Vintage Moygashel Nursery Rhyme Cotton - 118cm x 90cm
Sold. I'm out looking for more but in the meantime head to the shop for more lovely things at www.handmadeandvintage.co.uk
This vintage children's cotton features the old woman who lived in a shoe and her many children. It was produced in the 1970's by the Northern Irish Moygashel Mill and is a screen printed linen.
As with all the Moygashel fabrics, the drawings are colourful and full of detail. The children are shown dancing, playing, eating, reading and generally having fun. Alongside them are rabbits dancing, birds perched on toadstools, squirrels and ducks. The trees, flowers and small cottages are also beautifully realised. It has to be said though that the old woman is looking quite stressed!
This is reclaimed vintage fabric in excellent condition. The colours are strong and there are no marks or damage. There are selvedges to both sides - these have been trimmed so some of the attribution is lost.
Moygashel "Nursery" measures 118cm across x 90cm long.
Have a look in the shop for other Moygashel prints. Mix them up for a vibrant and interesting quilt!
