Oops, I did it again. I bought a quilt this afternoon -- for $15, seemingly my magic number when it comes to old quilts. This one was at Value Village. I hadn't been to la boutique VV in a while, but I was having a grumpy day (the result of three terrible nights' sleep, which were in turn the result of horrible humidity), and that's somewhere I go to cheer up. And it worked! Because this is what I found there, as seen on my backyard clothesline:
It's very thin -- I think it has a sheet of flannel instead of batting inside. The back is plain white, with yellow-orange binding from the front. All the sewing was done on a machine. It also has some small rips and tears. I haven't washed it yet (which is why the price tag is still on it, just above the centre there). I love the cheerful colours, and there are some fun fabrics -- polka dots, etc.
I didn't measure it, but I'd guess it's for a double bed. I think we'll use it to sit on outside. In the meantime, I'm just going to keep looking at it out on the clothesline, where it is blowing back and forth and brightening my day (and my neighbours'? and yours?).
Another orphaned-quilt-finds-a-home success story!
