    I found this at the thrift store tonight and I wasn't gonna get it even though it looked so sad sitting there for $2.99 My 6 year old daughter said "but mom it's so soft! You would be sad if one of your quilts ended up here. Lets take it home and love it" And so we did! It just makes me wonder who sat there all that time making it only for it to get sent to the thrift store :( It's so pretty!

    So sad that they couldn't find a child to give it to. It was probably the wrong color for the room or house so out it went. Very sad, but now you have a lovely quilt to love as your daughter said.

    It's a darling quilt. Your daughter thinks just like us. She is a quilter in the making.

    Thanks everyone! Yes, she is a wonderful little lady! We were at the thrift store looking to see if they had a little machine she could learn to sew on cuz she wants to make a quilt so that was really cute. It's actually cotton woven and has a really nice print fabric on the back too so it wasn't made cheaply like I make mine LOL.

    It is super soft! I washed it and was just sitting watching tv and knitting with it on my lap. it is super comfy! It's nice because all the quilts I've made so far I've given away so now I have one for me! I feel like someone out there made this for me LOL

    Smart little girl!!! She already knows that love doesn't necessarily match everyone's decor. So glad you rescued it!! :thumbup:

    Oh Mama, what a lovely little girl you have, such a sweetheart! The quilt will mean so much more to you with such a sweet story to go with it.

    I'm so glad you rescued it. I've done the same thing a couple of times. Just because I know how much goes into making these.
