    Found these at a little antique store for $2 each. They need cleaning, but are in pretty good shape. Think I'll take the centers and applique them to some muslin to support and work into wall hangings. The triangles had a little stamp on the back that said made by OMA.

    "Oma" is what my grands call their Dutch grandmother. What a treasure to find!

    just lovely. the binding looks new, so i'd guess that the patchwork one was once bigger and got cut down and rebound. some people just don't know what they have.
