Rainbow trip around the world crib quilt

I just hung this pretty trip around the world crib quilt in my living room, using a vintage yard stick.  Remember that post?  In this "rainbow" variation, there are four different fabrics of each color, blue, red, green, and yellow.  Not exactly ROYGBIV, but you get the idea. 

This is a Pennsylvania quilt that dates to around 1880-1900.  It is 28" square.  The back is made up of two different calicos.


  1. What a wonderful focal point for your living room. I love the way you hang your quilts with vintage yard sticks.

  2. What a beautiful little quilt! lovely colours in that rainbow.

  3. Very nice, and I too love the yardstick hanger! ---"Love"

  4. That really brightens up the room, doesn't it? Just seeing a quilt like that on the wall makes me happy.
