She Scores!

I went to a fundraising banquet tonight, and I got the best prize in the house at the silent auction... this beautiful antique quilt that was made in the 1940s!


It's gorgeous, and it's in beautiful condition. It includes two qualities that I do not do: applique and hand quilting. Love it!



It even includes a note explaining its provenance. I am the third owner of this beautiful quilt.

The best part is, the money I paid for it went to a good cause. I'm thrilled!
