Oldies but Goodies!!

I have a new friend named Cindy. She has graciously given me several older quilts that she didn't want any more!! I was sooo excited to receive them. Here is the first one. It is huge..this is a king size bed. All hand done. It has a couple of holes. But I plan on folding them up and putting them under glass...so you won't see the holes.

This pink one is just yummy!!! All hand done..and no blemishes...just beautiful.

Another simple pattern...a few holes...but still lovely!!

This quilt I bought for 25 bucks at an antique store. All hand done. There is some wear and tear...but all that work....you know how many hours this took?? Yeah..I love it any way.

Here you can see the wear. But, I don't care...It is just lovely to me. 

Cindy and I are doing a trade of sorts...
Cindy has some of her Mother's hand embroidered blocks...that she would like me to make into a baby quilt for her son one day... which of course I will do happily......Thank you Cindy for your generous gifts :):)

i don't mind the flaws? in old quilts. it can always be worked around, especially when it's hand work. good friend you have there.

Wow! I don't even know what to say. How thoughtful of Cindy to give them to you, and what a steal to find a GFG for $25.00 (even worn that's cheap.)

Lucky you!
I think the blemishes just add character after all, quilts were made to be used.
