Mom bought me a quilt
Many of you know that my parents love going to the Monday auction near their home. Most nights they just get a taco salad and strawberry shortcake, but some nights they actually find something to bid on. Tonight one of the auctioneers had brought one of his wife's grandmother's quilts to auction. The highest bid was $60 (mom's bid) but he said he had a min of $90 on it so it went unclaimed. Later he changed his mind and let her have it for $60. It is 140 years old and he provided a card with some information about it. She has no idea what the pattern is and I haven't seen it yet. Can't wait to get my hands on it and may just bring it to the retreat this year. I'll post pictures when I get some.
