It has been several years since I was in a small town quilt shop and this quilt top was in a row of other quilt tops that people needing money had sold to them. This top caught my eye and the sweet lady sold it to me for what she paid for it. I picked it up today from "Dot" the lady who does my quilting and I am so excited. She did a great job on it. This one is so heavy!! All I have left to do is bind it now. At least this one is not complicated like the glorified 9 patch. Several colors of the background fabric don't match but I don't care, I just love the character of it. I am sure the lady that made it did not want one of her family members selling it for a song but I will cherish it as long as it stays under my roof. It has many good years left in it.
