Last Friday I walked up to a garage sale with four quilts piled on a table.
I asked for a price for all four and got a bargain.
An extraordinary bargain.
All four are hand pieced.
All four are hand stitched.
All four use lovely fabrics.
All four do have damage.
All four are backed with a heavy muslin - natural color.
This one has been repaired at some point in its life.
These patches are machine stitched over existing patches.
My favorite of the four.
I quit counting the number of different fabrics used at fifty!
Each fabric is carefully matched with others to form blocks of blue, pink, green, etc.
Please note the folded crease in this one.
Quilts should be rolled - not folded.
If you have to fold, make sure to refold every month to avoid the creases.
Creases cause weak areas in the quilt.
Also, while I am be bossy about quilts, wrap them in white sheets that have NOT been bleached to store.
Not one thing to do with quilts except I bought these bridle hooks at the same sale.
What is wrong with these?
You NEVER hang horseshoes upside down.
Your luck will run out.
