    I can't believe I found this today...It is 100"x120" KING Size...
    It's in great shape...It has one triangle that is torn but the rest looks great...I paid $12.00 for it. I don't know how old it is, but it looks like older fabric. This is the 3rd quilt that I have found at GW...Just wanted to share with you all...Any ideas how hold it might be?

    The whole quilt. King Size

    Can't help with the dating, but it's a great find.

    This is why I tell my daughter to use her quilts rather than save them. SHe and SIL don't want children so one day when they are gone the ones I make them will be found at the Goodwill.

    Are those cotton or perhaps poly knits? Maybe 70's or 80's if they are

    Feels like poly/knit.

    Yes back in the 70's quilts made from leftover fabrics from sewing clothing was poly knit. I made one back then and have a mixture of knit and cotton in it.

    My guess-'70's. The stitching on top is great--took a lot of time. Nice find.

    I'd say the 70's, too. I have 2 very similar that my mom made for me when starting up housekeeping and we still use them for warm comforts.

    I agree with 70s. Reminds me of the quilt I have that my mom made out of polyknits left from the dresses she sewed.

    Don't you just love shopping at Goodwill? Glad we have the pound store even cheaper prices and you never know what will show up each day. You got a beautiful quilt, Quilt Rescue believe it is. LOL

    Lucky you, great find!.
    Love the way the quilter fastened the layers together with an embroidery stitch.

    Great find so good of you to save it. Looks like a mouse chewed it.

    Our Goodwill only has clothes and junky stuff. The nice things we have taken must go to another part of the country.

    Pretty. Looks like it is made with Double Knit material. My mother made some like that.
