Hand-stitched Quilt Flimsies

Don't send me to town on an errand!

Our town isn't large, but next to the cemetery is located a small vintage items mall/shop. (Appropriate place for DPS, don't you think?)

On the way out of town yesterday I dropped by the shop just to check out the prices on Pyrex bowls (which were waaay toooo expensive), and I found these three handsewn quilt flimsies (quilt tops).




The story is that the hand pieced quilt tops were made locally by an elderly lady. The seller could not/would not remember her name. 

All three were cheap! 
$8.00 each!

All three need repair! 


All three were lovingly sewn by hand. 




I can't take them apart! 
I can repair them!
I can iron them! 
I may even quilt them!

And Flip is with me all the way.


Hey, there is a Blog Party at http://thebrambleberrycottage.blogspot.com. Join in.

They would make nice tablecloths as well don't you think? Flip has good taste.
