.......this one is actually NOT a "blanket", but a fabric collage/quilt made by my artist cousin and donated to our local Relay for Life this weekend. The background fabric is actually a beautifully quilted vintage satin quilt she got at the Salvation Army thrift shop! Three sides are scalloped; one side is white and the other a very pale lavender. She cut up various fabrics and clothes and laces, buttons, etc. for the blocks and embellished them with even more things like broken costume jewelry, rick-rack, measuring tape, crocheted flowers, etc. I'm anxious to find out how much $$$ it brought to the cause........lots of people were fondling it!
........and this is a thin (wool?) "Indian" blanket in gorgeous colors, with one small design in the center. It's been packed away in a cedar chest for more than 50 years, so it's in wonderful condition. I wish I could tell if it was handwoven or machine-made. (I also can't decide whether to give it for a gift for a dear one who loves western things, or to sell it here in our local vintage shop!) If anyone reading this could give me more information about it by seeing a photo of the entire blanket, please let me know!
