    Found this quilttop today at Goodwill. The embroidery is very good. All of flowers, some on beige and some on white, gold lattice. It is big enough for a queen size bed. Some of the seams need resewn as it appears the machine wasn't stitching well. I am so excited. Wed. is my birthday and it is the first one since my DH passed away in Dec. I think I just got a birthday present!

    I believe unexplainable things sometimes happen after a loved one passes....maybe your husband made sure that quilt was there for you to find as his way of saying "Happy Birthday". I know I have never found a treasure like this at a Goodwill... Enjoy and my thoughts are with you.
