Vintage Thursday Thingie: Chenille Bedspread










I love using this ‘30s Chenille spread in our guest room-it makes it springtime no matter what date it is on the calendar. This spread has been well loved and is, in fact, “balding” in the center (but then, bald is good :).


Scroll down to my last post to see my reproduction of a vintage quilt: the Poppy quilt by Marie Webster.

What a great chenille bedspread. Everytime I see one I think of the chenille bedspreads my grandmother used to own.

Great bedspread; I've rarely seen them with touches of color. Growing up I had solid yellow and my sister had pink. I wonder what happened to those? HMMM...

I love the chenille bedspreads too!! Ive seen a few for sale that I like but I have a King size bed and of course you only find them in single or double....:(
I also like the quilt you made, very impressive!!!

I love chenille. My chenille robes get bald too because I never get tired of wearing them. Your bedspread is fabulous :0)

I love your quilts! (I have a few vintage quilts, yet another idea for VTT) I haven't tried my sewing machine yet, mostly because since I moved to my new house it has been on top of the kitchen cabinets! I prefer my Bernina. The thing practically sews by itself! Which is why I bought it to replace my vintage Kenmore an Aunt gave me. Of course I kept the Kenmore as well. Yes, I'm a collector of things. Chenille reminds me of a bedspread my Grandma had. *sigh* I miss her.
