I picked up this beauty of a quilt at a yard sale this morning. It is in really great condition, and entirely hand-pieced and hand-quilted. I think the pattern might be called 'Grandmother's Flower Garden'?
I was checking it out and asked if it was indeed hand sewn, and the answer was "I don't know, it was a gift" and that I could have it for five dollars.
Well, I think the person who put the hours and hours into this lovely gift would be horrified by the price tag (besides the fact that they were selling it!), but would hopefully be comforted by the fact that it is appreciated by the buyer.
Not sure what we're doing with it yet - it may be a summer quilt for my daughter's bed. It has a lot of different pinks in it - very pretty!
I couldn't very well leave it there, now could I?
