Vintage Fabric

I had forgotten that I had this nice bark cloth linen type drapery panel!
Was digging though my vintage fabric tub and saw it!
Decided to pull it out and deconstruct it.
Was a very nice custom made piece.

It is so very Americana! A toile type.
I am not sure of the date on the fabric.
Have not been able to find any like it online.
The salvage was trimmed just enough so I CANNOT see maker. Darn.
Very high end quality fabric.

Backing/lining aged to perfection for some other projects...stitchery maybe.;-)

I decided to make a simple runner for the table with it.
Really love it!

Also a simple flanged pilla cover for DH's Great Granny Peden's sewing rocker.
Looked great for the July 4th celebration!
I leave my Americana up for the summer so they fit right in!

Fireplace all flagged up..;)
Found those old blue and white doilies and they worked!
Even have a red, white and blue stain glass rooster!

Here is where I hung up the flag stitchery quilt.
Yes that is a white pic frame with kids pic.;-)
I need to paint it black!
I need to go buy more paint.. my can is almost empty!!
Lord No!! Can't have that!! ;-)
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. That looks like some pretty awesome vintage fabric. It's nice to keep your Americana look up for the whole summer.

  2. i love your it...lord no, don't let that black paint can run out....

  3. Love what all you did with the drapery panel! I need to start redecorating for the different seasons and holidays. I just never take the time.

  4. It all looks so gorgeous. Can't wait to get more organized around here, so that I can get back to decorating. Maybe by Christmas--fingers crossed!!!! I think I may have to add your flags to my to do list. It is very cute.
    Did you get the e-newsletter from Bella's. It talks about the Smithfield quilt show. Lots of classes to chose from.
    Hope you are staying cool. L,A-

  5. Wow Lola, your Americana theme is so beautiful! I love your table runner and the chair pillow, what perfect use of your pretty fabric!

  6. Everything is so charming - I love the rocker. I went to high school in Alaska with a Bill Peden (graduated 1964)- I think he lives in San Francisco now - any relation? Or just a coincidence.

  7. You have a real treasure there Lola. Everything looks amazing! Ann :-)

  8. Fantastic use of the vintage fabric! Thinking about using some vintage fabric on the barstools if it is sturdy enough.

  9. Hi Lola,
    The table runner turned out so pretty. I think that is a wonderful idea to have the Americana theme through the summer, so very summery!

  10. Hi Lola....everything looks beautiful, as usual....hugs...Ronnie

  11. I love the Americana look to everything you did. Lovely runner and chair cover.

  12. I love your decorations, truly patriotic!

  13. Your flag wallhanging looks like it found the perfect spot. It looks wonderful.

  14. Your Americana looks beautiful! Love the tablerunner!
