    My Yard Sale Find today

    I found this lovely quilt at a yard sale this morning...for 5.00. I layed it out on my queen size bed and although it covered the top I am guessing it is for a full size bed. It is all hand sewn...have NO idea how old it could be..the lady didn't say and I didn't ask. There were several people that wanted to take it from me....yard sale people can sure be vicious sometimes. HA!!

    I can't believe anyone would be dumb enough to let that go for five bucks. They definately didn't do the work and didn't appreciate what they had. It is beautiful and looks like 30's fabrics. I would love to own that.

    It is so pretty. I thought I'd recognized some of the fabrics in there as some I'd found in some of my Great Aunts quilts, maybe a few feedsacks???
