I’m staying at the cutest B&B in North Manchester, Indiana!
Welcome to the Fruitt Basket Inn!
This place is just ADORABLE!
And of course I knew I was in the right place the moment I was greeted, invited in to sign the guestbook, and shown to my room….
Up the beautiful staircase adorned with a GORGEOUS antique red and white star quilt!
I wished I could have gotten a better picture, but the stair way and the banister turn a corner and this was the best I could do.
But just look at this quilting! Double hanging cross-hatch. Feathers in the pieced border!
More feathers and diagonal filler lines in the white border, with echoes of alternating diagonals in the final outer border. This was the work of a master quilter! Yet I want you to notice how that winding feather turns the corner above. It just ends where it ends! LOVE IT!!
Come on into my room!
I’m told the house was built between 1900 and 1910. There are many lovely old homes in this little town – I took an evening walk after dinner last night just to get the feel of the place. More pics to follow on that ---
I’ll be dreaming in this bed for a total of 3 nights! One down, two to go!
I love the little alcove with the desk off the main bedroom. The bath is also back there. SO COZY! ((Yes, and perfect for stitching hexagons last night!))
North Manchester, Indiana ----to this traveling girl, you feel like HOME!
