    Antique Shop finds

    I went out antiqueing the other day and found these two wonderful full size quilts and just had to give them a home...Love adopting orphan quilts...The fans are all hand stitched both are in excellent condition. So they were my Christmas Present to myself. Merry Christmas to all...
