    That quilt is absolutely positively amazing! I can not imagine the time that went into making this 25,000 beauty. How I would love to know the story behind it and something about the 'artist'.

    It is an amazing looking quilt, but I don't know about the price.

    I wonder if the person who made that, had sight after that, and how good was it?

    Now here's your "chuckle" for the night ... when I read diamonds, yes I thought diamonds!
    After all, they do add crystals to quilts now ... so why not diamonds?
    So did I. I was looking for the crystals on the quilt. Remember the 2012 Houston best of show winner? America, let it shine. It has crystals in it.

    What an incredible quilt! I would love to know the story, too... I imagine a Conestoga wagon, with a bored and lonely woman piecing her way across the country on her way to California. Not much else to on that trip. This quilt is a perfect example of the old adage, "If the fabric is too ugly, it just isn't cut small enough". No ugly fabric in that quilt!

    If it's true we learn from our mistakes, I'm going to be a genius!

    Wow Sue! Thank you so much for sharing this! What a beautiful example of a passionate quilter from back before we had all of our beloved quilting trinkets of today! I wish I could afford it. Someone mentioned it was priced 10 times it's value but I don't think so. I do think it is priced too high, but it is probably worth at least $1500. I buy a lot of antique quilts and have never seen one quite like this. Lovely. Interesting that it was made in California but currently resides in Lancaster PA. I just hope the current owner didn't weasel it away from a family for a little money to turn around and offer it for $$$$$$. I always feel sad when I see quilts like this leave a family. Isn't there SOMEONE in that family-even extended- that would value it and pass it down? Sigh, my quilting and genealogy passions combining!

    I appreciate the work that went into this quilt, but I have a problem with dizziness when it comes to the tiny pieces.

    I agree that a lot of work was put into this quilt. I didn't see any bids.
