Oh, I couldn't resist sending an inquiry. The subject line that comes up for the email says "500 patterns--$1000"! Must NOT be a typo.

I'm shocked too! I think most of them you could get on quilterscache.com for free.

I had a nice reply from the seller. In part it said:
"Yes. These are originals. One pattern alone is going for 157.00 on ebay."

I am amazed. I see original patterns on ebay for as much as $99.00 recently but haven't dug back too far. If the patterns are originals, they're a bargain. If you do an advanced search for quilt patterns, completed, you can see what's been selling.

Oh, for crying out loud! as my mom would say.
They may have been copied and organized in the envelopes by someone who took the time to go through a whole lot of patterns-even those dating back to the 1930"s. Possibly this person's grandmothers patterns. And they might not have been.
Price is ridiculous to me. Same ones possibly free online.

You've not been in my house. I say it quite often. Or should I say, way too often.

Over priced, Over priced.

They'd be over priced is they were 100 cents each.
