    My DD found this on Freecycle and snatched it up for us. She said they reason they put it out was they "didn't like the colors". I think it is beautiful. It is 70 by 88 inches. There is no damage to it and is has the batting and backing - just needs to be quilted. :D

    I like it - maybe it's because I have four of the fabrics in it!

    Some people just don't have any taste. I think it's beautiful.

    WTG!

    Whoever gave THEM the quilt is probably really proud of them. @@

    MY OH MY!! So happy your hubby happened on to this. I cannot even imagine just giving it away because you don't like the colors. The people probably are not quilters either. You are lucky to get it and I like the colors very much!

    Nice find. I don't think people who don't make quilts realize what a treasure a quilt of any color is. I'm sure you will give it a good home.
