    Red face I think I stole 15 Quilt Tops!

    Ok, tell me if I made a good deal or not. My aunts boyfriend (81 yrs young) sold me 14 quilt tops for $225.00 total. Meaning $15.00 each. These were made by his wife and mostly his mother! I haven't counted to say exactly how many of each but off hand I know I have at leat 4 king sized Double Wedding Ring and 2 Twin sized. Good Lord I can't remember but the list contains I think they call it the Blazing Star or Star burst.(?) A few regular 3x3 square block patched with Polyester, A Chicken Top and A kitten Top, and so much more! But the thing is most of these are hand stitched! He said his mother quilted some of these "before my time" he says. They are so clean, sturdy and so well stitched! I'm adding some photos of a few of them. OH! I forgot, the green star has hand stitched crosses on each little square. I think I counted 16 of the squares! Let me know what you think! Thanks!! Kathy...(Momma_K)

    What a deal. Do they have labels? if not maybe you should label them as best as the gentleman remembers. What a piece of history you have there.

    Congratulations to you and your aunt! To her for being spry enough to have a boyfriend at her age and to you on the quilt bargain of the day. I hope you make wonderful treasures from them.

    What a wonderful treasure! What this tells me is that the practice of making tops and not quilting them has been around for a very long time.
