I love garage sailing / sale-ing. I got a dress form that way. I got fabrics, batting, threads, buttons, crochet cottons, cutting mats, rotary blades, a light box, sewing room furniture, frames, quilt magazines, rulers, templates... Then this weekend, I adopted a quilt!
"How much?" I asked her.
"Oh... a dollar" she replied. "It was my mother's childhood quilt."
"Who made it?" I asked.
"I don't know. It's probably circa 1930 or so," she informed me.
A buck!? I love it!
Ain't she pretty!?? If anyone recognizes this block, please let me know.
Yes, those are my toes. Ha ha. The quilt is quite tattered & torn & work. It's machine pieced with white thread, and hand quilted with green thread. The batt is polyester.
I'm thrilled, but a little concerned that now I'm going to start collecting (or have I already?!?). Oh my.
