Hi. Those of you who know me might remember one of my favorite passtimes is to go to auctions. I've stopped picking up $5 sewing machines because I'm pretty sure if you really don't know how many you have, you probably have enough, haha, but I wanted to share my latest find.
This quilt is all hand appliqued and hand quilted and since I will NEVER make one like this I decided to bid on this one. It is wonderfully made and in perfect condition, not a speck of dirt or wear anywhere. Well worth $80.
Shortly after I won this they started auctioning a 'box of material'. I've promised myself never to bid on anything I hadn't checked out beforehand but I somehow missed this. I ended up bidding and getting it for $25. I immediately had buyer's remorse since it was unknown 'material', but it ended up being quite a score. Besides several yards of nice cotton there were several sets of hand appliqued blocks. I haven't posted pictures for awhile, so I'll try to add one of those.
I actually feel really bad that there was no one in this lady's family who kept these, but I'm going to try and do them justice.
Did I mention I LOVE auctions ;)
