Sea Island Quilters held a silent auction at their quilt show this past weekend. I just fell in love with this blue and brown, old quilt laying on the table.
It was mine for a mere $24.00. I'm not very good at dating quilts but it seems pretty old to me. A little bit of wear on it but I don't plan on using it for anything other than draping it over the guest bed. First, the Wild One has to move out so I can make it into a guest room ......but that's for another day.
Each log cabin block is 16" x 16" with a little 2" border around it making the quilt about 66" x 84"-ish. Great find in my opinion.
I also bid on these little shaker boxes. Very heavy wood . . . . . not the paper mache boxes that are around now or even the lighter balsam boxes. And the winning bid.......$1.00. As lovely as the painting is, I think I will have to refinish them sometime in the future.
And the best news this week? Computer Geek graduates tonight from college! Big Whoot whoot on that one. He won't be attending the ceremonies, however, because he is busy working at a full-time paying job already as a computer programmer. Can we get an Amen from the congregation on that one?! He's still at home while he saves money to move out but there is a light at the end of the tunnel . . . . . . I'm just saying . . .
