    I like the story kbun told, I bet that young Mother will appreciate that baby quilt more than a lot of other people would. At least if someone buys a quilt at goodwill they will love it because they picked it out and they had to pay something for it. Sometimes I wonder how much a free quilt is really treasured. I give a lot of quilts away but, I carefully pick out the ones that I give away before hand and to whom.

    Great finds. I often wonder about the stories behind these quilts and how the makers would feel about the quilts ending up at Goodwill. I like KBunn's story....I like to think that all those quilts end up being loved.

    Hey, I wanted go shopping with you. Hopefully the maker of the quilts didn't see them at Goodwill. They are great. I don't do thrift shops often because I just don't seem to find the treasures other people do.

    Neat finds. I'm sure you will appreciate them.

    Can't believe someone gave them up.

    Sure hope the quiltmaker isn't on this board. Gosh, wouldn't that be awful!

    Awesome finds!

    Whenever I am at a thrift store I always check to see if they have quilts and have "rescued" a few. I wish they would be labeled so I could find out more about them. They definatly add variety to my home as they are usually a different pattern or colors than I tend to do.

    Love finding Books there too, usually about $5 in this area last week I found two Thimbleberry books :):)

    Makes you wonder why they ended up at Goodwill. Are they gifts someone didn't want? Was the person who made them not happy with their work? Great find. I love Goodwill. I buy all of my clothes there. When someone admires something I'm wearing, I love saying, "Goodwill!"

    Oh what wonderful finds! I love the kitty one. Printed the picture off so I could try to find the fabric since I collect kitty fabrics. Hopefully they were both loved at some point in time and are definately loved now.

    Lucky you! They are very nice. I feel a little sad - after knowing what gets put into making one of these - it is sad that someone would just "give" it away :(

    Nice find. Never find anything like that in my part of the state. If they did have any, they would cost alot more.

    Well, I have a trunk full of christmas stuff and clothing I"ve been carting around for wks to go to Goodwill. This time I will go in the store to check it out. I have heard that people donate things that can be very valuable and antique dealers shop there.
