    Another Goodwill rescue

    I found this a couple weeks ago in a local Goodwill, and couldn't just leave him there. Only $3 for a quilt top is a nice deal in my book. All hand pieced! I think he will make a really nice picnic blanket after a few repairs, oh and batting and backing of course.

    A number of the fabrics look like they were cut from men's shirts. Reminds me of my dad. He almost always wears blue shirts.

    Good find, great price. It's interesting where our sewing projects can end up.

    I saw a gorgeous quilt being used to protect a bookcase being hauled in the back of a rusty pickup truck once. I should have offered the kid $20 for it. He probably would have taken it since the bungee cords were already tearing through the quilt exposing the wood. ~

    Don't you wonder how these wonderful quilts end up in thrift shops and yard sales? If only they could talk.

    Great find. And I can see why you're referring to it as "he." It's definitely a very masculine quilt.

    You're so right about a picnic blanket. The colors are very nice. I'm always drawn to plaids so I would have grabbed that one too.

    Lovely - and sad someone felt the need to dispose of it - give it lots of love and let it know it's wanted...
