    I found this last weekend.....Paid $5.00 for it! It has one block missing, and some of the seams are frayed a bit. I can see it was made from old clothing, some of the seams from the clothes are visible in the blocks. I will enjoy mending this top and making it into a usable quilt!

    Very nice! I really like the way they laid out the blocks.

    What a bargain! It reminds me of one my GM made - I think of mine as an old fashion I Spy. Have fun repairing.

    I say it's a very lucky quilt to have been adopted by someone who will give it a lot of TLC. Does it have a label telling about it and the maker on the back? Enjoy your wonderful treasure.
