    Hit a couple of the thrift stores today...no machines, but found these...paid a whopping 3 bucks.
    The quilt blocks are handpieced, I'm debating on whether or not to hand piece the rest of it, or just use one of the machines....

    The blocks are all handpieced, the pattern copyright is 1887. NICE work...

    This will be fun to do, two of my favorite hobbies combined...woodwork and quilting!

    Very nice finds....love those heart blocks and the magazine rack will look great (don't forget pics when you finish!:)). I scored well yesterday, picked up a small travel iron (unused, still in the box - but about 20 years old) for $4.00.

    Might just do that Karen...I've thought of several ways that I want to change the way it's put together! :)
