    I found these hand pieced vintage quilt tops at a local antique store today. The owner sold all three of them to me for $70. I think it was a bargain and I am excited to have them quilted. One of the tops has some staining on it which I have addressed in the main section and asked for cleaning tips. However, I wanted you all to take a look at these little beauties and tell me what you think.

    Also, would you back them with a simple muslin and bind with a solid color?

    $70.00 for all three I want to go shopping with you! What a great find. I would back them with simple muslin fabric.

    I think you got a great bargain.... interesting to see what other's say about cleaning that one. I might be tempted to just soak it in some cold water with non abrasive soap..

    Fantastic finds! $70 for all three is a great price in my opinion. And your backing/binding plan sounds good too. :thumbup:
