    Found at my Great Aunt's house!

    Found this pillow sham at her house now to find the quilt. Isn't it beautiful and it appears to have been done all by hand! What a treasure!

    It's absolutely beautiful. You have found a treasure.

    I don't mean to be negative, but I can't help but wonder how do you know there is a quilt? Besides, the responses all seem so sure there is one. Where does that assurance come from? (Am I missing some info that everyone else knows?)

    I have a quilt the sham would look nice with. If you don't find the quilt, you can send me the sham (if you can part with it)

    I hope that I am wrong, but, see if you can find a label on it. About ten years ago, I bought two shams just like that at
    Big Lots. They looked very authentic and all hand done. They had been made in China. Apparently by some cheap labor.
    They certainly fooled me. The price was so cheap, I don't know where my usually curious mind was at the time. They also
    had bed size quilts. I just dug out one of my shams and the similarity is very striking. Fabric, quilting etc.

    What a wonderful find! I hope you will be able to find the quilt and that you will share it with us. But even if you don't find the quilt, you have your treasure!
