I found this awesome quilt at a yard sale today for 15.00, it's really pretty. Someone made it for her and not the right colors.

isnt that sad, someone took all that time and then its not liked or enjoyed, just because of colors , they should have realized all the work and loved it. Great Find!!!

oh my goodness! great find for you but so sad somebody put that much time into it just for her and because it was the wrong colors, she sells it. She could have always used it as a picnic blanket or something.. I'm glad it is with you now since you will appreciate it more.

Lucky for you ... it is lovely.

And such a ♥break for the maker.

Wouldn't you just love to be able to find that person and give it back to her?

Oh my goodness ...... just thought about this ...... wouldn't it be amazing if that person were to be posting here on the Board and could say, I made that!!!!!!!!! :)

That would be cool!! Funny how hand made items are not wanted by so many, they rather have store brought. I just love hand made items.
