Hello! My sister has been cleaning out an old 1920's home on a farm about twenty minutes outside of Raleigh, North Carolina. She found a couple of quilts stored in a trunk in the attic. We are thinking they are from the mid to late 1800's but I have no way of actually dating them. They are lovely in a way only an old quilt can be. But they are damaged. Sis wants me to sell them on ebay...but I don't know if there is a market or what to try to sell them for since the overall condition is probably considered poor. I am inclined to say good really, with patches of poor. :) But I guess since they would be pretty fragile to use, they would be poor? One quilt is about 78 x 64 and the other is about 62 X 38, but the binding has been removed on one side. It was larger. I don't think I have it in me to throw them away...just not sure what to do with them. Any ideas? Thanks so much!
this is the larger quilt. It is folded in half here...
