This fabulous old scrappy quilt. It's been well loved and it shows. To me that makes it more special. I'm always sad when I see handmade quilts at Goodwill. Please people, call me, I'll come and get them!
I took it off the hanger to search for the price tag.... $60! (Our Goodwill is quite high priced.) BUT it had a red tag on it and red tags are half price today! Score for me. I didn't even unfold it all the way until I got home and ready to take a picture.
I was so excited by this quilt that I didn't even look at the other 2 that were there. Maybe they came from the same person. Regret!
Just look at that scrappiness.
It is completely hand sewn.
Are these fabric flour sacks?
Or are they yardage scraps?
I love the scrappy border.
The binding is wrapped around from the back.
The purple and white fabric are patches.
It's quite fragile.
The back is very yellow.....is it from age or were the bags yellow?
They are inside out.

Enlarge the photo and you can see the seaming and quilting.
Oh yeah, I also found a vintage sewing machine but
didn't buy it because it didn't have a bobbin case.
Still thinking about that too.
My cherry tree blooms aren't going to last much longer.
We have had some pounding rain the last couple days.
It sure is pretty.
