    I recently acquired 2 quilt tops from my neighbor's son. They were hand sewn by his mother some time in the 1940's but he was going to throw them out for trash. I decided to see if any of you BYC quilters would like to have them so here they are! The dimensions are 72"x84" (Full/Queen) and there are 2 of them. I don't know what the pattern is called sorry, I know very little about quilting. They are a little dirty from sitting in her attic all this time but I didn't want to wash them for fear of the edge unraveling.
    I can only accept money order, my PayPal account is closed, sorry.
    Starting bid/Auction is for BOTH quilt tops.
    ~Thanks for looking~

    Well, I'm really way too poor to buy these, but I can't resist but start the bidding!

    I'm wild about the second one. [​IMG]

    Those are so neat! I would bet they are made from old dresses and shirts.
