    Here are some quilt tops I have found at yard sales in the Finger Lakes section of NY State. The pink and green "Carolina Lily" was hemmed around the edges so must have been used as a summer spread.

    Oh what a find. You are one lucky shopper.
    I wonder what the pattern is for the
    second one from the left?
    Love the cat.
