    Estate sale find

    A pattern I would not do, but admire. The price was right. $35.00, granted made in India, but not badly assembled and hand quilting is good...so I am giving it a new home......

    It looks great in the room! I know many people do not approve of the "made in China" quilts, but they are often well designed, and certainly affordable. The world is changing in so many ways! (But our cats are still soooo very precious!)

    well the cat approves so it must be fine to use. my cats wouldn't get near the bench pad that came on my wooden bench that has drawers (now use it as a coffee table). I ended up tossing out the bench pad. made in China and all sorts of cancer warnings on it! grrrr.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Well, you have your cat's approval. I think the pattern is called Broken Star. I made one on commission for the president of RJR. It is a beautiful pattern.

    Great find! I know many people think you need to make all your quilts but, I have two that I love that I purchased. It's so expensive to make a king size quilt, I admire people who do but prefer my money go to smaller throws.

    Is beautiful but be careful when you wash it. They tend to fall apart early on.
