    Incredible antique quilt on E-bay

    Take a look at this quilt, make sure you look at some of the pic's of the individual pieces. 25,000 DIAMONDS!!! I am in awe of whomever pieced this quilt!!!! This is just incredible.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Oh my goodness, can you imagine the time that went into that? Maybe it was a quilting bee quilt?

    ​....and did you notice it is lovingly put up with what looks like......PUSH PINS! Good grief I hope someone rescues it but at price, I don't think so.

    That is an amazing quilt. It will be interesting to see if it sells at that price.

    I cringe at those push pins...can't believe anyone would do that especially to such an old and fragile quilt! Looks like they may have this quilt awhile, the listing says Jan 14th.

    Someone with tons of dollars can afford to rescue it. It is beautiful!!!

    Quite the quilt ... imagine the stories it could tell

    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?

    I think it's from Ca. They mention it often enough. LOL

    For that price, they should be real diamonds! Wonder how and why they came up with that price? They kept referring to the fact that it was from California, so guess that justifies the price.
    Have a blessed day.

    Lots of work but I doubt it will sell. It's priced about ten time more than it's actually worth.
