    It is a treasure. Can you imagine someone sitting there making it only to have it sold at a garage sale for $4.00.

    At least it went to someone who understands it true value!

    Congratulations, on your find. I know you'll use it as it was meant to be!

    Their loss, your big find!

    When she finds out how much it would have been worth, she will be an unhappy camper! To bad...it's yours now! Great find!

    I just fall out of my chair when I read stories like this. Why in the world families sell off heirlooms like this for pennies is beyond me. Glad you (who will appreciate it) were there to give it a loving home.

    Very nice! Too bad the family did not cherish it more, but it's their loss and your gain!

    That's ok Eddie, if they settled the score...it gave me a wonderful opportunity to own something special. I will treasure her quilt, no matter how mean and ugly she could have been LOL.
