My Lucky Day!

Lately, I've been carousing antique stores, fleas, ebay, and etsy for cutter quilts so that I may make baby her first Christmas stocking...without success, mind you.  Well, today my luck has changed.  I pulled into the entrance of my neighborhood this ayem to see the corner house had a yard sale going.  I decided to check it out and, lo and behold, I saw a quilt.  It had a few tiny holes, but it was only two dollars so I bought it.  As I was explaining my intentions to the lady as I paid, she mentioned having some older quilts inside.  She brought out a trash bag full of quilts and asked $4 for the larger ones and $3 for the twin sized ones.  I couldn't believe my ears.  I ended up buying four quilts in all.  My mom and I should have fun crafting with these vintage beauties. 

I'm thinking: Christmas stockings, hot pads, baby's first tooth pillows, and who knows what all else.  I'll keep you posted as the crafting commences.
I can picture little square hot pads out of this one, already!
this one has a red and white fabric on the back and is my pick for baby's stocking
Not sure what this design is called, if you know it, please share : )

What a great find! These quilts are beautiful and I wouldn't cut them up, except maybe to make the baby's stocking! Have a happy Thanksgiving!
