    I love it..just like those scrappy quilts. About 25 yrs ago I bought a pieced top (small wedding ring pattern), the color
    was predominately orange..which would have not been my
    choice. Got it at an antique shop..paid $20. Decided it was
    worth that ..orange or not. When I got it home realized it
    must have been pieced by someone elderly because I basically
    had to re-hand stitch the whole thing. It was pretty neat tho
    once it was quilted. I just didn't know I had bargained for that
    much work,ha.

    Love the quilt and I sure wish I could come upon a find like that. It amazes me how people sell these things. Yet someone's junk is someone else's treasure.
