    A friend handed me this quilt at church and asked me to see if I could sell it for her. She told me her husbands grandmother made it. She and her husband have been married for 34 years, maybe this can give you an idea of how old this quilt is. She said it has been folded and moved alot but not used alot.
    By looking at it you can tell that it is an older quilt and for the age, looks to be in very good condition. It is very heavy and warm. I does have 6 small holes that are repairable and a few stains that could be cleaned.
    The quilt is laid out on my Full Size bed. The measurements of the quilt is 86X70
    Below is a few pics I took of the quilt so that you can see it better. Post with any further questions that you may have.

    I did not post a price for shipping because I am unsure of what it will be, so.....Auction winner will be responsible for shipping cost of the quilt.

    Payments to be made by Postal Money Orders Only. Happy Bidding

    Man, if we were in the states I would bid in a heartbeat! Priority shipping to here for that would be insane. Good luck, it sure is a treasure!

    Quote:Yes, it is 100% hand sewn. The blocks and the binding are hand sewn and the whole quilt is hand tacked.
