The other day I was driving, and had the strong feeling that there was something special at Goodwill. This feeling is not uncommon for me, but often it's just a bluff. I'd imagined some lovely old bark cloth curtain panels, just waiting for my rescue. I started looking in the curtain aisle. Nothing there.
I was about to leave when, just behind me, an employee rolled in a rack of bedspreads. I turned around and there was this quilt!
It's about 80 x 80 inches.
Made mostly of lightweight wools and a few silky fabrics.
Hand sewn, hand embroidered, hand tied.
I just love that patchy spot near the circle.
And the pieced and crinkled back.
Want to know what I paid for it? $24.95!
Does anybody know when this might have been made?
And look what showed up in my mailbox today! I joined the Quilt Alliance, thanks to Victoria's urging last week. I must say, these are VERY NICE people. They sent this pack of Tula Pink Prince Charming fat quarters and a hand-written note! Amy Milne, the Executive Director, says I can call her anytime. Geez! I've never been treated so well by an organization. If you haven't become a member yet, click here for Victoria's post and click from there. Super easy. I only wish I'd joined years ago!
