Featured and a great find!!

I was featured on "Be @ Home" blog!  It's a great blog that talks a little bit about everything from decor for the home to fashion design and there's some great tips on gift wrapping.  Definitely check it out.....and thanks Max for featuring my blog!

...also today I stopped at my favorite consignment shop and looky what I found!





Oh my gosh!!  ...and only $10!!
All hand pieced and in great condition.  Doesn't smell...no stains.  There are a few seams that have come apart.  Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, but I love antiques and couldn't let it go.

I love to imagine who may have pieced this....where it came from and the story behind the quilt and the fabrics used in the quilt.  Hopefully I can finish it some day and give it the love it deserves.   I just wish that whoever put this top together could know that it is in good hands and that their quilt will be quilted and loved!

Holy cow - what a score!! And only $10?! Repair the seams, quilt it and use it for picnics and snuggling. Or even re-sell it! People pay a stinkin' fortune for that stuff.

This quilt is so pretty. I can't wait to see how you quilt it and work your magic on it. Just beautiful.

great find! I wouldn't have passed it up either! Although, I think I might replace the blue background fabric if it were mine - something more classic in color maybe? (and that lays flat!) Great quilt top none-the-less!
