2 quilts I bought off of Ebay ... Larger images on my blog.. and more photos this a.m
I found these on Ebay with about 12 minutes left on the bid of one and 14 minutes on the other... Both were around 125.00 at the time.. I waited until the last 15 seconds to bid on the first one and won it for 137.00. The second one's bid was run up over the next 2 minutes but I still only paid 202.00 for it.

Beautiful. I'm always so happy when old quilts find a home where they will be appreciated.

I bet the makers are looking down from hea*ven with a big smile that you have their treasured heirlooms. Now they have a new mother who will treat them with love and respect!
