It was the best of quilts, it was the oldest of quilts.
I found a treasure today! At a bakery, of all places! This is an antique quilt, hand-quilted, that was being sold by a local Bohemian, retro-loving bakery/coffee cafe. Their food is yummy, and apparently they know how to find nice, old quilts (which I have seen there before). Today I struck gold when I found this one that is in decent shape! It has a few stains, mostly of aging, I think, and they don't stand out. It's intact, pretty, soft, and wasn't exorbitantly expensive. What a fun treasure to find when I was just shopping for a muffin!
The second beauty is a quilt I have to give away. I got it back from the long-arm quilter today.. she did a beautiful job, and the quilt is so cuddly, I am going to have a hard time sending it off. But I must, as it was promised to someone else.
Beauty comes, beauty goes... I'll just have to create another beauty in my Magic Room (aka sewing room).
