    WOW! What a great quilt! I certainly would have bought it also. The price you paid is a steal. Do you ever wonder about the maker or what they were going through in their lives when piecing a quilt? I do & wish fabric could talk. Except when it is me as the piecer. :D You don't want to hear some of my conversations with blocks. :D :D :D Happy that you rescued this beauty.

    I just went to the thrift shops today and found two sample blocks 2.00 a piece. First time I ever saw a quilt when going consignment shopping...Woohoo...what a deal!!! - not as good as your deal...but wow...the work someone put into these!!! I was glad to give them a home.

    This is an awesome find. Our thift shops usually have junk or almost junk and the prices are really higher than you would think. This is a very pretty design. Hope you enjoy!

    This use to be my TV cabinet, with the TV's getting bigger and bigger I could no longer use it but could not part with it either. so now it holds my pots and pans, coffee maker, and bowls.
