I am bad to rescue cloths stitched by other women.
I like to give them new life,
sometimes by using them,
sometimes by completing them,
sometimes by giving them a place of honor in a new piece.
It makes me sad to see
in a thrift shop.
I can do something about that,
and I do.
And have fun doing it, too.
You know my fondness for quilts,
so you can imagine how excited
in equal measure,
I was to find this quilt
in the bin at the thrift shop.
At $1.29 per pound,
The Engineer and I calculate it set us back $3.57.
A story is already brewing
starring the quilt,
and projects have already been sketched
starring the dresses.
My fingers itch to get started.
Everything here is hand stitched.
The transportation quilt measures 62″ x 78″
and the red and white quilt top is 78.5″ x 90″.
This is gonna’ be fun!
