We had chenille bedspreads as children and I bought our one and only on our way back from our honeymoon. Kept it a long time and finally gave it to an old friend. Don't sit on this type of spread with dark colors---you'll be sorry. Thanks for sharing.
Wow . . . . thrifty!!! We should learn from that!
I remember my Mom used to get a new chenille spread for her bead once year. She would cut the old spread down to fit my oldest brother's bed, then his spread would be passed down to my next brother in line, whose spread would get passed to my sister's and her spread finally to me. My spread would get cut down even further for the baby's bed. The baby's spread would then get cut down and used to recover the floor pillows in the kids' rec room. Eventually, they pillow covers would get cut down and used for rags. Lots of life and wear in chenille.
When I hear the word chenille, I recollect a story my mother used to tell of a bathrobe she had that had no nap from the knees down. What she did have were five children under six years of age...
Oooo, vintage linens club sounds interesting...
I used to belong to a vintage printed linens club, and chenille bedspreads were making a big comeback with the sellers!
Love these blankets, they look so warm and comfy. Thanks quartina!
