    I found this quilt at a yard sale for only $5. It is hand appliqued and hand quilted. It is in perfect condition and has some age on it. I fell in love. It is so peaceful.

    What a great find for you. But a sad comment on the value placed on this beautiful quilt by the seller.

    Such a find for you! You'll love it and appreciate it, unlike the seller.

    What a great find. I'd have done the same.

    Thank you for rescuing such a beautiful quilt. Who knows where it might have ended up or in what condition. Thank you, thank you!

    I love it too! Hard to understand why anyone would give this up----I know I wouldn't. I glad it has a home now that will give it the love it deserves.

    Hard to believe someone let it go so cheap-let alone let it go. . .
