    I would like to know what the site is to sell quilts. I don't want to go on Ebay or Graigs list, I live alone in a condo, and wouldn't let just anyone in my apartment. I have a Oriental throw/wall hanging, all embroidered, and Apricot Blush Queen. All embroidered.
    TIA :?

    I have purchased several vintage quilts and I display them in my home. I also have 5 quilts that my grandmother made in the 1930s-three of them are on the beds my granddaughters sleep in. I LOVE old quilts.

    Never purchased any quilts, however, I did inherit quite a few from my
    Grandmothers and Aunts, all hand pieced. I didn't inherit that talent mine, are all machine sewn.

    I pick up old quilts at our local antique store and love them but discovered I'm paying more then need be for them so I've cut back. I have heard of folks getting fantastic buys on EBay but I've never bought a finished quilt there.

    Nope, but I drooled over an Amish handquilted one once with a price-tag of over $2,000. (I didn't actually drool onto it!)

    I bought a king size quilt from Pennys to use on my bed until I get my pieced top quilted. It's been waiting for 4 or 5 years but I've bought the batting so I'm moving forward on it. :)

    I haven't actually 'purchased' a quilt BUT I have gotten several over the years from my local quilt guild during their quilt auction fundraiser. So I did pay for them but don't consider them a purchase.

    Got some great quilts for great prices.

    warm quilt hugs, sue

    I do buy antique quilts. I love the feel and look of the old fabric. I am very interested in learning about quilt history and just imagine what the maker's life was like. Of course many times I can only afford a top or lesser quality ones.

    My family just donated two of my great gandmother's quilts to historical society. They did not have an utilitarian quilts, so a relative had two wool and flannel quilts that they had kept in storage.

    Someday I would like to do some replica's of the old ones.

    I would love to get to Pennsylvania someday and get a real handmade one, but I know this will never happen, as I cannot afford it.
