    Antique sale, beautiful quilts.

    This is a blogger from Canada. She went to Christie's Antique Sale. She can be raunchy and doesn't usually post quilts, but these are gorgeous. http://www.theartofdoingstuff.com/th...d-turkey-legs/
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Great quilts for sale! I wonder how much they were asking for them? Seems kind of sad that no one in their families cherished them but I hope they put a label on the back so they won't be completely forgotten.

    Thanks for sharing. Loved the log cabin quilts.

    Did anyone see the bottle cap chains? I wonder how the caps were connected?

    Beautiful quilts....I just bought two quilts from a consignment shop...They are twin size and match...They are both hand quilted..The white background had a few stains. I used some Grandmas quilt cleaner and they are beautiful...I paid 37.00 each....

    I would guess they poked a hole in each cap and threaded them with wire to make each loop.
