn't know about the Arthur antique show. As a newbie to antique collecting I am enjoying the displays from both you and Pam. Just what I needed--another "vice"!
Sounds like you all had fun on your trip and came back with several treasures. Love the setting you put them in. Christmas Cactus is so cute, I'm going to have to make it.
I love the hunt antiqueing can be. The Christmas Cactus is so pretty.
I love your layered patchwork technique and the Christmas Cactus pattern is my favorite so far. We live in west central IL and Arthur is one of our favorite "Day Trip" destinations.
I've never gone antiquing, but I can see why you do it. These items would make your home so comfortable and cozy.
I would absolutely LOVE to win a charm pack and pattern to stitch Christmas Cactus! I'm sure that with your stitching technique, this could easily be accomplished in a weekend! :-) I do enjoy antiquing... though I leave most of it behind since the prices have gone through the roof... that's what I like about knowing how to sew and be handy with tools... we can always recreate an antique quilt, or modify something we have to be a make-do-antique-style decorative piece... Love that quilt in the center under the Cabins for Rent sign... :-)
Love your style, you are a natural! Isn't it fun when you find those unexpected treasures.
Quilts and antiques - great combination! My fabric choice for quilts is KT - they remind me of home in the Midwest.
I LOVE treasure hunting!
I love the Christmas Cactus pattern. Just beautiful! I don't have a lot of antiques but I do have things passed down from my mother and grandmother. I get them out at Thanksgiving and feel like they are here with us.
Please open those quilts up so we can see all the goodness. Vintage era things always make great combinations.
I love to treasure hunt too.. Really enjoy seeing what you have found. All our treasures just seem to go hand in hand with your fabric & patterns. Thank you....
Visit Arthur 2 or 3 times a year. Am not familiar with the two day antique show. Please tell me more! Love your finds!
search Arthur Antique Shows and you'll get the list/dates. Enjoy!
Sounds like you had a much needed get away.
Love your fabrics.
Happy to hear you enjoyed your get away. Thanks for this wonderful and pretty giveaway.
Love to go antique shopping- there are so many hidden treasures out there waiting for someone to love again
I LOVE the Prairie Cactus fabs. Already bought a jelly roll. Would love to surround the mini quilts w/antiques. Have a blessed day arranging everything!
What fun...antiquing with friends! Thank you for this opportunity to win this kit. I would love to win it.Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
I love your antiquing and treasure hunting. I watch a tv programme about find antiqiung.
I knew Arthur was antique country here in Illinois but didn't know about the show either. Antiques are so nice to live with; you don't have to worry about them too much and no one else will have one just like it. Your KT lines go so well with my house, maybe I should just decorate with stacks of fabric waiting to be made into quilts. Oh, I already do that (in one room anyway).
Lynne I love your new pieces! I'm a New England girl living in Atlanta and I miss all of the antique shops I grew up with. The new pattern is fabulous, I adore it.
What fun you both have in "gathering"! We have lots of antique shops in BUcksCOuntyPA can't wait to see what patterns you will create with your beautiful fabrics. I collect old stone homes if you ever wish to visit, and have great holidays.
Prairie Cactus is a gorgeous line of fabric. Perfect for fall and Christmas too.
I've never been to an antique shop before, although my sister has and she's been after me to go with her sometime. I love the treasures you and Robert found, especially those cozy looking quilts!
Great obsession, can't wait to see you photos. Lovely table topper I would love to make one!
I am not a great antique hunter, I buy then I regret both what I did and what I didn't buy. So I tend to shy away from the mega events. The last one I went to was in Texas, luckily, I was flying home so I had to restrain my buying impulses. You made some great finds. Love the Christmas cactus pattern. Thanks.
Love your antique finds. My house is full of them! I have the perfect place to put the Christmas Cactus table topper- an antique sewing machine!!!
What great treasures you found! The Prairie Christmas line is gorgeous - makes a beautiful Christmas cactus.
Sounds like so much fun! Love all of your fabric.
Your trip sounds like such fun, and your finds are great. Company wasn't too bad either.I have just the right place for your Christmas Cactus quilt. It brings back such memories. We had a very dear friend who had her mother's Christmas Cactus, and it was about three feet in diameter so this will remind us of them.
I love antique shopping. Glad you found some new items.
Love the cabins......Precious. And very inspiring.
I love your Christmas cactus pattern! My grandma always had a huge one on her sun porch!Nancyeddnancy@msn.com
I also love the antiques mixed in with my quilts. I loved your obsessions. I recently picked up a small spinning wheel. Thanks for sharing.
Looking lovely ♥
What great finds on your antique shopping excursion! I love the Christmas cactus pattern and it would be wonderful to make!
seems I keep repeating myself about how much I enjoy your blog. Thanks for all the fun.
Fun. Fun. Glad it was a relaxing trip for you all. Happy Thanksgiving!
Thank you for sharing your great finds. What a great trip.
I would love Togo antique shopping there too. What great unusual items. I love to go to flea markets and see what I can find. I've purchased some amazing crystal beads and salt cellars.
Love your gorgeous finds. I too love hunting out old treasures to add to our home to give it that wonderful warm homely feel
Antiques and quilts - I love seeing your pictures and posts! thank you!
sounds like you had a successful trip. Can't wait to see what all those inspirations turn into for KT fabric of the future.
I am antique obsessed too! Thanks!Please click on the delaineelliott above for my email link.
Oh Girl, What I would give to go antiquing with you!!! You sure know how to pick 'em! And I need those pieces for my quilt!
Wow! What a fun trip! And you found so many neat treasures. Thanks for sharing.
Love your treasures!
