    What about donating it. I'm doing a walk in a month & they give different door prizes. I've decided to donate a couple of things.

    Don't you wonder why this ended up at Savers ? We are getting one here on April 17th, can't wait ! Your quilt top is lovely, BTW.

    I have a quilt top I bought at an antique/thrift store years ago for $20. Very simple pattern of squares in 3 different colors......AND made with a polyester/cotton blend fabric. I had purchased a back for it and had my LA quilt it in a very simple pattern....it's on my bed right now, with a Warm & Natural batting has made the perfect winter quilt for our bed!! Did I mention it was a generous king size!! Seems foolish, I know, for a quilter to purchase a top like this but I hope whoever made it knows that it is being used and loved!!

    Good bargain!! how could anyone let this go for so little money? I live in New Jersey we don't have a "Savers" here.
    what kind of store is it?

    I have visited a Savers thrift store when I go to Boise, ID. Some "good stuff".

    Beautiful quilt top. Lucky you. It is so sad that someone put a lot of time and money into it and it sold for $3.99. I am looking at mine. I am glad you bought it and going to complete someone's project. You did good. Please show it to us when completed.

    I did a search and there are several Savers in the Minneapolis/St Paul area. I didn't know either. I am going to have to check them out.

    There are Saver's all over the country. They benefit Big Brothers, Big Sisters. There's one not far from me - I love them for fabrics they sell very reasonably!! Last week I came home with ten plus yards of batiks in four different colors for $7.99!!!

    What a great deal you got, I LOVE thrift stores, and yard sales. You did a good job, and saved a lot of money to boot. I got a snowman quilt that had the blocks put together for two dollars, it was a full size. I put the sashing and the corner stones in it, and now I am hand quilting it.
