    LOVE both of them - but just noticed on the first one the placement of the green stars - very unique! Bet she didn't have a design wall to plan it out.

    I love them both....you did an amazing job on cleaning and finishing.....did you use any special detergent to wash it in? I would say you found a fantastic find.

    They are both so pretty, and I love the cheerful spring colors. You rescued some beautiful quilts.

    Beautiful finds & so pretty.
    I never stumble onto nice quilts, they always look like they should be burned they are in such bad shape.

    I bet you are right! the center has different prints..then a circle of solid stars, a circle of prints, another of solids, etc. Every stitch was by hand and the stitches were minute...amazing job on her part for sure! I tried to do the same but it is easy to tell what she did and what I did for sure!
