When I'm not working my 'real' job, I sometimes work for a friend who is an estate/household auctioneer. I clerk for him. So...I'm always on the lookout for bargains. Well, this is the last one I got, and HAD to share with you all.....I got this for...are you ready?.... $2.00!!!!!!!!!! Yes, I couldn't believe it! I took it home washed it, and put it on my queen size bed, so you can see how big it is! $2.00!!! Now THAT's what I call a real bargain!!! :)

I have NO idea about age/history. I just was so excited. It's also in VERY good shape. I just love it!

So pretty. A friend of mine found a quilt top at Goodwill. And her sister told her about that site (and I don't know where it is on the Internet) where folks post lost quilts. She said there was a feeler out about something similar and was almost sick with fear someone wanted it back. They only paid a few dollars for it. It was BIGGGGg. So glad she could keep it but there should be a similar site to post and find out some information. The same sister said she was offering a history with the quilts when she did memory or photo quilts. Now that would be nice if you had that kind of information. But, girlfriend you hit the jackpot. Love IT
