    I was thinking the same thing... But have a feeling hubby will claim this one.. He seems to be partial to the poly ones...

    It is beautiful. When ever my Thrift shop has something like that or I should say they are usually rags by the time they get them, they put a crazy high price on it and it just sits there for months not being loved.

    I recently read somewhere that polyester quilts are a new craze for collectors. You did good!

    Love it! Great find and because it is polly I will hopefully nearly last forever. I think polly has its place too especially since that was common during the time frame it was made.

    I believe it! I like them too. Reminds me of a time and some sweet elderly ladies that have far long gone.

    Lovely. I remember my mother making a poly quilt, back in the 70's. I wish I had it to remember her by. I'm glad you got it and know you will give it a good home.
