    Today I bought this adorable redwork baby quilt at an estate sale for $45. I'm still so excited! I love redwork! It's about 42X60, all hand pieced and quilted. No damage of any kind! I'm gonna have to go to more sales.

    How sweet. You have to be at the right place at the right time to find one of those. You are lucky to find it. You must have been one of the first ones there. Early bird gets the worm,,,,er,,,,,quilt.

    Very sweet. I posted a quilt(Look what I rescued) that I rescued from a thrift store for $8.00. Just have to be at the right place and the right time. Looks like it's in much better condition than the one I found.

    Those little bear blocks are the earliest Winnie-the-Pooh pattern... I have one of the Winnie quilts that came to me along with an antique bisque head doll and all of her original clothes... Forget the year now, but early!
