    Apparently this was a wedding gift to the young woman I bought it from. The quilt is 52" square and hand quilted by Amish quilters. It is in pristine condition. I paid $13. Too bad she didn't see the value in such a nice quilt. Now it will have a good home.

    That is an awesome quilt. How could she sell it? I guess some people are not sentimental or nostalgic. I know you can't keep everything, but letting something handmade and beautiful go is a crime. Lucky you found it to give it a good home!
