Surprise!

Mr. Wonderful and I visited Daughter #3 last weekend. We went to a couple estate sales and I snagged this for a couple bucks. Would you have?

I had a suspicion about this comforter. So when I got home, I snipped all the ties.

And…..ta daaaaa! I was right! There was a very well worn quilt inside!

I opened the end and dumped it out. It is admittedly, quite rough.

Here’s the back.

And the front. I love this pattern!

This is tied as well. What will I do with it now? No idea yet. I may try to salvage the best bits. But it was worth a couple bucks just to solve the mystery!

Have a great day!

    Score! And the “casing” fabric may have life in it yet, too.

    I think you will do just like Wendy Reed said, reproduce it! It was a great find. Hugs,

  3. Good eye! You find the coolest things!

    What a delightful find! My guess is you will reproduce it. And, it looks like you might be able to save the feedsack cover fabric for something else. Good job!
