    Hello from Louisiana

    I have been viewing the website for several months and really enjoy looking at the photos of quilts. They are inspiring! I have made four T-shirt / memory quilts for family members and several lap quilts. I don't have a long arm, so my quilts are tied. I like to look around at flea markets; I have found several quilt tops that were started and never finished. I am attaching a photo of one of those "finds".

    I think that this was sold at a flea market because the person that created it may have died. Family members did not want it, so sold it, along with other personal items, at the flea market. I purchased it for $10 and thought it was a bargain. The top is hand stitched, something I don't have the patience to do. I added a batting and back and tied together. Thanks for your comments.

    Welcome from SW Ontario, Canada. You were lucky to find a great looking top. I hand quilt my quilts, but have helped out tying charity quilts with a church group.

    Wow! That is beautiful.. I bet the person at the flea market had no idea what a treasure they had. Congrats on the great find. I personally go to thrift stores and estate sales. Lots of quilting goes on in this part of the country. (NC)
