    Awesome, glad you got it. Wonder why no one in the family would want it? What a treasure for you!

    I'm glad it has a new home that appreciates it.

    Reminds me of Sherbert ice cream.

    We cherished our quilts, that Grammie made. They were used to death though. I don't know of any that remain. To my knowledge they were all crazy patchwork,usually with red centers,if the red meant anything I don't know what it was.

    Absolutely beautiful find. Sad that people can part with handmade things for mere pennies :-( But the quilt is lucky-it has someone who will appreciate it and know it's true value. Congrats to you on a great find and a good save so it did not end up as someone's garage floor under the car work blanket!

    Though it makes me sad that few people can appreciate and value a quilt like that from a grandmother, I think the quilt is in the right hands now! It will be a treasure to you even though it wasn't your grandmother who made it.

    Glad the quilt can get with someone who will treasure it. Being the sentimental fool that I am, I can't imagine how anyone could get rid of a beautiful quilt made by her grandmother!

    i love it, but never heard of a summer quilt, makes me wonder how people can get rid of old quilts.

    That quilt was screaming to be loved and appreciated and it found you! You are now officially a quilt rescuer.

She also added that there was no stuffing in it because it was made as a summer quilt. Of course, I was already buying it...but the story to go with it made it even more fun to get. There is not even 1 hole in it and was kept nicely because it isn't very yellowed either. I think it was saved more than used. Anyways, I am very happy to be the new owner of this lovely piece.
    What a sonderful quilt. Nice to hear the history. Now you can use it and pass it on.

    I like wvdek's referring to the quilt as sherbet ice cream.

    Great find. Makes you wonder how the family could part with it.
