    We went to garage sales yesterday. One of them listed QUILT TOPS and of course, I had to go look! I had to look, touch, feel, front and back and BUY!

    I checked them all over, HD looked too and said we should get some. I exercised some restraint and ONLY BOUGHT FOUR! ! I am not too good at describing different patterns but will try - feel free to jump in and tell me the correct names for the blocks. :o)

    I obtained the name of the lady who did these tops for my records. She pieced them in the late 70's and passed away in 1980. She did a terrific job on these quilts. I greatly admire those who can hand piece with those straight seams and tiny little stitches.

    Great tops but my favourite is the Spider Web pattern with the cheddar background fabric. So fun and funky!
