    My Goodwill Find

    Here are pictures of the quilt I found at the Good Samartian-Goodwill. There are a couple of tears and one of them are the way thru. There are stains on it too. Enjoy, cause this quilt is beautiful, it is all hand stitched.

    Purchase Get Well Cards, scribble different signatures, put them around the house so when someone comes over they will not notice the dust, instead they will see the cards!

    If you are just going to display it perhaps leave it but if you plan on using it than I would fix it. Just my thought.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    A couple of little butterflies appliqued on there would look as if they were always there. Just find the right fabric and go for it.

    It's beautiful. A lot of work went into making that.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    Absolutely beautiful quilt. I like the butterflies to hide the rips. I would try washing it and maybe soak in ozyclean. Then I would put it on display. I would threaten anyone's life if they try to use it.
